I already said "Congratulations", via text message, to my friend who's wife just gave birth to a girl at 25 weeks.
Assuming that everything is ok, or at least going well given the situation, is it OK to say "Congratulations"?
At first I said "let us know if there is anything we can do", or something like that, but upon reflection, I felt like being apprehensive about the situation is decidedly negative, and that does seems quite INAPPROPRIATE for the birth of a child. I figure that a new life has started, and even though the circumstances might not be ideal, it's still something to celebrate.
I may have already put my foot in my mouth, but thought I would see what others think.
