Skip to comments.Prayer Request for A Tiny Baby (Update in post #12850)
Posted on 08/11/2003 12:57:30 PM PDT by Bradís Gramma
If you will, please remember this tiny baby in your prayers. Hes the grandson of a very dear friend of mine. Logan was born on July 25. His due date was in October, making his mommy 26 weeks along, being born 3 months and 3 days early.
Logan was 1 lb 9.4 oz when he was born and is now weighing, as of this morning, 1 lb. 8.3 oz. The little guy is now 12-1/2 long.
Hes a real trooper and is fighting with all his little body can fight with. His Grandma said that hes starting to recognize his mommy when she comes in the room and hears her voice. She said he tries so hard to open his eyes, and starts kicking his feet.
I asked my friend if there were any specific prayers, other than the obvious and this is her reply A prayer of thanks for the miracle called "Logan.
On a personal note, Ive read the emails daily from my friend. Ive known her for years, Ive heard her talking about her family for years but Ive got to tell you that Im SO impressed with how her children have all banded together in support. What an incredibly wonderful and loving family.
Father God, we lift up Logans little body to you. We pray that you can strengthen him hourly, daily, weekly, until hes grown enough to go home with his precious family. We ask for guidance for the doctors and nurses who are caring for him. We ask for strength for his parents and extended family. Thank you so much for the gift of life. In Jesus Name, Amen
Fellow Freepers .I bring you Logan!!!
TC. Prayer sent heavenward for freedom from pain and a successful surgery and a quick & complete recovery.
And, Logan....my gosh. He's losing that baby look and getting the boy face. Thanks for an update.
Prayers up for TC. That everything goes perfectly and he's out of pain fast!
It's an awful sort of pain.
Logan is in my prayers and so is his Mommy ...God Bless You
Logan is truly a miracle, and we've seen another of many miracles on FR: we're a family.
You be good, TC, and get better!
My new thought for the day: If that which does not kill us makes us stronger, can't I just lift weights instead?
The only prayer I will say for TC today is that I get to him before he goes to the doctor so that the injuries I inflict upon him can be fixed at the same time as his leg! TC and I post to each other on a regular bases and he has NEVER told me about his injury. Just this weekend I invited him to a rig christening in Arcola and he said in passing that he was going to the doctor in a manner that made me think it was routine.
Were I not posting this from the docks in Freeport, I would hunt him down and hurt him today!
TC - while I don't like you (though you might have been ok before the Marines) can I collect mail, papers, or hire a stripper ... er ... nurse to give you bed baths? I know you have my cell number but I'll resend it to your email and FReepmail just in case. The offer of help in no way reduces the chance of a (rear end) kicking.
Prayers up for you & cause of pain, TC!
Hang in there. Prayers continue.
Prayer sent for you TC, and praise to the Lord for Logan!
So, Please do what the Doctors tell you to do.
You can always get a good second opinion from another Orthoedist and Neurologist...at a different Hospital or facility, if you feel it necessary.
We Will Keep You In Constant PRAYER, lifting You Up before The Throne of Grace and Mercy.
PS: and I agree 100% LOGAN IS GOOD MEDICINE!
That Precious Smile and those Beautiful Eyes are.....PRICELESS!!!
Yea she gets uppity and does that to lots of us!!!
God Bless You Brother
I sent you a FReepmail and I meant what I said.
Wow, didn't know about your accident. Somehow or another I missed it. Been so wrapped up in the Terri Schiavo situation I think that has pretty much taken my time as I went to those posts immediately.
Am so sorry to hear about your accident. How awful that must have been for your. We do hope and pray your surgery will take care of it for you and that soon you will be out of the pain you are having.
It is time to pray for you and pray for you is what we will do. So glad Logan's photos helped you for that brief time. Looking at him is enough to take anyone's mind off their troubles. He is quite a boy and always felt he was allowed to live after that long bout for life because he was put here to do great things one day.
Take care, think good thoughts...and know this household along with all the other Freepers will be praying for your recovery very soon.
Once again, so sorry you had this darned accident. Keep the faith...know you will and so will we. God bless.
Indicative of a brain?
TC's head is solid bone!
This child just melts the heart. Seeing him so vibrant, alive, happy and so cute is just heartwarming after all he has been through. He's the cutest isn't he? Love, the one with him looking out the window AND....the one when he is asleep. Thanks God for Logan and....Please God...heal our TC. He has done so much for so many...he is being tested now and we know he will pass with flying colors. Thank you very much for the photos...we hope we can see Logan as an adult one day and hope you continue sending photos. :)
You old warrior! I wish you the best in your upcoming surgery and healing. You deserve nothing less. I have recurring bouts of sciatica, so I know where you're coming from. Be patient, it takes time and lots of therapy.
Our boy Logan sure does bring a smile to everyone's face.
Thanks for giving him hugs in the past and now... even if he fights you!
LOL.....Have ya heard from TC ?
OH yes!... and he should be ashamed of himself for those FReepmail this morning ........;-)
So he didn't hurt his hip trying to walk like John Wayne this time ??.........:o)
No, it's my understand he was trying to walk like Ru Paul!
We all love him, he's been an incredible friend to all of us...Please heal him.
Get well and heal up soon TC ~ we're praying for you!
Hang in there!
Hope they can do something like that for you. Praying that they can.
The post op care is VERY important.
I like you don't say much when in pain and surgery for me is not an option so home care and letting things that flare up heal is very important.
King Vanity and I have been doing accupuncture for bone, muscle and attacment injuries the last few months.
The practitioner is also our RPT from the local Home Health hospital that is my advisor on his pulomonary needs.
We know all about chronic pain TC and the best pain killers are worthless.
It sucks as you know being a physical working person sitting still or not having a limb functioning is more very frustrating. And relying on others is not in our vocabulary. So I assume you are much the same.
So to get this hip fixed PLEASE TAKE the time needed to allow post op HEALING as that will be the KEY to your outcome. TRUST ME on this.
BTW I knew something was up since early in Feb. as your postings sluffed off and I knew if it was about your daughter we would have heard so I had a feeling something was up with you.
Which means Prayers were going up long before BG clued us all in.
Don't let HC kick your ass.
Dear TC aka COB1 :) May your surgery be successful and give a pain-free life and come back to us soon. We love you!
Oh...You are Soooo....Baaaad!
I know that You love your Brother...our Texas cowboy.
And You Are Praying Foe Him Too...Aren't You?!!!
LOVE YOU GUYS.
This man has some mighty
weird nice friends, doesn't he? You will note....I didn't ping them. (gulp)
You, too, TC, have been a blessing.
Look at those blue eyes. What a cutie.
OK babe, just WHO did you have in mind???
I think his chances should be pretty good if there aren't any further complications. Tinier ones than him have made it.
Agreeing in prayer for T.C. - in Jesus' name, healing and freedom from the pain.
EAKER! Yes! it was EAKER'S FAULT!
Now, if you don't mind....there's another Tiny Baby who needs our prayer, too. His Mommy and Daddy are now Freepers.
YA GOTTA CHECK OUT THE FIRST LINK FIRST. :)
Simcha7 !!! We are sooooooo glad to see you on the thread again!! How are you? We've missed you so much!!
Our love to you and Carl...
"TT", Beth & Nana
This is one of those drive-by postings 'cause I can't sit very long.
Thank you for all your prayers. I have a lot of solace in knowing that so many are talking to God about my condition.
The problem with getting second opinions is that it usually leads to third opinions.
I have one ortho who wants to cut and another one who doesn't, so I have an appointment with a hip specialist at the University of Texas Health Science Center on the 7th which will be the deciding opinion.
Searching the Web I haven't found anything good about bursaectomies. Even though it's sometimes necessary, it appears to be the prior step before hip replacement, and that's why I'm hesitant.
I'm on Darvocet now since the Vicodin quit working, and, so far, it's helping a lot with the pain.
An update on my daughter in case some of you have a loved one with MS:
She has always been on the cutting edge of new treatments for MS, volunteering for every new idea and medication.
The technique I called "blood cleansing" is actually the removal of the blood, crippling the "T" cells and putting the blood back in. The body doesn't notice the "T" cells are crippled for some time, in her case, about three months. Then the body kills the crippled cells and replaces them, and the procedure has to be done again.
A new finding in MS is the need for Vitamin D. At least twenty minutes of direct sunlight a day is recommended, and lots of milk.
This may sound easy, but a lot of MS patients are bed bound, or at least housebound, so it becomes a problem to get sunlight. The inclusion of large amounts of milk in the diet also combats osteoporosis, which is common in people, like MS patients, who are taking steroid treatments.
I thank you for your prayers, my friends, and I especially need to thank Logan's Nana. She made a four hundred mile round trip to fix food for me so that I wouldn't have to worry about cooking.
I have enough food in the fridge and freezer to feed our military forces in Iraq for a few weeks.
BG, thank you for all the pictures of our little miracle.
I'd bet you have some Easter pictures coming!!
HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!
OUR LORD HAS RISEN!
Happy Easter. Prayers continue.
God Bless You AND Faith Brother!
You are in my prayers.
Bless your heart. I haven't had time to post a whole lot or do anything other than worry about Terri. But I did get the prayer request and have been remembering you to the Father.
Wish I could whip up one of my famous honey bun cakes for you!
Take care, and you're still in my prayers.
Well, take your time on deciding what it is you want to do. YOU have to be comfortable with your decision. I will pray you make the right one. In the meantime, glad the new med is easing the pain.
Glad to hear your daughter volunteers for various treatments too. I never knew about the sunlight and Vitamin D but it makes sense since a lot of the patients never get outside. That's great information. Our wishes and prayers for her as well.
Wow, wasn't that nice of Nana to do that trip for you with all that food? Bet the troops would love to be sitting down there with you making short work of it. :)
Blessings to you on this Holy Saturday and Happy Easter!
Hey TC - I had no idea you were having struggles. I have been thinking about you since I heard about the explosion in Texas City. I am so thankful you weren't there! *HUGS! And thanks for the Faith update, too!
Oh my gosh TC, I knew you were going to be out of pocket for a while but I had no idea you were in such pain!
I am praying for you to be free from this pain.
He won't let me shoot his new toy until he gets better.
He is a mean ole buzzard.
We need to keep up the prayers!!
Prayers to you all.
You take care of yourself, TC. I'm praying for you!
Thanks for the update TC ~ we love ya!
Prayers for your health and comfort, TC.
If there's anything we can help you with just holler.
