Prayer Request for A Tiny Baby (Update in post #12850)
Myself | 8-11-03 | Brad's Gramma

Posted on 08/11/2003 12:57:30 PM PDT by Bradís Gramma

If you will, please remember this tiny baby in your prayers. He’s 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.

He’s a real trooper and is fighting with all his little body can fight with. His Grandma said that he’s 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, I’ve read the emails daily from my friend. I’ve known her for years, I’ve heard her talking about her family for years…but I’ve got to tell you that I’m SO impressed with how her children have all banded together in support. What an incredibly wonderful and loving family.

Father God, we lift up Logan’s little body to you. We pray that you can strengthen him hourly, daily, weekly, until he’s 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!!!

Oh Cowboy....thanks for letting us all know. The crowd was starting to get restless around here, not knowing what was up!!!

I know you're doing the best to get this problem fixed, I know you're going to find the best doctor and the best solution to your hip problems.

Nana? YOU are a wonderful WONDERFUL friend!!!! :)

We, this mighty group of prayer warriors, will be praying for you, as always.

Love you,
Bertha

An old man of about 70 sat down beside of me when I waiting for my dope at the drug store, and he said, "Okay, tell me the story behind the cane."

I told him the whole story, and he replied, "I retired from medical practice, and I'll give you some advice: Anything that is remotely connected to your back, don't cut unless you can't do anything else."

It was too coincidental that this old doctor happened to be at the same place at the same time as me. I think God was sending me a message that I might be wanting to cut too quick.

"We know all about chronic pain TC and the best pain killers are worthless."

I'll bet you do, op.
I used to say that I could understand, but I didn't.
Only when you live with it 24 hours a day with no relief in sight can you understand.
When the body finally gets so exhausted that it drops into a quick recovery sleep of a couple of hours then wakes back up to the same pain, one can understand.

My heart goes out to you and KV. You've got more strength in your big toe than I'll ever muster.
You would think that in this age of medical miracles, there would be a pain killer that works, but I agree. I haven't found one, either.

May God bless you and KV, and may you have a Happy Easter.

You're hoping I take enough of these pain killers that it knocks me out so you can steal my new toy.

Prayer ping. TexasCowboy needs our prayers...he was injured and is experiencing so much pain it is affecting his ability to post. If you want to know more...check his posting history. He has explained the details of the injury. For the latest...see post 10,988.

Please post your replies to TexasCowboy


TexasCowboy, I started praying for you when I noticed I hadn't seen you for a few days. I checked your posting history and lifted you in prayer right away. My prayers will continue for you, so please keep us updated.

Brad's Gramma, Thank you for the ping.

Blessings,
trussell

If you want on/off my prayer ping list, please let me know. All requests happily honored.

TC, I am so sorry you are suffering so. I am sending up prayers for SWIFT relief and FAST healing to 100%!!!

I certainly know a lot of people who have had hip replacements and ended up better than before. Whatever you and your docs decide, let's just get you out of this pain and back to doing all the things you love to do.

BG, Logan is delicious!

Oliver is now two. He is a beautiful and sweet little boy. He is still very small for his age, and now we have delayed speech, but he has been all checked out and is making some progress. He only says about 3 or 4 words.

I will try to post a picture of him.

I found this thread looking for recent posts from TexasCowboy, and wouldn't you just know this would be the place I would find him?

I've gone back to the beginning of the thread and am so uplifted by the posts.

Bless you for sharing this wonderful story, and bless you TC for leading me to it!

Black mambas? LOL. TC, that just proves you're going to be just fine. It's the ornery cusses in this world who live to be 100.

Sorry, I haven't been on this thread since your injury was announced. Prayers for you and hopes for the best orthopods to take care of you. Pain sux! And it radiates. If your problem is in the muscular-nervous system, how could a hip replacement help? Your hip joint is hurting now, but could it be pain radiating there from the nearby source? Might be things to discuss with the pros at TX Med Ctr.

I hope you have some chocolate Easter eggs to make you happy today!

God bless,

My 8 year old daughter was born at 27 weeks and weighed 3 pounds.We were lucky that she was going to be a big baby at full term which allowed her to reach 3 pounds so early.It's amazing how far the technology has come over the years.I hope this baby is able to lead a normal and healthy life the same type of life my daughter is blessed with.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Happy Easter, Logan!




Well, our little guy's had another fun Easter, from the sounds of things!! It seems like each day is an adventure for these little ones, doesn't it? Here's part of Nana's email to me....

Logan had a ball!! He loves his girl cousins and kisses them at will all the time. He won't kiss Beth or me!! He had a HUGE day. He played AT the sandbox (he will NOT play in it!), hunted eggs, although he really liked trying to stand on them or throwing them better. His "Basket" he liked better on his head :) And... finally we took him to a field of blue bonnets just for that perfect spring picture.

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think we'd be where we are. He's a joy, and getting better and better every day.

Our prayers were said for all of you, our special friends. Where would this baby be without you? God help me, I don't even want to dare go there.

Happy Easter to everyone!

And now....LOGAN!!!!































































Happy Easter Freepers Friends!






The html looks all goofy from my end...and Nana's waitin' to hit the hay so she can watch Logan tomorrow. That is my story and I'm stickin' with it! :) If you want OFF my Logan/Malachi/sometimes I think it's important ping list, please FRmail me...

Well, this was what I've been waiting for!

I love those Cool Hand Luke pics in his little blue cap!

It seems like just yesterday that I posted those of him dumping his Easter basket out on the ground!

I told his Nana that we now have the name of the color of his eyes - Bluebonnet Blue!

He's one happy little boy, and he infects everyone around him with his happiness.

Thank you, BG!
Thank you, God!
Thank you, FReepers!
