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!!!

Hi, Brad's Gramma,

Some of the things Writer said reminded me of something else I have heard of. You may want to have the family check to see if their state has a catastrophic children's fund. The expenses may become overwhelming. (Someone should give them a heads up on the cost of an extended stay in NICU.) After they have addressed the expenses with the hospital and other caregivers, they may be able to turn to such a fund for assistance.

And they will be overwhelmed by the expenses for time in the hospital and after the hospital. Tell them it will take time but they will get past that, too.

In addition to pictures, they also may be able to bring in very tiny plush toys or animals. The NICU nurses will put them in a plastic bag since everything must be sterile in there. With the pictures and toys, at least they will be personalizing things and it helps both the baby and the parents.

That baby is the most important thing though. Another prayer bump.

Thank you for the ping to prayer. Thank you for including a picture of Logan!

Someone may have already posted this, but I looked up the name Logan and found that it means,

"from the little hollow," or "small cove."

Very precious.

Thank you, Father of Life, for Logan!

fervent prayers for Logan. my best friend gave birth to a little girl at the same gestation, 1 lb. 10 oz. That little girl is now an honor student going into 10th grade. She wears glasses and has a scar from her ventilation tube, but she is otherwise fine. i pray the same for Logan.

Hang in there.

That picture looks all too familiar for me.

Our daughter Kathryn was born at 1 lb. 6 ozs.

She is now 11 years old, and doing very well. She continues to get growth hormone shots on a daily basis, but is one strong willed little girl.

God Bless, and prayers are sent your way!

Fifty four years ago I was born 2 1/2 month premature. Technology has improved greatly since then.

Little Logan is in my prayers.

Please keep us updated.

Prayers lifted.

We just had a similar story in our local paper. A baby girl born weighing so very little, months early....16 years ago!

She returned to the neonatal unit on her 16th b.d. to deliver bundles of small teddy bears for the infants there now, and their parents, and the nurses.

Please Lord,

Watch over, bless and keep safe this tiny and precious little boy. He has shown himself to be a fighter and one that wants to grow up and spend time with his devoted and loving family. We ask You to please grant the prayers and petitions of this tiny baby's family.

We request this of You, Oh Heavenly Father, as Your humble servants and in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Btw, Brad's Gramma, it may be of some comfort for your friends to know that when Isaac Newton was born very prematurely 360 years ago, he was so tiny he could be "fitted in a quart pot."

Now it may be too much to wish for to think that little Logan will grow up to be the next Isaac Newton; but every life is precious and has a purpose. God bless the little guy.

My family will be praying for Logan. It seems we've prayed a lot for preemies this summer - our friend's brother had a child in May who was born at 26 weeks. 1 lb. 12 oz., he came home in July and is doing fine. Our next door neighbor had a little one about 8 weeks early and who weighed in at just over three pounds. She was only in the hospital for a few days before she came home.

Thanks for the update. My son was a premee at 3 pounds (not quite as small as Logan) and lost weight initially and had a hernia as well, it then took a little more then a month till he got to 4 pounds and they let him come home, just in time for his first Christmas. He is now five and is my pride and joy. Tell your friend to hang in there and pray and I'll keep Logan in my continued prayers as well. Getting off the ventilator is great news! God Bless.

LOL!!! Don't go looking M0sby. I am talking about butters in Hong Kong. It's our traditional size here since the 50's. All butter cubes are 8 oz. in wax paper wrapper. No box. Anyway, my cube = 2 x your cubes. Therefore, I probably have two times the cholesterol than you do. LOL!!

Cheers! Keep praying and bless you!

Dear Brad's Gramma...prayers offered for this baby. Thanks for the ping, Tonk. dlfromthedesert, thought you might like to see this.

If I recall correctly, dlfromthedesert has stated on another thread that he/she works with little ones in a NICU and that miracles are so often forthcoming there. These little ones have a great will to be here.

Dear God in Heaven,

Bless this great little soul Logan who is putting up such a fight to stay alive. Bless and inspire and guide his doctors and nurses as they direct his care. Help his different systems develop rapidly and perfectly. Comfort and strengthen his precious family and loving friends. We welcome Logan into this realm and pray for his protection and healing so that he may fully complete whatever assignments you have given him. We petition you for a miracle, and we are grateful for your loving answer.

Father, multiply our prayers to cover any and all who are in a similar situation. We surrender our wills to yours and call forth your own will in this entire situation.
Amen
