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!!!

He has beautiful color, I know a camera adds weight, but he does look like he is gaining. I'm praying that the flux in his body temp has more to do with his being premature than signaling an infection, Lord let it be so. A friend of mine's newborn had the same temprature flux at birth and is doing wonderfully well now.

He is so precious, I pray for his mom to get over her sore throat quickly. I can imagine how anxious she is. Lord please look after grandma, also, while she comforts her loved ones. In the name of Jesus, amen.

A rosary will be said for Logan and his mother today that hr sore throat clears up so she can be with her beloved baby. If I get to the church a candle will be lit for him and for her as well. This is tough for the mommy but they will get her cleared up soon and this is definitely tough for this little tyke but he's gonna make it too.

Look at all the long distance "aunts" and "uncles" he has acquired now. :) Everyone is pulling for him. I love the following quote:

"A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on." - Carl Sandburg

Keep fighting Logan...God bless you.

FREEPERS....the first part I'm putting up here just came in, the second part was Logan's Daily Report. He needs prayer NOW. Thanks much.

Well I just got a call from Logan's mom and the baby is not doing well at all.

He is now very lethargic and they can't figure out why. Please, please, please pray for him. It is so scary! I can't begin to tell you the fear in our hearts when there is no apparent reason for the down turn in his condition.

I'll keep you posted as I find out anything........

And now the original email from Nana

Hi to all....

Well our little one has had a couple of "not so good" days. It seems the week ends are hard for him for some reason.

On Friday morning, he began to have increased apnea episodes and so he was put back on oxygen. They are also having problems with his body temp becoming too cool, and difficulty in regulating it trying to keep him warm enough.

He is once again being given a broad spectrum antibiotic and we're waiting to see if the blood work shows any infection that they can pick up.

To make matters worse, his Mom has what we think is sinus, so she can't touch him for fear that it might not be sinus. And she wears a mask when she visits him. She has been to the doctor and is also on an antiobiotic just to try and thwart off anything it "might" be. Needless to say, she's worried about passing something on to Logan as well as any of the other little ones in the unit. She is not running a fever, and as long as she doesn't, they said she could at least visit him.

His weight is increasing. He now weighs 1 lb 13 oz.Friday he was 3 weeks old and 29 weeks term in his development.

So this little "termite" is chugging along. And fighting very hard to make it! The weight has made a difference in his appearance. His little cheeks really are beginning to fill out and now his lips are also filling out. While he looks a lot like his daddy, he does have his Mom's mouth.

He is just soooo sweet looking :) His little head is rounded out now and he beginning to take on more of a regular baby look. A miracle from God...... no doubt about that.

The staff is considering giving him another transfusion. They think that may help with the temperature adjustment. Again, to their credit, as soon as something starts going a little wrong, immediate actions are taken.

They don't just "watch and see what's going on". Every minute with these babies is so critical. I will tell you that it's terrifying when he has these bad times.

I've only know this type of fear a couple of times in my life, and it's not a pleasant feeling at all!

Please, please continue to remember Logan in your prayers. And also his Mom that she may get well and remain strong to give support to her infant. He definately DOES recognize her voice. When she talks to him, he reacts by some type of body movement.

When the nurses or I talk to him, there is none. Point proven :)

As of this morning, he is a "little" better according to his care nurse.

So here's hoping and praying that he's once again turned the corner and is on a better road again. I'll keep you posted when there is something more.

Our continued thanks to all of you for your caring, and prayers.

I'm praying Grammie .. oh please let little Logan be ok

BTW .. Grammie .. since his mom can't be there next to him at the moment .. maybe they can tape record her voice to play it to him ... I don't know if the docs will allow it, but they can ask

Someone archive this thread.

Let's try to remember, although a long time away from now, to print it out in about 15 years in 2018 to show to a strong little young man named Logan who will be amazed at all the nice comments, prayer, hopes and general American positive energy that went his way at a very critical time in his life. I'm sure it will be quite a statement to him to remember for many many years.

I keep thinking about this beautiful baby and I get tears when I see his sweet little face! My baby turns one in less than 3 weeks and every day I remark at the things he can do. I want Logan's mommy and daddy to be able to see that too because it is the greatest thing about being a parent, IMO.

Prayers still going for you Logan and family!
