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!!!

My mother was three months premature and weighed about as much as Logan. This was in 1905 in Istanbul. She grew up to be a strong and healthy woman and passed away at the ripe old age of 90.

Prayers for baby Logan.

Thiry years ago my Godson was born 3 months early. He is now an elementary school teacher with a 2 yr old daughter of his own. Prayers do work and mine are with this family. Thank you for reminding me of the miracles that God performs.

Prayers on the way.

My co-worker's daughter-in-law had a little girl who was 3 months premature and weighed about the same. A year later she is the most charming little girl I have ever seen! So keep praying, miracles do happen.

Please update us of Logan's condition if possible.

Yesterday I met a little girl who was born three months early and only weighed 1 lb, 4 oz at birth. She is now a happy healthy 18 month old with a new baby sister just born less than 2 weeks ago.

God bless this beautiful little boy and his whole family. They will certainly be in my prayers. Keep us posted on his progress please!

It's normal for a newborn to lose some weight as they transition before they start really gaining (docs usually let new parents know this off the bat, so they don't flip out) - obviously for a child this size it's significant.

But children almost half his weight have gone on to thrive - so I have high hopes for the little guy! The fact that he's responding so soon to his mom's presence is a really positive sign.

God bless him.

Lord, we thank you for this precious new life You have brought into the world and ask for Your blessings upon him. Watch over Logan and keep him held close to Your heart. Guide the medical professionals caring for him. We thank You for the faith of his family and ask that You give them strength.

And, Father, we thank You for the lives of other tiny newborns whose stories are mentioned on this thread. Bless their families and let them continue to witness to Your greatness and Your nurturing love. Amen.

Preemies usually do lose a little bit of weight, not to worry. My little girl did.

Lord bless this little miracle child and his family.

Father, heal and reveal Logan to his parents that they might see the child he can be. Please guide them, and guide the doctors. Let them receive the best care, the best advice.

Please, Brad's Gramma, tell them that I have been involved with three of these very premature births, and nearly had one myself. In each of these cases, doctors told the parents to pull the plug at some point, that their babies would be "too brain damaged" to live. One set of parents chose to follow the doctors advice, and they will never know if their daughter might have lived a beautiful life. The other two babies parent's refused the doctor's entreaties to end their infants' lives - and their babies grew to be bright, happy children. They were not horribly brain damaged; they even learned to speak and sing. They were not perfect, but whom among us is?

I'm beginning to think that all the neonatal units have a "doctor death" that exorts the parents to pull the plug; this way, they cannot be sued for wrongful death if the parents choose life. But how many beautiful babies have been needlessly killed by this practice? Don't take anything they say at face value; one of these children was born at 22 weeks, and each week the doctor would come around and try to get the parents to pull the plug. This little boy, now three, is so darling, and so funny, and so alive, all because his parents believed that he deserved a chance to live...

Tell your friend not to worry, as long as she is getting the best in medical care.

I have twin grandaughters, turning five next week. They were born 3 months premature. One was 1 pound 14 oz., the other was 14 oz. That's right, 14 oz.. Within several days she was down to 10 oz..

Both little girls have been not without problems, but they are coming along very well. Fortunately, their father has great medical insurance. The first three months' bill was about $1 million.

By the way, prayers certainly don't hurt.
