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 son was born with Tetralogy of Fallot [4 problems with his heart, including a hole and valve issues]. He had a Blaylock shunt when he was six months old, open-heart when he was 4, and then again when he was 14. Today, he's 30 years old and completely healthy. May it be so for your niece.

May a modern Elisha be with Logan


2Ki 4:33 He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the LORD.


2Ki 4:34 And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm.


2Ki 4:35 Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up, and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes.


2Ki 4:36 And he called Gehazi, and said, Call this Shunammite. So he called her. And when she was come in unto him, he said, Take up thy son.

"Unto You, Most Merciful Father, we return with praise and thanksgiving, for from Everlasting to Everlasting, thou art God.

You who knit together our beloved Logan to be the joy of Beth and her husband's hearts, who brought this same joy to Nana and Brad's Gramma and their cyber families ... continue to look with Mercy and Healing upon this precious child, that he would be strengthened by Your Very Presence, and that he would be healed by the touch of Your Hand. Place a hedge of protection around him, that nothing infectious or injurious would further invade his body ... grant the greatest wisdom to all in his medical team, that each decision and each procedure would be guided by You, that they might be participants in Your healing.

Send healing coursing through Logan's arteries and veins, O Lord ... ease his breathing and clear his lungs and protect his heart. Let the medicines invade every part of his body, that he would be renewed and refreshed and restored. Watch over his beloved family as they watch over their beloved boy ... may they feel the Comfort of Your Presence, the Eternal Assurance of Your Love, and the Joy of Renewed Health for their precious boy.

May it be thus, O Lord, may it be thus, in the Matchless Name of the Lord Jesus Christ we pray, Amen ..."

Morning Prayer bump..

Thank you for the words Pegita.

We are praying that the IV antibiotics are kicking in (just got the ping).

Keep a coughin' lil buddy to clean out those lungs.

Have mama ask for "the vest' it is a vest that vibrates and clears out the lungs. Hil Rom is the company. It has done wonders for those with chronic lung crud due to cystic fibrosis and other underlying issues that cause cruddy lung.
The company will loan it to you for a free 30 day trial with no obligation to purchase.
Momma just needs a doctors order for it.

THIS JUST IN FROM NANA!!!!!!!!!

Well the little one is about 50% better today. Thank God. He still has the IV, monitors and oxygen and they said he will continue to have them until at least Sunday. But he did manage to smile at the little dinasour I took him and was eating a taco with hot sauce on it!! He won't eat them unless they have hot sauce :) His cough is much looser and that's a good sign. Still running a low grade fever.. but not spiking like it was yesterday and all week for that matter.

The Pulmo doc came in and said she was amazed at Logan's rapid improvement. I had to smile..... she just doesn't know the power of our prayer warriors!

Beth said to PLEAZZZE express her gratitude once again for all the love and prayers sent to Logan, her and our entire family. If anyone wants to know the meaning of Thanksgiving...look into Logan's big blue eyes. Our miracle indeed that everyone is such a part of. We give thanks daily for having him in our lives.

Here's a picture of him I took this morning. He looks so much better, but still has those little sick eyes.

I'm going back up this evening. I'll update you then.....Love, Nana






BG Note...THANK YOU ALL, again, for praying for this little guy. Er. Big kid. ;) Please don't stop...God bless you ALL!!!

Aw...the poor little guy does have the "sick eyes" bless his heart.

I saw that pic and it reminded me of Nana's note about him being proud of the blue "board".

I am praying hard for you Logan..and you sure are keeping up your end...fighting with the spirit that has gotten you this far.

Keep up the good work Logan...and I pray that God keeps up the good work also.
