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!!!

"taco with hot sauce on it!!"

That's good for him. The capisen (sp) in that hot sauce will help loosen up his congestion.

My daughters almost died of RSV 10 years ago. They were only 6 weeks old at the time.

I'm glad he's doing better. RSV is a very dangerous illness that lots of people are not aware of.

My prayers are with him.

Thanks for the update, and good to hear about the improvement. Willingness to eat anything is a great sign, but taco with hot sauce says something about an appetite.

Continued prayers for the little one and his family.

I'm late in checking my mail, but wanted to post to your ping! May God enfold this family and this precious little one in His Loving Embrace, providing strength and comfort. May He place His Healing Hands on Logan, making him whole and strong to face his long and happy life ahead. As always, God, please bless and guide the hands that care for this young man, that the caregivers may make the best decisions for his recovery and healing. May God lift the burden of worry from this family, and fill their hearts instead with His peace, faith and Grace.

He's so adorable, like a little man. So glad to hear he's better and hopefully coming home soon.... something to really be thankful for at this time.
As usual, give him a hug and kiss for us and we will keep him once again in our hearts.

Hi everyone....I just spoke with Nana. Logan's still one sick puppy, so please don't stop praying.

He HAS improved, by all means, and it IS due to your prayers!!!

He now has something called a "Gram Negative Infection". I do NOT have a clue what that is, so if there's any medical folk reading this, feel free to jump in. He's got the IV yet, and is on antibiotics.

So? That's all I know. Last night for awhile...he was in VERY serious trouble and to quote Nana, he's not out of the woods yet.

THANK YOU FOR PRAYING!!!!!!!
