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!!!

Wow.

My wife was an ICN Nurse. Some of those tiny ones are incredibly plucky. Will pray.

Blessings to all concerned.

Our friends had a baby that weighed in at 1.2 lbs I think. They used grams and I had to convert..might be wrong on the exact weight. He'll turn 13 in November and is just perfect.

By the way, prayers certainly don't hurt.

LOL! Nope, they certainly don't, do they? And I thank you for yours.

Hi, Gramma,

First, prayers for Logan and the family.

My daughter also was born three months early. You learn to pray a lot staying in the NICU for a few months. Please let them know that there is so much the doctors and staff can do now. Also, tell them to take advantage of the support system the hospital provides. The picture you posted gave me all kinds of flashbacks. I have some pictures that look just like that one.

It will be a long road. They will learn to hate the sounds of the alarms going off. (Gee, I can laugh about it now.) And they will find strength they never knew they had. Tell them never give up no matter what other people may say. Never give up.

My angel, whom many said would not make it, is one of the happiest and most active children around. She tests developmentally at two years ahead of her age. And she is my inspiration.

Tell them to always touch the baby even though they can't hold him yet. They know.
