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!!!

LOL... sandbox indeed! But did you notice he's not "in" it? He never plays in the sand, but rather squats by the side of it and will play for almost an hour that way. As with everything in life, Logan does things his way.

Thanks for sharing his day with us........

Welcome to Logan's world octobersky! And thank you for his special birthday wish. He is a miracle in the making, and such a treasure to so many who have "adopted" him as one of their own, and walked this road with us. And heck, we still laugh and cry as we realize just what he's accomplished! And pray....we continue to pray...but now a prayer of thanksgiving for this little one who God has blessed us with. Now that he's older, the pictures and posts are further apart, but we'll keep updating everyone on his progress. So please be sure and visit with us. Nana

Thanks for the pictures, Kathy. Happy Birthday, Logan. I am honored to be on the the many, many FReepers to watch you grow. You are truly an inspiration and although I will probably never meet you, I will always have your pictures hanging around me and will treasure you.

And of course, always praying for TC.

Love,

Auntbee

He DOES love us and cares for each of us, SO much.

Yes, and sometimes I find that quite puzzling, lol!

Can you believe that on the way to the hospital, when I only knew that it was the tip of her little finger, that no joint was involved (so no function impaired), but didn't know which hand, for some reason --

I was worried about her wedding pictures (Left hand with ring pictures) and whether she'd be able to paint her fingernails?

It just seems that her life has been hard enough and left her with enough scars. (and, at heart, I'm still a girl, thinking of that wedding day)

God is good to us all and thank Him for our babies, our brides and grooms and our babies from them!

Omigod!
I thought Logan's birthday was July 28TH!
I definitely need a reality check. I want to give the Termite a big hug and kiss and wish him a happy belated birthday and after I return from my vacation in the UK on 8/15, there will be something special on its way to him.
Many kisses,
Auntie Stanz

Hey! Lookie what Nana sent me! The professional pics for Logan's 2nd Birthday! Not that ANY picture of Logan isn't professional. Can you believe this boy? Can you believe our LORD? Can you believe the shrinking doggie?

























Thank you Lord, thank you SO MUCH for giving Logan to his family and for all of us to share in this miracle called Logan. In Your Name, AMEN!


If you want off this ever-increasing Logan/Prayer list, please let me know via FRmail.
