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!!!

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.

What is wrong with my monitor?? It's all blurry! Oh my gosh, I just LOVE that boy. I can't see his pictures w/o crying and laughing at the same time. Look at his expressions. He is a little dreamboat. Love the "reading" picture where his face seems to say "Who are we kidding here?" And who is shrinking that dog? ROFL!!

Let's see now, your post is #11,253. That must mean that Logan has at least 5000 "aunties" and "uncles" that have been watching and praying for him these past two years.

Happy Birthday, Logan!!!

It is amazing and so heartwarming to see the pictures of that adorable smiling face. He's growing up so quickly!

It doesn't seem long ago at all that we were praying for a tiny fighter with tubes in his little nose.

What a miracle our Logan is!

Oh Geeez, how cute. How darned cute! I cannot get over the personality that shines through on this childs face. He is happy, fun, has that mischievous twinkle in his eye and is loved as evidenced by his face.

Happy Birthday Logan. Two years old. And...I LOVE how cute he looks in his outfit and his little white shoes. No, can't believe this boy and where he has come to.

Can't beat our Lord can ya? Too bad others don't. They are sure missing out on a lot. :) Thanks for the photos they are cool and will be printed out. :)

Hello, folks.

To update my condition, I'll be starting the chemical treatments on August 8.
This is not the standard FDA approved chemical, Interluken II. I looked at this drug and decided I'd rather take my chances with the experimental drugs. They have less side effects and better test results.
The total length of these trials varies, but I'm hoping for less than a year.
I'm not supposed to be as sick with these treatments as with Interluken, but everyone responds differently.

Please hang with me, folks. Our prayers will get me through this.
I appreciate so much what you have done.

God bless you, dear friends.
