Skip to comments.Prayer Request for A Tiny Baby (Update in post #12850)
Posted on 08/11/2003 12:57:30 PM PDT by Bradís Gramma
If you will, please remember this tiny baby in your prayers. Hes 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.
Hes a real trooper and is fighting with all his little body can fight with. His Grandma said that hes 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, Ive read the emails daily from my friend. Ive known her for years, Ive heard her talking about her family for years but Ive got to tell you that Im SO impressed with how her children have all banded together in support. What an incredibly wonderful and loving family.
Father God, we lift up Logans little body to you. We pray that you can strengthen him hourly, daily, weekly, until hes 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!!!
I LOVE YOU MORE THAN WORDS CAN TELL.
You are soooooooo very special to us.......
Logan knows you love him.... we show him your picture and tell him so, then we hug and kiss him for you. Next year you can do all that yourself!
Our prayers and love....
"Punkin", Beth & Nana
Wow. Wow. wow wow wow wow.
Smiling with tears in my eyes.
Happy Birthday Logan! Gosh we love you so much.
Thank You God, for answering our prayers about Logan. Thank You for allowing us to witness one of Your miracles, right before our very eyes, and allowing us to recognize it for what it is - a miracle!!
He is such a cutie pie!
He's so adorable!
Thank you so much for the ping!
Happy Birthday Logan!
BTW, what's that dog made out of... KEVLAR???
OMIGOD!!! I missed Logan's birthday!!!! I'm soooo sorry; I've been so preoccupied lately. He's so beautiful!!!
Huh. DO NOT WORRY!
His gift is STILL sitting on my diningroom table, unwrapped, obviously not mailed.
(don't say nuthin' to Nana, OK?) (heheeeeeeee)
You BET! The Kevlar Doggie, Strikes AGAIN! :)
Thank You God!
Happy Birthday Logan - Big Hugs from Houston
Wow. Amen amen amen! Miracle is the only word that comes to mind. Thanks so much for the ping. What an absolutely adorable child Logan has become.
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!!
Thank you, BG, and amen. He's beautiful!
One of Nana's favorite ones, too. :)
Sweet L'il Texas Termite:
You've come SO far, and you've got SO many adventures to come.
Love and hugs ... you're SUCH a big happy boy.... AND you're SO cute!! HAVE A SWEET-SMELLIN', CAKE AND ICE CREAM SMEARIN' B I G DAY!!!
TC ==== How nice to "see" you ... I hope you're having a good day .. I'll check back on how you're doing.. but now, have real sweet dreams of those Termite Hugs you'll be getting real soon.
Grammie, is that the dog from the crib in the neo-natal unit? The huge dog that was bigger than Logan?
How can that be? Oh Dear Lord, what a Miracle You've given us...!
Yes, HiJinx. That is The Doggie. The one that was bigger than Logan.
I join you in absolute AWE over what God's done for this family...
Happy Birthday, Logan!!!
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!
We love you too, TC! And we're all pulling for you...get well in a hurry, you hear? ;-)
We all outta get together for Thanksgiving sometime, huh. HA!
Look at how he's growing! Bttt.
(sniff.....sniff......humpf........cough......clears throat)........WOW! I can't believe how big he is. And, all those teeth! And, that smile! And, he still has that skrinking pup. And, oh boy, he's got that look already. Look out Mom.
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. :)
Logan's getting to be quite a little man! :o)<p. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOGAN!
Happy Birthday, dear Logan! And that goes for your little dog, too. How well I remember when that great big doggie stood guard over you in the hospital....now you're taking care of him.
Such a handsome boy, such marvelous photos. Logan, keep sending pictures and good reports. Prayers for you and yours, little guy, may you all do well and thrive.
Oh my! Prayers for Logan's family - that they are able to decide WHICH precious picture of Logan to choose since they're all so perfect and adorable! ;-)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, LITTLE TT! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR SPECIAL MIRACLE BOY!!
...And a special prayer for strength and comfort and healing to you, El Roy. Hubby and I remember you in our daily prayers and I hope you can feel the blessings we wish for you, as well as for Faith.
I'd say just give up & make WALLPAPER outta the pictures.
That way, no matter WHERE you go....you can say "Aaawwwwwwww". Whatcha think, Nana? ;)
Hey, that's a great idea, BG! Plaster one whole room (I vote kitchen) with his adorable mug!
Personally, I think he's going to become a movie star. (But one of the GOOD ones!) That twinkle just shows up his spirit, doncha think?
Only the kitchen? Are you NUTZ?
The WHOLE HOUSE!!!!!! And when they run out of room INSIDE, I say do the OUTSIDE!
One can NEVER have too much of Logan! ;)
Color me NUTZ!
On second thought, I agree! That little sparkly face should be EVERYwhere!
Can't everyone tell we're both GRAMMA'S??
Nope. Har! Not at all! :)
The professional pictures are very very cute!!! It's a nice touch, having the doggie in the pictures. I remember when Logan and the doggie were nearly the same size! < :D
Nana I feel your tired feet as King Vanity has me running about too this summer, a good thang.
Our Dear Logan,
Happy 2nd Birthday lil man,
You are like a home made
You ROCK Son.
Love to your Mom,Dad and Nana and all others who are raising u up.
Thank God you have that job half done son. Your an Angel in a Human Body as King Vanity would say.
We are so ouuta here busy summer....Love you Logan
That Boy is Way bigger than this or any forum.
He is going to be Logan. LOL
What a gift.
Have not been around this summer but while we are here might as well say:
We LOVE YOU Pegita
OP and King Vanity .....passing through...
Looking forward to Winter.
When we are home.
Your referring to the Shrinking Dog right?
I love him too....
TC you are the apple of many eyes.
I am soooo happy You are where you are. God Love ya and your family.
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.
Glad to hear from you pard!
Call me anytime!
