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!!!

I pray to GOD that this little guy will make it and have a wonderful life. I knew a lady from a past job that had a girl that was 1lb 12oz. She was very protective of her but finally brought her into our work for everyone to see when she was 1 year old. She was perfectly healthy. Prayers that Logan's story will be the same.

FWIW Brad's Gramma, our managers wife gave birth to their son at 28 weeks, and while it was a struggle for a while, he is now a happy & health two year old.

....Prayers to this little fighter and his loving family.

"Prayer bump for Logan. (Did I understand correctly that he's lost weight?) "

All babies lose a little weight after they are born. It's good if they can regain it within a couple weeks after they are born. I'm sure it's a little different though when they are born this young. I think they usually eat with a feeding tube rather than being nursed or bottle fed. Him kicking and reacting to mommy sounds like he's got strength!

Oh gosh, what a peanut! Definitely in our prayers. What a precious little gem.

Prayer sent and God bless this little baby. My first daughter was 11 weeks early at 1 lb 14 oz and is now 15 and 5'7" and full of spit and vinegar. There is a lot of hope here.

Boy, that brings back memories. I had twin boys born at 24 weeks. My firstborn, Aaron, weighed 1 lb 4 ozs and my second, Ryan, weighed 15.5 ozs at birth. Aaron didn't make it and went to be with the Lord 5 days after his birth. Ryan is now 4 years old and is all boy. He has had little physical effects from being so early and he will be starting pre-k in a few weeks (man, time fly's). The stay in the NICU is long, but there is an end to the tunnel, and by God's power and grace, these little little ones can do well. He is in control.

Peace.
