Please forgive me if I've double pinged you...let me know & I'll go in and correct it. The first part of this is the first email I got from Logan'sGrandma this morning.

Logan continues to do well. He remains stable at this time and is being aided only by the oxygen enforced isolette which is astounding considering his age and development. It is only by the prayers that continue for him, that Logan continues to gain strength...... and by the "heart and fight" of this tiny little infant. He is a daily reminder of the power of God and that miracles do indeed happen.

The hospital staff in the NICU, while thrilled, keep telling us that he can and probably will have some bad days ahead... but then again, Logan just might fool them. He sure has up until this time !!!

And this, dear Freepers....is the second one this morning from Grandma.

I just finished re-reading all of the responses AGAIN.... and PLEASE extend our famlies profund thanks to all. Those who have been in our situation, know what it means to have support and prayers offered for them. Those who haven't, are surely angels themselves to care so deeply for a little infant they don't know. While I'm not a "Freeper", I have read of the others prayer request and offer a prayer for those special intentions, as well as a prayer for all of the wonderful people who take time to care, pray for us, .... my prayer of thanks is offered to God for and to all.

I would like to add that the staff at the hospital where Logan is surpasses any and all of my expectations. You know my work history ,(BG) I have come into contact with many medical situations as a part of that. But I have NEVER seen more caring, efficient, and competent people anywhere. The nurses that are assigned to Logan are so kind and gentle with him and with his mom.

They not only calm this tiny being, but help her to remain calm also. They have fully disclosed every situation to her and Logan's dad, and rejoice with them when he is doing well. As an example, there is no "tape pulling".... it is first soaked to soften it, and then a minute about of oil is applied before removing any tape. He doesn't have a mark on his tiny body where tape has been pulled. I tell you this because it is the type of care he is receiving.

When Logan entered the NICU.... there were 64 infants in the unit and 45 nurses, plus the doctors assigned to the unit. They almost have one on one care if need be. Logan has been on one on one since the moment he arrived. In fact, in the delivery suite, there were 24 people from NICU to receive him.

Logan's mom is an amazing young woman.... not because she's my daughter, but because of the way she has handled all of this. She devotes her day to being with him when the visiting hours allow and it's wonderful to see this tiny infant respond to his mommy. Her face has the look of love that is only placed by deep abiding love and faith from the gift of God she has been honored with.

As of this morning, he continues to do well and is being given more and more of his mommy's milk via the feeding tube. His body temperature is great and he's having less and less of the breathing problems he experienced at first. He doesn't go into the anxiety attacks when being turned as often either.

Friday, he will be 28 weeks mature... and 3 weeks born. Our hope for him continues to soar!

I am attaching a new picture of the little one. If you can, it will be a replacement or an update to his "page" showing him as he now looks.

Please extend my most greatful thanks to all and ask that they continue their prayers for Logan.

God bless each and every one of you....


Logan, Getting His Beauty Rest!

Tell your daughter how we are still praying for her - AND tell her that she is making a great choice in breast-feeding Logan. Mother's milk appears to help stave off necrosis in the gut, a major problem for preemies! It also gives him the antibodies he needs to fight off infections better... a good choice. Tell her it's really hard to keep up the pumping, but it's all worth it, as much as she can give!
