Update On Our Baby

Job in Malaysia I want to thank everyone for all the prayers for our sweet little baby. It is a difficult time for our family and we are grateful for all the thoughts and prayers. We are just taking it one day at a time.

The baby seems to be doing okay for now. He is a fighter, but he has a long road ahead, as does his parents (my nephew and his girlfriend) and all of our families. We will do all we can do and surround this child with our love and support and pray that God stays close and keeps a merciful hand on our little boy.

Please continue to keep our baby and his parents in your thoughts and prayers. Please pray for the doctors and nurses taking care of him. I truly believe in the power of prayer, as I know many of you do! It is in God's hands.

Thank you so much for your support and kindness to me and my family. Thank you for showing so much love and concern for this precious little boy!

(*Note - this precious picture is of our baby - it is his sweet little hand*)

Huckdoll said...

I think that this little guy will do well. He's got so much love and prayers going his way, mine included. I'm sorry to hear he had an early start at life, it was one of my worst fears while pregnant with twins.

Thank you for coming by and introducing yourself on my blog today, I will see you soon. ((HUGS))

That is the hand of a little boy who is a fighter and who WILL grow to be big and strong. That is such a beautiful picture of a beautiful hand. And it is my opinion that there is nothing more powerful that a group of people all praying for the same thing. I agree wholeheartedly with the previous commenter who said that God is still in the business of Miracles. That, He is...

Have a wonderful day, Kellan Renee!

Amanda said...

I was wondering whether that was the baby's hand. Its so small yet invokes so much love and support from everyone.

I just stumbled across your blogg and I am an NICU nurse in a different state than texas. I am always amazed when doing my job with these tiny little gifts from god, that god's hand and the prayers of others are felt and I am able to follow the promptings of the holy spirit to bring to pass gods work of healing and helping the suffering of these precious and priceless gifts. It warms my heart to know that you and hundreds of others are praying for not only the baby but the nurses and doctors. If you never hear it from the nurses that are taking care of your nephew, I personally want to thank you for your prayers in helping us as nurses have the guiding help of the god in whom created us all. Thanks a million.

Bavani said...

What a precious photo - of hope.
I read that touch is so important too - I hope that his parents (especially his mother) are able to touch him often - babies always recognise their mother's touch.
I just said a prayer for him.

KEEP BELIEVING (see that motto comes in handy all throughout life)

andrea j said...

So tiny! I have heard of several babies born at only 1 lb and make it through. Though it will be a long, bumpy road in the NICU...so true that it's in God's hands.

Lisa said...

You always have such a positive outlook. I'm sure the rest of your family is just as wonderful. Your sweet baby is in people's prayers all across the country. Stay strong!!!
