Look at this big boy sitting up on the couch! He is a real cutie!!
Grayson has been a little fussy here lately but other than that he is doing well. I did get an e-mail from his mommy saying that she may have a sitter for him...I need to check back with her to find out if this is going to work out. That would be a praise if it does...moms and dads need to get out!!
Please continue to pray for Grayson:
- that his shoulder will continue to heal and not be so painful
- that his reflux will not be so hard on him

from Nana (Carole) Emma has had a VERY bad night....I got here at 10:30 last evening and she was desating into the 20's and 30's. The doctors and nurses would work with her and she would get better for a while and then her stats would drop down again. We called Jessica about 3:30 this morning and she took Gracie to Bapa (David) and came on down. The doctors are continuing to work and try to help her...they have tried different types of ventilators and oscillators, and lots of different meds. She is now on the ventilator and Nitric. They have started antibiotics, and checked her blood gases just about hourly. The doctor came by right before I came out to update the carepage and said her last blood gases looked a little better. I would like to ask everyone to please intercede for Emma, Jessica and the rest of the family today and pray for God to give each one of us the strength to carry on. AGAIN, A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE DOCTORS, NURSES, RESPITORY THERAPISTS, AND ALL OF THE OTHER WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THE NICU. YOUR DEDICATION, SUPPORT, AND CARING ARE WONDERFUL. Please excuse any typos....it has been a long night. Thank you for your prayers, notes of encouragement, and all of the other wonderful outpourings of love you have given us.

Isn't he just the cutest little fellow?? He looks so squeezable!! Grayson is a "26 weeker" who started out weighing only 1 lb. 12ozs.!! Preemie babies quite often experience a lot of different complications...Grayson is no exception. Reflux has been an issue for Grayson and he and his family need prayers for his healing. There's a lot of "work" that goes into taking care of a baby with reflux...there are several different medications and usually a gazillion different formulas have to be tried. Grayson's mom is dedicated to taking excellent care of him but I know from experience that this lifestyle can be quite tiring...so prayers for Grayson's mom would be nice too!! He also has a hemangioma which can be very painful...pray also that this heals soon.
Grayson's Prayer List:
- Reflux situation alleviated
- Hemangioma healed
- Rest and Peace for Grayson's family
Here are some links about hemangiomas:
