Dec. 3, 2007

PRAISE:

Liam's PDA is closed!!! It's wonderful news because it means no more of the medicine and the pressures in his lungs could improve.

They did a cranial scan today and his brain showed no signs of bleeding!

The Drs do not believe he is having seizures. They continue a maintenance dose of an anti-seizure medication just in case but it seems to be agitation on Liams part and not seizures.

I got to feel like his mommy again by changing a poopy diaper and putting on lotion!

His weight is up to 1 lb 12 oz.

And for my precious family in Christ gives me so much love and support I get overwhelmed. Thank you Mary'beth for the pager!

Prayer:

That Liam would continue to do well on his ventilator and that his lungs would progress well in his treatments.

That Liam would surpass expectations for a micro-preemie.

That my faith, although rocked hard this week, would stay firm in Christ and on His word.

That is terrific news! Noah's PDA didn't close until he was 35 weeks. I don't know if you remember that he spent a month in NICU, but they told us 2 months. So we did quite a bit of what you are doing. I told Shawn that we have some preemie clothes. So when you need some to maintain body temperature, just let us know. You and your family are constantly in our prayers. Your situation has brought back some good memories. Yes they are good even if they don't seem that way right now. So if you need someone to talk with, please feel free to call me at 638-3147.

Love,
Ashley
