Liam had a very nice and peaceful day today. He came back down again on his vent settings. He had his cardiac echo which shows that he still has his PDA. He is now too old for the endocin to work (I know- a preemie is too old?) so the next step is surgery. He can't have the ligation until his infection is gone so we are looking at next week.... Unless our God would see fit to close it spontaneously before we get close to that day!!! Liams heart valves looked good today on the echo which is great news because the infection he has can effect those.

Prayer

Please pray that his PDA would close on its own.

Please pray that the infection would go away.

Please pray that Liams next brain scan next Thursday would show no more damage!!

Just wanted to let you know that we are praying for you, your family and your little one in NICU.

I ran across your story on the forums at Twins Mag website. We are also a homeschooling family, expecting twins, living at Ft Bragg/Fayetteville, NC.

Just wanted to drop a note and let you know that while we are strangers to you, our family is praying for your family.

Merry Christmas, Kathryn M.

John 15:16 ~ You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go out and bear fruit-fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.

Father God, we thank you for your love, your grace, and your mercy. We continue to lift up Liam McIntosh to you. We know you have a plan, O Lord. You are in control,Sweet Jesus, you see the big picture. We pray that you continue to guide those caring for Liam in the hospital. Heal Liam; take away his infection and close his PDA, Lord, in Jesus name. Amen!
