Please pray for the baby!

post #1 of 105
Thread Starter 
My son and his wife had to take the new baby to Children's Hospital this morning. He was throwing up a yellow substance. I'm very concerned because the doctor is a pediatrician and sent them past 8-10 hospitals to the hospital where transplants and miraculous procedures are done. That doesn't mean he will need that, but we don't know why he sent them to Pittsburgh. They live near the mountains- at least 35 miles from Children's. Please pray for him. He was born on 9/3 and he was only 5 lbs. 7 oz.

Jeanie, good thoughts for the baby. It is SOOOO scary, when they get sick.
post #5 of 105
Jeanie of course the baby will be in my prayers!
The Dr. probably sent them to Childrens, as they are the best around! This way, if the little one needs more care, all the necessary persons and equipment are already there!
What is his name again?
....for the baby

Jeanie, I am so sorry to hear this, and I hope there is nothing seriously wrong with the baby. I agree with Debra Myers, he was probably sent to Children's Hospital as a precautionary measure. I am sending plenty of prayers and positive healing energy toward the baby and his parents.
( The rest of the family is included too.)

They initially thought the baby's intestines were strangulated, but those tests were negative. His white count is up, so there is an infection. Yesterday he was having difficulty breathing, but this morning his breathing is ok. He is on intravenous antibiotics for infection. The big concern right now is that the spinal tap could not rule out meningitis. It was inconclusive, so there will be a culture done, and we will know the results in two days. He had a bottle last night and this morning. Please continue your prayers. It's so appreciated.

When we see a newborn, we feel pretty much in aw. But when a little one is ill we feel powerless. Please know whoever you see as your creature will oversee the needs of the baby.Prayers are sent every which way for the baby, his parents and of course you~

The only update I have is that one of the doctors has asked that he be given pedialite for the afternoon hours-instead of milk. I assume he is worried about his electrolytes and a possibility of dehydration. Please know how much I appreciate your prayers and continue. The Lord likes to be pestered (prayed to and petitioned), and we know how much He loves His children. If I hear anything important, I will certainly let you know. You are now my prayer circle because I can't get out. I know that our pastor has been informed, and I have been on the phone asking other friends to pray. Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh is one of the top transplant hospitals in the country, and people come from all over the world to take advantage of their skills. Knowing that little Taylor is there is a comfort.

Thanks for telling us what information you have...I have to go offline and feed the baby, but I will check back later today or tonight to see if there is anymore news!!

Not knowing anything is the worst. Taylor is in excellent care, hopefully that can bring some comfort. Of course, Jeanie, we will keep the prayers, meditations, and energy flowing to Taylor and all of your family.
