  • Prayer for my just born son

    Hello everyone.

    This has been quite a week. My wife went into labor very early Monday morning, five weeks early. My son was born on Nov. 24 at 9:21 am via C-Section. His vitals weren't handling the contractions, so we had to go the surgery route.

    We've known for a while that my son has a diaphragmatic hernia. I started a post weeks ago about it here.

    On Tuesday, they decided to put him on the ECMO machine at St. Vincent's children's hospital. It kind of acts like a heart/lung bypass machine, because it takes his blood out, oxygenates it and removes anything they have to, and puts it back in his body. He's been doing well on that machine now for going on four days.

    We're very hopeful that he will pull through this. He has a number of surgeries ahead of him, and will be in the hospital for a while, but for right now he's hanging in there.

    Last Sunday, the day before my wife went into labor, we talked to the family pastor at the church that we started going to recently. When we told him about our son's medical condition, he said that he got a chill. There's a family that went through this same thing five years ago, and the little girl survived. She's kind of the church's miricle baby, because she was in very bad shape when she was born, and had to be in the hospital for seven months. Later that morning, we were introduced to the mom by the pastor, and started talking to her. After a minute, her little girl Kestin came running up, and I got a chill. I reconigzed the girl, because she was featured in a magazine article at the hospital. I read it while waiting to talk to the surgeon a couple of months ago, and that article gave me a lot of hope. Once again, this is just another reason why God wants us at this church.

    My wife and I have never been baptizied. We're going to talk to the pastor about it this Sunday.

    If anyone wants to see some picutres of our son, we've set up a page at a website called CaringBridge. My wife is posting a journal there for friends and family to read, and you can also post messages to us.

    I would just like to ask everyone to keep us in your prayers. I will leave mine here.

    Thank you for the blessing of my son Alex. He is a miricle child, and has already done more for me than I thought possible. He's made me a better husband, a better man, and most importantly has brought me to you. Thank you Lord for this blessing.
    Lord, I ask that you place your healing touch on my son so that he can grow strong. Please give him strength so he can make it through these weeks in intensive care, and so he can be strong for the surgeries that he will have.
    Lord, thank you for the comfort and the strength that you have given Jill and I. We know that You are here for us through all of us.

    In Jesus's name we pray, Amen.

    "People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated?" - D A Carson

        Father, You were there when Alex was being created in the womb. You know every detail of his being. Lord, I ask that Alex be able to live a long life that he may grow to know You and Your Son Jesus Christ, and give his precious life as a testimony to Your greatness.
        Thank You Father. It's in You and You alone we trust.
        In Jesus Name, amen

                      Congratulations on the birth of your much loved and very wanted son; so sorry he needs ECMO and you cannot give him a cuddle yet.

                      Praying that God continues to hold you all safe in his hands and that his healing touch blesses Alex.
