From reader Karen — some good news!:
Just wanted to give you an update. Jadon started making urine again so did not need dialysis. Just this morning his mom sent me a message that he has opened his eyes and wiggled his fingers in her hand. His heart rate when I visited yesterday was down to the 140s and his blood pressure was up to normal. He still has a way to go, but this is good news and prayers are so appreciated! We are still praying for a miracle – that he completely recovers from this and from his leukemia. I figure if you’re going to ask God for a miracle, don’t hold back – ask for it all!
I have a second urgent prayer request from a young couple whose infant son was born last night in an emergency C-section.
Due to the umbilical cord separating, he began breathing blood and went into serious distress. The doctors seem to feel that his brain and heart will be alright, but his kidney (he only has one) appears to be shutting down — after an initial wee, there has been nothing. Doctors are very concerned and he is in serious condition. Please pray for Baby Michael David, and for his parents, who are understandably in distress.
Thank you, and I will keep you updated!
