For Baby Amelia again


#1

Baby Amelia, who was born at 25 1/2 weeks and 20 oz., is now a month old. She had a rough day today, as her heart tries to adjust to the greater workload following PDA surgery (a common surgery in extreme preemies…has to do with an extra blood vessel that is supposed to close on its own, but doesn’t.)

Her parents are very worried, and she is on 3 blood pressure medications, a ventilator, has a catheter, etc. Please pray that her heart starts working more efficiently, that her kidneys don’t fail, and that she soon turns a corner for the better.

Thank you all.

I will keep this baby and her family in my prayers.

Sincerely,

Lord please grant Your gentle mercy to Amelia and her parents.

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou amongst women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us sinners, now
and at the hour of our death. Amen

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible,
look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent,
but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is love and mercy itself

Update - as of about 11 pm CDT, Amelia had her best blood gases since her birth a month ago, stable blood pressure, and decent urine output. Thank God for all you wonderful prayer warriors!

There will still be quite a roller coaster ride for a couple of months, but those prayers sure are working.
