Hi girls, please can you all say a prayer for my wee nephew. My sister took him into hospital on Christmas morning as we was a funny colour, and not breathing properly, the little mite has pnemonia (sp?)
Baby C is only seven weeks old and was born 7 weeks premature, but he was doing great, he is now in the ICU, and has got several different tests done. My poor sister, everything happens to her, and the family is in bits, but trying to keep positive.
They took him off the ventilator yesterday, but he went downhill so had to be put back on it again. The docs said he has not got any worse, but not got any better either, so they are going to change his anti-biotics to see if that will make any difference. Tomorrow they will also have the results back from the lumber test, and they are also going to do a brain scan to see if there was any damage, when he stopped breathing on christmas morning, so tomorrow we should have more news.
Wee C got christened yesterday, it was very upsetting, but at the same time my sis is glad that he has been christened. It was so hard seeing a little newborn with all wires, and machines, but we know that it is only helping him get better.
Sorry for asking, but prayers for the wee man would be very much appreciated.
Thank you all very much and please pray to God that everything will be ok.December 29, 2008 at 9:46 am #67964GismoMember

Will keep him in my prayersDecember 30, 2008 at 10:20 am #67973trixiebellParticipant
thanks girls so much.
Libby prayers said for your cousin, hope they will get well soon xxx
Well there was no change really in him yesterday, the docs changed his anti biotics so we will see if that will make a difference.
My sis’s hubby was in to see him last night, and gave him a wee kiss on the forehead, and he moved his wee toes, it was like he was letting his daddy know he knew he was there.
The nurses said he could be like this for up to 2 weeks in the ICU, so all we can do is keep praying for the little man.
I will let you know if there is any news.
