Please pray for this little fellow! His name is Nate, and he's the son/grandson of friends of ours from church. Nate was born Wednesday, January 19th, but he wasn't due until late April! He's doing pretty well though. Nate's mom facebooked this evening that she was allowed to hold him for the first time and change his diaper today. What a moment that must have been for her. Here's a copy/paste from her facebook:

Nate's doing good, still on CPAP with 24% oxygen, had 1 heart rate drop last night but they were able to stimulate him and then he was fine. His blood GAS tests look good. He was stable enough through the night, so they were able to weigh him for the first time since he was born. He is now 1lb 15oz. He's lost some weight, but it was expected. He is a very busy strong little boy...he has pulled his IV out and also pulled out his CPAP 4 times. He's showing his strength (like his daddy) and steadily improving! Praise God!!!!!!

  1. Bless his heart. I will pray for him. Adele pulled out her NG tube twice. Luckily they didn't have to put it back in the second time. We are so thankful for the progress she has made!
