Redngold, I'm sure the young'n is in good hands. I'm 2-for-2 having kids in NICU, so I know the feeling!!! We spent days on end in there with both kids. Devin was born in shock with the cord around neck. They had to bag him for several minutes until they finally revived him. He spend a few weeks in NICU weening him off of oxygen. When Mollie was born, we had a subdural hemotoma. Her brain was bleeding. She had 7 seizures on her birthday. When she seized, she went into respiratory arrest and they had to revive her each time. She spent a while in there as well. But both turned out wonderfully. Babies are amazing, and so are NICU staffers!!! God Bless!!!

Elizabeth I truly admire you for putting out your request here. There are many who may feel that "we" would look at them in an unusual way. But not me. I want you to know that I have asked our Lord for help for Erika. This precious little package needs help from all she can receive it from. I will continue to pray for her, please let us know her progress.
I did check out your other info and once again I say I am quite inpressed. The only question I have is what denomination are you a part of? Is it back with the Lutheran Church(me and my family are Missouri Synod) or someone else? Just curious.

My prayers are with Janine, Gregg and (most of all) Erika.
I, too, am a parent of an early-arrival NICU-veteran, and now Tomster the monster is 6 years old and good (played hockey tonight). And I'll second JetService's comments- the NICU people are a special breed, caring with skill and compassion for the children, and forthe parents.
With a family's love, and the prayers of many, there's no limit. God bless.

Will do. I know somebody who had her son at about the same time during her pregnancy because his umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck and she had to have a C-section. She is now mother to a healthy child as I'm sure your cousin will be.

RednGold; I pray that the baby will recover and years from now she'll thank god greatly for the miracle. Her family wil be the proud parents and grandparents of a girl who will bring a lifetime of joy. God bless them all.

If you belive that praying to a god will help out the premature kid, why wouldn't that same god prevent that little kid from being born premature in the first place? Looks like his mind is made up if you asked me.

YKA -- God's miracles come in many different ways. It is a miracle that Erika was born. She was preceded by two stillborn brothers. I thank God for the miracle of life in whatever form it has been given.
