Happy updates on so many of my NICU friends. Baby Skylar now has cochlear implants in both ears. She can hear! Hurrah! Baby Addison just celebrated her first year--no signs of heart trouble at all after her birth AND her Mama is expecting a new sibling. Beautiful! Baby Dylan has no signs of needing surgery as a complication of his Down Syndrome. He slept through my daughter's baptism and he is totally yummy in every way.
Here is a new slate of babies who urgently need prayers. Baby Benjamin is in Children's Hospital recovery from surgery. Please pray this sweet kid (a relative of heart miracle guy Baby Joey) can avoid needing a liver transplant. Baby Fiona is a preemie who hopefully can get home to her family this week. Infant Henry just got released after a long stay at Children's Hospital in Philly. He's got bad ear infections and all types of trouble. Mr. Henry needs a clean, easy week so he can sleep, heal, and gain weight.
Ms Leila from "The Catholic Bubble" has all kinds of international orphans on her mind so lets just give her a blanket prayer for all of her "motherless chicks."
Finally, my dear son Alex has his First Confession tomorrow. Please pray for him.
