Two Prayer Requests

Neither one of us is feeling well tonight...please pray that whatever it is will quickly pass. We weren't able to spend much time with the baby tonight because we felt so bad. We think it is a short-lived bug that is going around our family at home or possibly something we ate - it came on quite suddenly. Please also pray for the baby - he is having a really hard time keeping formula down and he can't be released until he is doing better with it. He is a good eater as far as sucking etc. but a lot of it comes back up. We've changed formulas per the doctors orders but it hasn't improved very much (I know it can take time). Thanks again for your encouraging words, thoughts, and prayers. We feel so grateful and so loved. We really can't wait to introduce you to our little guy!

Maybe we should have a name poll to see if you can guess the correct name? :)

I'm so sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. That happened to me when we were in the hospital for little Hannah's adoption. I think the stress of it all just weakened us. I will pray for you to get strength. I'm happy to hear that things are looking up for you to bring him home.

I hope you feel better soon! Still praying for you. :) I hope the formula stays down & he can be released, poor little dude.

He may have reflux- very common cause of excessive spitting up in a newborn. It's not due to formula, but just an immature flap to the stomach. Easily tested at the hospital and easily treated, too. Can't hurt to ask.

I hope that tomorrow will be a day of rest for you all and that you are feeling better soon.

Praying God's arms around you and the little guy tonight!!!

Ugh! I am so sorry to hear that. What aweful timing! I sure hope it passes quickly. I'm guessing that you're missing getting to hold him =). I like ALL those names, so I'm excited to hear which one it is!!! Hope you sleep well tonight.

Holy cow! I hadn't checked in for a couple of days and I couldn't believe my eyes! I can't believe he is here and you are with him! How very exciting!

Wishing you both a speedy recovery!

We are praying - trust this goes away as suddenly as it came on. May the Lord give you His peace through this whole process. Hope to see ALL of you in a few weeks!
