Praying for Weight Gain

Well, Laura has put on one ounce in the last 2 weeks. While this is good news, the bad news is she has only put on that one ounce over all since the end of August. So much effort is put into getting her to eat, try to take a bottle, etc. each day. I would appreciate your prayers as it is hard for me to know she needs to put on weight before surgery and to not see it happening. Thanks for your prayers for us!

What a sweet sisters picture! I was wondering how the weigh in went Monday--we are continuing to pray and will be praying specifically for this!

I'll be praying specifically for chubby thighs and cheeks.

We'll be praying too - for 'rubber band wrists' as our Dreamer used to call them - she thought that maybe her little brother had rubber bands on his wrists because his arms were so fat she couldn't see them! I don't know if Laura is quite ready for them, but Milupa infant cereals were the start of that fun chubbiness for our babies!

Praying for you guys. It is both scary and exciting to be so much at the mercy of God, to know of wee Laura's needs -- and know you can do little to effect them. We pray that you can find rest in God and his covenant benevolence to you. We believe Laura will be safe for eternity; we only pray for her proximate safety now and through her time of surgery in November. Know that in addition to such as ourselves, a myriad of angels undoubtedly surround her -- looking down on you all (having been sent by our Lord!). Take care, Dick & Susan
