Prayers Needed

I know I haven't updated on little Lukas since his birth and I am terribly sorry. The last two weeks have been a blur. I promise his birth story is coming very soon. In the meantime we need all your thoughts and prayers. I am updating from Lukas' bedside at Riley Hospital in Indianapolis. If there are typos please forgive me, as I am on my phone.

Lukas is in heart failure. His bicarbonate levels dropped from 30 to 19, his saturations are below the target range so he is now on oxygen, and he's working mighty hard to breath. His neonatology and cardiology team have started him on IV Lasix to attempt to be more aggressive until his operation. His open heart operation was originally scheduled for the 27th, but due to recent developments is being moved to next week.

If you can spare them, please send our baby boy some prayers. He needs all he can get right now!

  1. It's Liz (aka LIZLUVSTWW). I'm praying sweetie!!!!! Praying hard. Thinking of you and all your sweet boys, especially your youngest. May God wrap his arms around him and guide him safely into next week, and then onto a successful surgery.

    I'm also praying for you. I know this is the most challenging thing a mother could ever go through and I cannot fathom your thought/fears/ and prayers. I pray for peace and strength for you so that you can stay strong for lucas.

  5. First, congrats!! Second, but most importantly, I will be praying for the sweet boy. Praying for strength for the little guy, guidance for all his doctors and peace and endurance for you and your family. These doctors do amazing things on such little babies. And, don't forget to rest and keep yourself healthy! I came down with a viral infection and couldn't see mason for 4 days. You're important right now too!
