Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Would You Pray For Baby Eli Again?



Back in September I told you about Baby Eli who was born while I was in Colorado in late September. Then in early October I came back and told you that Eli was born without a thyroid gland and asked you to pray for him. As you can see from the picture above he has done just great. His sweet mama has just started a blog and some of your have been reading the Colorado Belle. Well today Baby Eli is in the hospital. Yesterday he slept all day long and we all know babies don't sleep all day long unless they're sick. His eyes are red and runny and his nose is stopped up so his mama took him to the doctor. They promptly put him in the hospital and said he has RSV and bronchitis. I know his parents are frantic because I know babies can scare us to death, and especially first babies. Would you please say a prayer for Eli? And for his parents?

I remember when my baby was in the hospital so young, such a horrible feeling. Please tell them I am praying hard for Eli, his phsicians and other caregivers... and of course, for Mom and Dad. Thanks for your comment on my Prince Charming story, it was good for me writing it - a reminder of what a wonderful man he is, and all the reasons I fell in love with him :-)

I will certainly pray for Little Elie! I am familiar with RSV in children. My grandson, Tyler, had it twice, and was hospitalized both times, it was so scary. I pray he will overcome this horrible illness and be back to normal very soon. I am proud they hospitalized him immediately, it is the best thing under the circumstances.
