UPDATED: Baby Sawyer ~ Urgent Prayers Needed

Saturday morning Sawyer update: Sawyer had a good night and is showing some improvement this morning. There are a couple other concerns…but for now, we are praising God for this good news and continuing to pray for sweet baby Sawyer’s FULL recovery! We serve a mighty and faithful God! Please keep praying!!!!

Yesterday I walked into the PICU to meet sweet baby Sawyer who was perched atop his little makeshift monkey-covered recliner-looking contraption on his hospital bed. Machines beeped and wires abounded. I looked around to see other babies to the right and left, listening to the sounds of the beeping and turned back to sweet Sawyer, drinking in the sight of this beautiful boy who has been the focus of countless prayers. I stroked his sweet chubby toes and prayed over him with his mama. It felt so good to finally lay eyes on him and put my arms around his beautiful mama…

Today, Sawyer had open heart surgery…

Please pray for baby Sawyer. He is the son of one of my dearest friends, Nicki and her husband, Brian. Sawyer was born last Friday and had open heart surgery this morning to repair a potentially fatal condition known as TGA (transposition of the great arteries). There were some complications, and they had to open him up and operate again. The next 72 hours are critical. Please get on your knees…please join me in crying out to our heavenly Father on his behalf. This sweet baby and his family need our prayers.

But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.

For I am the LORD, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…

Isaiah 43:1-3
