I don't have a lot of clear details to share right now, but Jude is struggling significantly today. I will post again when I can get better details after the doctors run a few tests to see what is bothering Jude.

Please pray for Jude.

Please pray for me because I can't be with him because I am sick.

Please pray for Brian as he is in the upstate working today.

Please pray for Nana Beth as she is with Jude at the NNICU for me. The docs can't share medical information with her so she must simply watch and love on Jude while they care for him.

Please pray that the Lord will give Jude comfort and rest instead of distress and discomfort. Please pray that the doctors can discover what is plaguing Jude right now.

I will post as soon as I can. For now here is a hymn that immediately came to mind after I got off the phone with the doctor:

I Need Thee Every Hour

I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord; 
 no tender voice like thine can peace afford. 
 I need thee, O I need thee; 
 every hour I need thee; 
 O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.

2. I need thee every hour; stay thou nearby; 
 temptations lose their power when thou art nigh. 

3. I need thee every hour, in joy or pain; 
 come quickly and abide, or life is vain. 

4. I need thee every hour; teach me thy will; 
 and thy rich promises in me fulfill. 

5. I need thee every hour, most Holy One; 
 O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son. 


  1. Praying in our Mighty Savior's name!

  2. Praying for baby Jude and for you to feel better!

  3. I was never as afraid of the common cold as when Samuel was in the ICU and I knew it would mean I couldn't be with him. How awful for you to know that your babe is struggling and you can't be with him. I will keep looking for more info on how Jude is doing... and praying in the meanwhile.

    Extra strength sent to you, CDH mama-warrior.
