Prayers please!!!

Our little man had another rough day....

Seems that Coy's lungs remain "wet" as the doctors say. He is on diuretics and steroids, but so far, he isn't responding as well as he did last time. Please continue to pray for Coy's lungs (he was on about 70% O2 all day)---that he can excrete the fluid sitting on his lungs so he can breathe easier; pray that his oxygen requirement is lowered; pray that his blood gases improve...

We know Jesus took up our infirmities and carried our disease--we believe this. We know our saviour is the mighty healer; we know our Lord can do things we are not capable of, things we cannot even comprehend..

We just talked to Coy's night nurse who said there is indicators that he has another infection--his CBC & CRP were abnormal--so here goes the antibiotics again....
Pray that this infection will go away soon! Pray for Coy to remain comfortable as he is poked and prodded on for all the blood cultures, IVs, etc...
We are so thankful for Coy's awesome doctor, Dr. Lopez, and the nurse practioners who cover him...thankful that Dr. Lopez thinks about Coy all the time, thinks about what else she can do to help him get out of the NICU, thankful for her kindess and compassion she has for families and all of our questions, thankful she is constantly trying to cure him, she cares so much which makes it easier for us to sleep at night..
We are also so thankful for Coy's primary nurses...they are amazing and are so awesome to put up with us and all of our constant visitors and questions!!

We need your prayers; we need all of you prayer warriors to pray to our Lord and Savior on behalf of Coy; we love you for it...
  • pray against infection!! pray that Coy is cured of the infection and it is easily treated by the antibiotics!
  • pray for Coy's lungs ---that he is able to breathe easier and is able to rest comfortably
  • pray that Coy continues to digest all his milk
  • pray the Coy grows mighty and strong
  • pray for Chris & I as we grow weary; pray for our strength; pray for our families

Dear Chris and Ann Marie,
We are praying for you and for Coy. I know these ups and downs are frustrating and so hard on him and you. I know you are afraid. Who wouldn't be? But, remember what you said in one of your recent blogs. Your pastor said in his sermon that there are two paths we can take - faith and fear - and whichever one we take leads us farther from the other. Those words are so profound - simple and true. You really touched me with them. You really made me think. I know it's hard, but stay faithful and the fear will diminish. God is with you and Coy and there truly is a wall of prayer around him.
Love,
Reyne and the Ruchti's

Chris and Ann Marie,

Hang in there, I can imagine you are weary by now, I very much feel your pain... We will keep praying!!! I wish Coy would continue on that upward path to health! When Jaxson was in the NICU he took a big step back as well, and it really threw me for a loop emotionally. He was off the oxygen for a month, was doing well, and then all of a sudden his O2 levels plummeted and the As and Bs came back with a vengence. It is so hard to see that, to see your little guy fighting to breathe. I pray with all my heart that little Coy's lungs will heal and grow, and he can get off that vent. He is such a precious little guy... I love the picture of him with his eyes open! So sweet!!! Hang in there, we think about you every day and pray that Coy continues to improve!

Love, Ann Shawn, and Jaxson

Dear Chris and Ann Marie
We pray a lot for Coy and for you guys. Ups and downs I know are pretty stressful but keep hanging in there... Baby Coy can feel your emotions and what he really needs from you guys is hope and streight. Keep it up, our daily prayers are with you.
