weekend update


I am happy to report that Coy had a good weekend...

He is now on a CPAP of 5 and his oxygen requirements have stayed in the 20's. His feeds were increased to 27cc's every 3 hours. As of tonight, he weighed 3lb2oz and is 15 inches long!!

Please continue to pray for Coy's eyes and heart. He will get weekly check ups on his eyes and he remains on the beta blocker for his irregular heartbeat. Pray that his eye disease will continue to regress and that new blood vessels will grow correctly. Pray that Coy will remain infection free.

Thanks for your prayers.

I just received an email from one of my friend's mothers whom I shared your story with. We are in Austin, Texas and we too are Coy's prayer warriors! Here is what she wrote:
"I think so often about Baby Coy and read his parents' journal entries also. Please let them know that they are in our prayers every day, that we are praying for their continued and increased faith, for their relationship, for complete healing for Precious Coy, and for us to one day meet the little baby we have never seen but feel as though we know."
We are praying morning, noon, and night for the Kolkhorst family.
