A Bump in the Road

This will be a short post tonight, but again I need you to pray.
Grayson had a set back during the night last night and is back on some oxygen. The doctor and all the nurses are still very encouraging, but when its your baby in the NICU, its just plain old SCARY.
He wanted me to tell you that he knows the oxygen on his face is not CUTE...and he is planning to pull it out tonight...
(he has already tried to tonight when I was rocking him)!
He also told me (all my grandsons have talked to me from birth!Ha) that he is not pleased with the way they combed his hair today.
I told him he not only had lots of people praying for him, but he also had a fan club and he just smiled.
We are still hoping and praying that later this week he will be healthy enough to come home.
His Mom and Dad had thought it was going to be tomorrow, so they have had an emotional day.
Thank you so much for your prayers and your concern.

I'll continue to pray.

What a precious baby he is, and so sweet of him to talk to you. ;)

I pray that baby Grayson will make a full recovory and come home with his family very soon. Please tell him that it wouldn't matter if his hair wasn't even combed that he would still be one handsome dude!!

I'm praying for little Grayson and all of his family.He may need to stay in NICU longer, and that's OK, because he'll grow stronger every day. He's a lucky little guy to be surrounded by so much love and care. His hair is gorgeous!

Oh Teresa, I'm so sorry it was such an emotional day for your family, especially Graysons mom and dad hoping they'd be able to bring him home! That rips at my heart! Your family and this precious angel are in my prayers; already an automatic prayer 'lift'.

I enjoyed reading your post, typing it from Graysons own 'words' about his breathing mask, and his combed hair...LOL...you've got such the talent and sweet spirit gift to deliver your message in words! So cute! Love it. Keep your chin up! Things will get better! God is good!

Lynne said...

Hopefully this is just a minor setback and Grayson will be coming home with his parents soon. Keeping him in my thoughts.

I'm sorry he had a little setback. I hope he bounces back quickly and gets to go home soon!!

Melinda said...

Teresa,

I apologize, as I haven't been over here in a while (I'm going to "follow" you, so I can keep up!). I didn't know about Grayson, so I'll definitely be praying! Thanks for keeping me in the loop.

Love to you this day,
Melinda

Grayson is adorable. Seriously, adorable!

Three of my grandchildren are here with us this week so my computer time has been limited, but I sneak quick visits to see what's happening.

My prayer today is that he will make quick improvements so he can be home with his family.

Hugs!
Kat

Darn-double-darn.

I was hoping the hospital stays were over... but better to be on top of it and aware than not. I am glad that is the case for Grayson.

What an adorable little guy... even with oxygen.

Your family especially Grayson is in my prayers.

Mom2Valerie said...

I understand (from experience) the emotions that come with having a baby in the NICU...and wondering each day if you will REALLY get to bring your sweet baby home. Praying for your sweet little grandson and his parents...and hoping he can go home REALLY soon.

Praying for your precious Grayson.
~Hugs and blessings to you dear one.

grammy said...

I just said a prayer (o: This is so hard for all of you I am sure. I remember how my mother use to worry about my kids and I didn't really get it. Now I do!! I know God doesn't want us to 'worry'... I tell myself that in the middle of the night and say a prayer then release it to him (or I just might go crazy). I certainly don't mean to trivialize what you are going through. I think it is so great to have people praying.

monica said...

Keeping postive thoughts for your grandson! He is just so precious!

sunnyme said...

I'll continue to pray! Hope this little guy gets well soon to see his home and enjoy his family.
I'll send all my prayers.

Kimberly said...

Hi Teresa!

Grayson is adorable! Love the pictures. I remember when my Andrew was in the NICU b/c he couldn't breathe after my c-section. It was scary but God healed and delivered him and he will be turning five in November!

Praying and your blog is adorable!

Keeping your precious grandson in prayer.

Picket said...

Oh that sweet little dumpling...girl I agree with you in prayer according to the word of God that minute by minute and hour by hour that baby strengthens and that it even amazes the doctors as God breaths on that baby and makes him whole...may every cell and fiber of his little being be healed and let him go home with his loving family...when having done all my friend...stand...just stand...God will move! Take care sweetie.

Oh my word, that is a GOOD LOOKING BABY! wow, he's cute.

I know how horrible it is to have your baby in the NICU. Praise for NICUs, and prayers he is home where he belongs very quickly and this will all soon just be a bittersweet memory.
