Update on Brayden

I first want to thank you all for your prayers. We really, really need them right now. Brayden was taken by Angel One helicopter to Little Rock yesterday at one am. I checked myself out of the hospital after being there 24 hours post birth and we were able to tell him goodbye and follow by car. We arrived at 4:30am yesterday.

Brayden is in critical care at the NICU of the Children's Hospital. We just got a call this morning that he is doing a little worse after having a fairly good yesterday. We don't know what to think or what to do at this point. The doctors are doing everything they can. His condition is calledf PPHN which basically means pulminary hypertension.

Please, please continue to pray for our little boy. He is fighting soooo hard.

So praying for you and that sweet baby!

Amanda said...

Jenna, my daughter was born at 26 weeks and spent 87 days in the NICU. It's SO unbelievably hard not being able to hold your baby in your arms and have them at home with you. I am so sorry you are having to go through this difficult time. I am glad you have family around to help and support you. Know that He is with you and you, Brayden and Chris are surrounded in prayer. May you feel His peace and comfort and His guidance of the NICU team.
