Prayer Please

Just a short update to ask for prayers. Madelyn had been weened to a 1/16th of a liter of Oxygen as of this morning when I went to see her at 3am. I held her from 3-5am and fed her from 5-5:30am. I noticed she started breathing heavily and seemed to be stressed out when she was trying to feed, so we decided to finish feeding her with the syringe. I held her until about 6:15am and her respirations seemed to have "recovered" from the stress of eating. She syringe fed again around 8am and showed some of the same signs but not as much as before. At about 9 am her respirations sky rocketed, she began retracting again with each breath she took and was ultimately put back on 2 liters of oxygen. After almost 2 hours, her respirations are starting to come down. She is not maintaining her temperature very well so they have her under the heat lamp. To help with the breathing, they have placed her on her side. Luke and I are just asking for your prayers. We have been so overwhelmed by all that have prayed for her this far and are asking that you continue.

We will give you an update soon.


  1. Kat.. We are praying so much... Hang in there. Keep telling her you love her. Hold her and touch and kiss her as much as you can.. She is precious

  2. Hi Katheryn, I am a friend of Courtney Gainer's. She just shared with me ya'lls story and I wanted to tell you that I will also be praying for all three of you.

    God Bless you. May His GLORY fill your lives.
