Keep Praying!!!!!!!

I want to thank the army of God for continuing to pray on Little Bug's behalf. Today lended a small bit of info, but not enough to be conclusive. When Connor went in for his first procedure, they were able to see that his tummy surgery, the Nissen, has slipped and isn't working as it should. They couldn't conclude from what they saw that it is reflux, but all roads lead to that destination. They have suggested a nuclear medicine test that will most likely, be done tomorrow. Connor also needed to go into the OR again today to receive a central IV access line. The docs felt that not having IV access to him when he goes into his episodes was dangerous and so they felt that this was the right decision. I must say that the central line makes me nervous because it is a real place for infections to grow. However, I must trust that our prayers for wisdom are being answered and the docs do know best. When We kissed Little Bug goodbye at the entrance to the OR my heart already ached for his return. After about an hour and a half they called and said they were able to get the line, but they did have to put the ventulator back in. Because of Connor's poor respitory status they had to put the breathing tube in for additional support. Since he will remain intibated for a couple of days, the docs have suggested that we go ahead and do the MRI and CT scan that have been talked about for a while. Once again, I have to trust that this is an answer to all of our prayers and that wisdom is being exhibited on the side of the docs. Our prayer is that tomorrow will be another day of fresh wind and clear revelation for a plan for Little Bug.

Oh, by the way, Herman jumped out from underneath Little Bug's blanket this evening and he told me that Connor was a very brave boy in the OR. He said there was singing and peace that filled the room when I was absent from him. Oh how glad I am that Herman is a constant presence with Little Bug.

Thank you again for your prayers. Keep praying for more answers to come our way!!!!!

Lovebug Hugs,
Lori

PS ~ Thanks for coming today Mom R. It was nice to have your company during the many hours of waiting.

Little Bug-

Wow! It sounds like you had a very busy day. I'm glad Herman was with you. You are a precious little piece of heaven Connor!

I know that it was your prayer day today but if it's all right with you I'm going to make it Connor's prayer WEEK at my house.

Tell momma that she is one GREAT lady! You are very blessed to have her and daddy as your parents. Jesus loves you very, very, very much. Hugs and kisses sweet one.

We're still here. Just had to leave town there for a while, but now we're back and made sure to quickly check in on Little Bugs status. We've been praying throughout the day, and will continue to do so.
Just remember, you are SOOOOoooo not alone. Your entire family is submerged in prayer. :) Our hearts are with you tonight. God bless you, and may He hold you all so very tight as you continue through this.
With all our love,
Your family in Christ,

Lori,
Our hearts and prayers are with you each and every day!
You were the first person I thought of on Mother's Day. I prayed you would be so blessed on your very first one. You articulated your love so beautifully in your letter to Connor. He will have all your wonderful words on paper to look at and remember for the rest of his life.
Thanks for your vulnerability on this blog site! You share your heart and depth with countless people. You are truly an inspiration!

Love and prayers and strength from the Almighty One today!

JoAnn Andro and family

Lori, Randy & Connor,

We are rejoicing that there was a little light shown on Connor's situation. Our prayers were with you on and ongoing basis throughout the day yesterday. They continue today. We hope that the MRI and CT brought about new hope for bringing Connor home soon. What a little trooper he is.

The entire Youth Group has been lifting Connor in prayer for weeks now.

We love you and pray God will continue to bring you little miracles that will become a large miracle. OF course his life is already a large miracle.

We love you!
