* Lilli’s new baby brother …

Posted on April 22nd, 2010 by melinda in Another day in the life of me.

I have some really exciting news to share with y’all … we have a new baby here on the devil’s track.  He was a surprise!  He is itty bitty, weighing in at 2 lbs 10 ounces, he was born early yesterday morning at only 26 weeks old.  His name is Jacob Riley and belongs to my friend Davey and Kristen.  He is the grand son of Penny and Randy.  I guess I should clarify that he isn’t on the devil’s track as of yet, he is in the neonatal intensive care unit at the hospital.  He is breathing on his own, his vital signs are good but he certainly isn’t out of the woods yet.  He will be in the hospital for a minimum of 8 weeks and that’s if all goes well.  His big sister, Lilli, is beyond excited.  She told her daddy yesterday that “this was this was the best surprise ever”!  I’d say that is an understatement.   I would love to ask you all to pray for him as he grows into a healthy little boy.  I’m sure there will be many obsticles in the days to come, but if he is anything like his daddy, he will be so completely stubborn and hard headed that he will fight thru them.  Pray specifically that his lungs continue to develop and he is capable of fighting off any sickness that may come his way.  I tend to believe that this beautiful little boy must have some very important reason for being here and we’d sure like him to stick around for a very long time.  Pray for his parents to find the guidance they need, the patience they will need, the strength and wisdom to make the best decisions possible in the days and weeks to come.  Although I don’t know Kristen’s family, I can tell you this baby boy has one incredible family on his dad’s side that need your prayers too.  I ask that you keep Penny and Randy in your thoughts and prayers also as they continue to be supportive in more ways than I can ever explain. 

Thank you so very much.
