Baby Luke

Update posted by Amont75 On Mar 10, 2015

   We are here in Philadelphia. We arrived February 26 and have been here since. We were first told Luke was going to have surgery and then they changed that. the Doctors want to do every thing possible to avoid surgery. So now they are monitoring his sugar, still testing every 3 hours. And they try to lower the mixture of sugar through his IV. Today they are going to try to give him the extra sugar through is stomach and see if he tolerates that. Then he won't need the IV. He will probably need a feeding tube no matter what and a pump of some kind to give him the extra sugar he needs at night. Poor baby has been poked more in his first month of life than most of us in our whole lifetime. So as of now the Doctor is leaning more towards yes he will need the surgery. It's good that they are trying everything to avoid surgery, how can this little body take that? But all this waiting and being away from home and normal life is wearing on everyone. Mom and Dad have been so brave and so good about all of this. It's harder some days than others but then Mom holds her baby boy and all is good. Luke is so good. He hardly fusses and doesn't cry much at all. I have this open until April 8, because thats when he should have been born. We appreciate everything and anything you have and can donate to help Luke and his family. Again thank you for reading about my grandson Luke and thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

He's a strong little guy and with all of our prayers he will come through this wonderfully. I know I will keep him in prayer and have my church praying too. Please let me know how it all comes out. God Bless You!
