Prayers for Logan {again}

Note: This is a follow-up post regarding some medical trouble that my nephew has had. You can read all the posts about Logan's condition here. The posts are listed by recency, so start reading at the bottom of the list.


I'm so sad to write this post this morning. My sweet little nephew is back in the ICU. Many of you may remember me requesting prayer for him last month. He has had a couple of relapses since then. In fact, the picture above was taken when he was last discharged on August 9. Today I'm asking for prayer again. Specifically, I'm asking you to pray for a miracle.

The Bible is full of stories about people who carried their loved ones to Jesus. With a touch of his hand, he wiped away all the sickness and disease and restored them to health. If I could physically carry Logan to Jesus, I would, but I can't. I can carry him to Jesus in prayer. I believe that God is still in the healing business. If you believe the same thing, please join me in carrying my nephew to the Lord.

The doctors stand by their previous diagnosis of meningoencephalitis, but they think that has now caused ADEM (acute disseminated encephalomyelitis). Don't google it. It's scary. Basically, he has several areas of swelling in his brain. He's on high doses of steroids to reduce the swelling, but if the swelling does not go down soon, they will drill a hole in his skull to relieve the pressure.

If you're a mom, you know how terrifying that sounds.

So please, pray for a miracle. Pray for complete healing and no long-term damage. Pray for God to glorify Himself in this situation - that He may receive all the credit for Logan's healing. Just pray. Please.

I will keep you updated as I learn more.

Thank you for your faithful prayers.
