Caleb Anthony Taylor

My precious sister went into labor 8 weeks before her due date.  After a scary night and day, Caleb Anthony Taylor was born.  Weighing in at a whopping 3lbs. 5oz. and measuring 17 inches long HE IS BEAUTIFUL.

He is also in intensive care.  He is currently on oxygen as well as antibiotics to ward off any infections along with dopamine to help regulate his blood pressure.  He has great color and is doing remarkably well.

Andrea was a champ!  She is feeling pretty good and recovering well.  Her and Aaron could sure use your prayers.  As you can imagine, a surprise like this is a lot to take in and they are understandably overwhelmed at the journey they are embarking on.

I read today, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."  Jn. 14:27

Please pray...
For Caleb's blood pressure to regulate so they can take him off of dopamine
For Caleb's lungs to begin functioning well apart from the respirator
For Andrea to heal well and find a balance between trips to the hospital and taking care of her 3 kids at home
For the Lord to be near Andrea and Aaron and bless them with new mercies each day 
That in the midst of this journey of waiting that God would bless this family with peace
For Jesus to bring His glory and peace in the midst of this situation to the nurses at the hospital

Here he is.  A precious little boy.
