Prayers Please

Well, many of you know that my niece, Ashley, had her baby boy. Caden. Well, yesterday, they noticed that Caden had labored breathing. To be safe, they transferred him to a bigger hospital. Now, of course my first worry, was that he had a heart condition. But, I believe that has been ruled out by the echo they did last night. So, now they are looking at his lungs as well as his brain activity.

I ask you all to send your prayers to Caden. He is a so new to the world and needs all the thoughts and prayers you can give him. And Ashley is scared. I can't imagine how scary that would be, being a young, first time mom. I know how scared I was with Iris, and she was my second child and I was already 26...with a little experience.

I don't talk a lot about God. I am sure that many of my family members wonder where I stand with Him. I am not very open about my relationship with God, as I feel that it is only mine and God's business. But I will say that I have my firm belief in Him....there is no way I would have gotten this far in life if I hadn't. But, I also have my beliefs of how I should be able to talk, pray & generally communicate with him. I know He hears me, no matter if it is in my car on my way to work, or in a Church. Which, I will be honest, and say that I have not regularly gone to Church for sometime. But it doesn't mean I don't believe. And I will say that since we found about Iris' congenital heart defect, I have talked to him a whole lot more.

Please talk to Him a lot, and ask him to guard Caden.

Love You All,

Anna & The Kings

Praying for Caden. We both know how helpless it feels!

I was also sorry to hear that Iris only gained 1/2 a pound with the formula change! I'll keep checking back to see how things are going. I'm praying for Iris as well.
