    Default Could use a little help.

    without going into too much detail...

    My youngest sister and her husband are expecting their first child and are scheduled for him to come into the world this Friday. She has seen lots of doctors and specialists who can't seem to agree on anything. Anything, except the fact that if the little guy makes it he is going to have a very hard road ahead of him.

    Any thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.

    BTW, his name is Grayson and I really hope to help him land his first fish someday.

    Jason, Prayers going up for you, your family and the baby. God can work magic man. Never forget that.

    My brother's son was born at 23 weeks. 1.2 pounds this was on Jan. 21. To beat it all his name is Grayson as well.... He got to come home day before yesterday and now weighs 5.7 pounds and is 21 inches long. Never underestimate the power of God my friend.

    Jason, You are for sure looking in the right direction for help. Just keep your faith in the LORD, he "always" knows what is best.
    Our prayers are with Grayson and your family.
    God Bless you all.

    Jason,
    I am very sorry to hear this. I will keep your family in my prayers. My wife and I had a couple miscarriges before our son was born and we were unable to have another baby after. While none of them were carried to full term, we experienced the grief of the loss much the same.

    Your sister needs a lot of love and understanding and will need it for quite some time. If she is anything like Leslie (my wife) she really doesn't need for people to tell her everything is going to be OK (even though with time it will) and she doesn't need anyone to remind her she's young and can still have more children (and she most likely can). The best thing is for you and the family to be ready to give a hug when it's needed, to understand as she goes through the stages of grief, and most of all to let her know how much you love her and that you all are there for her whenever she needs you.

    She will probably have good days and bad days for a pretty long time to come. I learned on some days when Leslie seemed happiest was when she was really struggling the most.

    I'm not speaking from a position of sage advice. I'm speaking as a man who made a lot of mistakes and learned from them.

    We do not know why God allows things like this to happen but we can rest assured it is in His plan.

    The fact you posted the request for prayers says a lot about how much you must love your sister. The number of guys who responded with prayers and support shows there are still people in this world who will take time ouf of their days so show compassion to someone they've never met.

    You did a very good thing out of love for her. Sometime when the time is right (and you will know if the time is ever right, I can't explain how, but you will know), it may be wise to show her this thread and let her know that she was not alone. The time may never be right, but if it is, you will just know it.

    Again, Jason, your family will remain in my prayers. Your sister is not alone, God is with her and there are a number of us praying for her still.

    Jeff

    Jason, I'm really sorry to hear that. I know it is tough to face such struggles in life. Hang in there, buddy.

    Jason,
    The loss of a child would very hard for me. In times like these I always remember my Irish grandmoter saying "death leaves a heartache no one can heal, and love leaves a memory no one can steal".

    Grouseman--I just now noticed your posts and the replies about the loss of the little one. Words fail at times such as these, but please know that your sister, her husband, you, and all concerned are in my thoughts.

    About all I can offer in the way of solace is a reminder that in times of trouble look to the good earth--it never, ever lets us down, and in the bosom of the wild there is a caress for the troubled soul.
