My friend's 10 month old son

Postby katiejo » Wed Sep 12, 2007 12:58 pm

Please pray for my friend Angie & her family. Her 10 month old son Gabe is in the hospital in critical condition. He got e-coli & now has been diagnosed with a rare blood disorder called TTP-HUS (the HUS part is caused by the e-coli). She is also pregnant with their 3rd child & is due in April, so she's worried about all the stress that is being put on her affecting the pregnancy.
Please pray for healing for Gabe & for strength for the family. The doctors have given them a 90% survival rate, but this disorder can be fatal. TIA!

:ptl:
He's slowly improving! They've taken him off the ventilator, feeding tube & 24 hour dialysis. In fact, they've taken him off dialysis completely for now so they can see how well his kidneys are functioning. The doctors think that his kidneys may be close to 100% by the end of the week! He had an MRI the other day & discovered a bleed on the brain. They were expecting this, & they will be watching for developmental delays & vision issues.
The best news, though, is that he is smiling at his parents & the nurses!! This is a huge step, since he had been sedated due to his agitation!
Thank you all so much who have been praying for this family! They appreciate it so much! He's still in ICU, so the prayers are still welcome & needed. Hopefully the next post i make about this will be a praise that he's going home!! :praying:

Gabe has been moved out of ICU & may be able to go home at the end of this week! :ptl: He's been off dialysis for 2 days & things are going well! Please pray for continued healing & that there are no neurological effects.
On a sad note, Angie, Gabe's mom, miscarried yesterday. She was 10 or 11 weeks. She went in for a routine ultrasound & there was no heartbeat. She is scheduled for a d&c tomorrow. Please pray for strength & healing for the family.
Thanks everyone for your prayers!

I'm so glad to hear little Gabe is doing better! At the same time I feel sad for Angie's loss...I will continue to keep them in my prayers.

Thanks for all of the prayers. The family is healing from the loss & Gabe is getting stronger every day. The specialist yesterday called it "a miraculous recovery"! He lights up when he sees his brother & laughs with him. He still has the feeding tube (i thought that it was already out, but i was wrong), but he is really tired of it. He's been seeing a speech therapist to help heal his throat. Once he's eating on his own better, they will start procedures to send him home. Hopefully that will be soon! I will keep you all posted. Thanks again - i know how much the family appreciates all the prayers! :D
