Quick report on baby Isaac

Here is me, holding Isaac in the NICU










He is just too cute, and he doesn't like Pics... lol









Here mommy was changing
his diaper and he was not too
happy about it...










So Isaac is actually doing really well THANK YOU JESUS!!!
The Dr's almost let him go home for Christmas but decided against it at the last minutes... They just didn't want him to get sick while out of the hospital... They have also decided to postpone the surgery for 2-3 weeks so the baby can get stronger. God is doing so much for this baby... They told my sis ( the Dr's) that most of Isaac's blood test are coming out good, and they are thinking he might not have D'jorges after all... Hooray!!! Obviously he does have something but they are now saying it might be less severe... once again Thank you Jesus. I just gotta say that if people does not believe in miracles, here is one little boy that is only a week old and already a miracle!

Please Pray For Baby Isaac

Isaac Alexander
Was born Dec. 19 around 4:20 a.m.
he weight 6 1/2 lb
It had been a very long (almost 30 hrs) waiting time for my sister Ari... at one point her Epidural (hope I spelled that right) didn't work any more... so she was in so much pain, she was crying and trying not to. I was totally lost and did not know what to do. when the baby finally came, he was not breathing on his on so they massage his little body to stimulate his lungs and after they cleaned his air way, he cryed weakly then they took him away... It was really sad because my sis could not even hold him... she did not see him till like 10 a.m. when the baby and my sis were being transferred, baby Isaac to NICU and my sis to a regular room. It was heart braking to say the least. My sis started crying and once again I did not know what to do! What do you tell a mother when she can not even hold her newborn child??
Well, that was Friday and the pic. above is what Little Isaac looked like when I left Loma Linda Children's Hospital...And God has already perform miracles in his life!!!
Today I talk to my sis and she told me she got to hold him and she was just so happy!!! she also told me they took the breathing tube out, he is currently breathing on his own & also eating on his own. He is currently eating 5 cc at a time.
I know he has a long road ahead of him still, but I believe that God has His mighty hand on my baby nephew!!!
My sis was told that he will need heart surgery to correct the Troncosis and chamber problem (he has one instead of 2)... that's probably going to be Monday or Tuesday... They also think he might have to have a retina transplant ( that's in the eye), but they have to wait till next Thursday for the pediatric optometrist to see him... What the Dr. that I spoke to, told me was that one of their biggest worries was that he might have an immuno defiance, which can bring on a lot of problems for a baby like Isaac. All of this problems are cause by D'Jorges syndrome which Isaac has...
I just ask for all of you to keep baby Isaac in your prayers and also his mommy and that through this she might be able to get close to God...

Pray for my sister Ary and Baby Isaac

Hi everyone! Some of you know that my sister Ary is expecting a baby for the 24Th of December and she now knows that she is gonna be induce on the 16Th. Her baby is coming with heart problems and that's why they decided to induced her early... My sister was devastated when they told her after some test that the baby had DiJorge's syndrome which depending of the severity of the syndrome can cause major deformities (Baby Isaac's heart condition is also cause by Dijorge's) Well since then, my sister had an ultrasound showing baby Isaac's face with no deformities which is a major miracles cause they told her that he had a 70% chance that he would have a cleft palette [ hope I spelled that right 8^)] Anyways. I thank God for this awesome miracle!!!! Well I spoke to my sister last night and she was kind of sad, my mom was supposed to be here with my sister to help her out and as of yesterday its more likely she wont make it... my dad has been very sick and has had a fever for the last 3 days! Please pray for him... My mom has decided that she can not leave my dad alone, because my other sisters just cant take care of him... I am sad... but my sisters is more sad. My mom does not know about the baby's problems, my sister was waiting till she got here to tell her cause she did not want to worry her... so she probably wont tell her till after the baby is born and she knows what is gonna happen! thank you for reading my post, and for all your prayers! This is now my way of unloading 8^)
Love all of you my friends
