Pray for no more apnea

I'll just post the email that Jaymie sent me today:
"Kanyon is still having the apnea and heart rate drop today. They say that as long as they can pat him or rub his feet to 'wake him up' and remind him to breathe on his own they will just keep things as they are. If they have to actually give him breathing assistance, then they will put him back on the ventilator. This apnea seems to be a common problem because this is the kind of breathing he would be doing inside my tummy..its just that sporadic shallow breaths don't work once you're out of the womb! We are still praying (and want everyone else to too) that this will stop. We sure don't want to have to take the step back to the vent. They say as long as it stays this way, they just have to wait for him to outgrow it...which usually might come around week 33. We're not even to week 29 yet! One of the first days we were there, Jim the nurse told us it was going to be a roller coaster and he reminded me today that this kind of thing is what he was talking about. Dr. Chris came in this afternoon while I was there and kind of said the same stuff. I guess it's good that they aren't freaking out about this, but I sure would like to keep coasting through without having to take steps backwards. I really believe that if we're all praying for this, that it can stop. He doesn't have to be like 'most babies' - we want him to be better than most! :)"
Let's honor Jaymie's request and pray for no more apnea!

From the mouth of a four year old: "Dear God, Please help baby Kanyon to breath good. He needs your help." Our family prays together every night for Kanyon and I pray many, many times during the day. God loves your family, he knows your needs and he will answer our prayers. Stay strong and let God lead the way.

Jaymie - I love your comment "He doesn't have to be like 'most babies' - we want him to be better than most!" Trust me, precious one, he has many generations of Cagle blood coursing through his tiny veins. He comes from great genes! (Add Kory's bloodline to the mix - and he's got what it takes.) And last but not least, we serve a mighty God. Love you much!
