Hi, I'm new here. My son was born 4 months early he was only 1 lb 7 oz. He is very sick. He has alot of medical problems and at 9 months old he is still in the ICU. He has just recently gotten a Trach and is still on the ventilator. He is doing very good considering. I have just found it so hard to stay strong. I know with all my heart and soul he is going to be fine some day. The reason I know this is because when he was 4 months old the doctors said he was going to die, but I didn't feel sad I wanted to scream at him and say NO HE IS NOT! and then the doctor said this " We have done all we can do, it is up to him and God now" and at that very moment even though his heart was stopping I knew deep down he was going to live. because My son Mathew is a fighter and God is a healer. He lived and is doing better, but still sick and in the hospital and everyday that passes I feel sad because he isn't well and home yet. So what I'm asking is Please pray for my son to be well and for my family and I to be able to hang in there just a little longer.
