Calling All Warriors

Nyana’s army has been one of the most incredible byproducts of our journey through the NICU. I know there are hundreds of you thinking nothing but healing thoughts for Nyana’s lungs and happy thoughts for her parents’ wellbeing. We wholly believe that much of Nyana’s success has been thanks to all the prayers sent into the universe from all of you, Nyana’s army.

When we were in our darkest days and we asked for prayers, her doctors were amazed just days later at the seemingly miraculous turn around she had made. When we told you about Baby Noah and asked for peace for his parents, you all did one better and four days later Baby Noah was thriving and heading home. Now, we need to ask all of you warriors to rally together one more time, for Baby Neema.

Neema was born far too early—at only 24 weeks—and has been living comfortably here in the NICU since August. After struggling for four months with BPD and test-driving all the different forms of respiratory support, Neema contracted an infection last night and her condition is worsening. This morning she was re-intubated and her oxygen requirements skyrocketed to 70-80%. Her parents, some of the nicest people I know and deserving nothing but happiness with their daughter, are standing strong while I know they’re hurting and scared on the inside. While Nyana has been getting better by the day, Neema has either plateaued or slowly slid backwards for the past month. I know that the prayers you’ve all sent for Nyana have been heard and answered. I’m asking for you to please send some healing thoughts Neema’s way today. Her parents have a very close relationship with God, and I’m sure a few extra nudges in the right direction would do all three of them a world of good.

I’ve seen firsthand the amazing things Nyana’s army can do. Let’s try for one more miracle, shall we?

    I can only imagine the struggles, worry and heartache that Neema’s family is going through and they will all be in my thoughts and prayers with visions of her getting strong and healthy just as Nyana did.
    Karen and Don, please relay to Neema’s parents that they are not traveling this journey alone, that Nyana’s Grannie and countless other people are rallying around them with positive thoughts.
    God, if you are listening, please give Neema the strength to repair her damaged lungs so that she may go home to her family soon.
