This Sweet Baby Needs Your Prayers!

Urgent! Please pray for precious little Peyton Rose, the great-niece of my dear sister-in-law. She was just born on October 31st and has been diagonosed with an intestinal disorder called Hirschsprung's Disease in which the nerve cells in the lower part of the large intestinal are non-existent. She needs lifesaving intensive medical care and probably surgery to alleviate intestinal blockage. With the Lord's help she will pull through this trial. Her mommy is with her but is recuperating from a C-Section so she and the rest of the family could use prayer as well.
Things are looking up for Peyton, praises be to God! They decided not to go ahead with the surgery as she seems to be eliminating on her own. So perhaps their diagnosis of Hirschsprung's was a bit hasty. She was scheduled for a biopsy but they have elected to hold off until Monday while they see how she does over the weekend. She has also been connected to an IV but she's a feisty little thing and keeps pulling it off so they may leave it off her and try feeding her orally. Her mommy would like to nurse her but doesn't know if they'll allow it. I'm praying that she will be able to get some of that colostrum ASAP, not to mention being held and cuddled by mama. Her daddy got to snuggle with her in the nursery, and I can just imagine the joy! Keep praying! Miracles are happening! :)
