Special Prayer Request

Prayer Request: For Ethan, a little boy with Down Syndrome who is critically ill with Pneumonia. His Mom writes:

Our entire house was in the middle of going through a round of the stomach bug, including Ethan. And his turned bad…fast. He became completely lethargic with labored breathing. When he got to the ER he declined quick. He was put on 100% oxygen and was still desatting. By the time they got him admitted and into a room, it was clear he would need to be ventilated. They did a chest x-ray and found pneumonia in his lungs. His stomach was filled with blood. Initial labs came back normal, so further cultures were taken. There was a point where it was so critical they did not know if he would make it through the night.

We are waiting for results to get some idea as to what is going on internally. Ethan remains on the ventilator, where he is sedated.

One would think that after having a child hospitalized for 2 years, we would be strong. We were not. It was probably the most broken moment I have felt in these 2 years. I did not realize how quickly we had put the memories of the hospital behind us. And I did not know how easily the feelings would come rushing back.

O Mary, be with this family, send all of your angels to guide them to healing and comfort them in this fearful time.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you ♥
