I have a special prayer request for all you prayer warriors out there. The adorable boy in the picture is Landen. He’s 9 years old and the nephew of a dear friend of mine.
Landen has Primordial Dwarfism and has been in and out of the hospital for different health issues. He is currently in the hospital and has seen good days and bad days.
He really needs our prayers. Here is the latest update(about 8 hours ago) from his parents:
Landen is stable this morning but things are very serious. They are doing a bronchoscopy to try and determine if he has a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection in his lungs. We are not out of treatment options but none of the options are good options because what they would need to use would further damage other organs. He will be on 24 hr. dialysis and is getting pheresis now. Doctors are doing all they know to do.
I am so thankful for the great doctors and nurses taking care of Landen but I remind us that our hope is in Jesus. It is up to Him. We trust Him. We know He loves us and loves Landen more than any of us do. We know He can speak the word and heal Landen but if He chooses differently, He is still our Hope. We will still trust Him.
Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
PRAY for Landen and our family. God is still able!
