Prayers for Johnathan Please

My precious little nephew, Johnathan David Norman, was born Thursday, August 9, 2007, at about 9:30 PM. He is three weeks premature and was not responding well after the delivery. My sister had a long, rough, stressful labor and the nurses and doctors were attributing John's lack of response to the labor and the stress. He was taken into the NI CU that night and was released about 2:30 AM. Yesterday he seemed to be doing well, he had bruising around his mouth from being bagged the night before, and his fingers, lips, and feet were a little purple, but not cold. This too was attributed to the stress of the labor and delivery. This morning around 4:30AM he was readmitted to the NI CU. The doctors said he has a collapsed lung and he also has pneumonia. Currently he is on antibiotics and oxygen, as well as an IV to receive his nutrition. My sister is being released today, the hospital is trying to arrange accommodations for her so she does not have to leave the hospital and go home with out her sweet boy. He will have to stay in the hospital a little longer.

Please pray for a speedy, complete recovery for this little guy. Also, pray for his parents, he is their first born and this is a very rough time for them.
