Prayers needed for Baby Cailey Anna!

On October 11, 2010, Baby Cailey Anna was born to Natalie and Greg Harman. She weighed in at 6 pounds 13 ounces. Cailey Anna was delivered at a birthing center and was not breathing when she was born. An ambulance was called and she was taken to a nearby hospital and then later transferred to another hospital that was better equipped for her. Her parents have so much faith in God. They are so very strong and inspiring.

Cailey began gasping for air on her own and had a good heartrate but was not responding. Supposedly she had a problem with her blood gases which causes a lack of oxygen resulting in damage to vital organs.

The hospital put Cailey on a cold treatment to prevent further swelling. They are concerned about damage to her brain. After 72 hours they slowly raised the temperature and performed an EEG and an MRI to test for brain activity. The results were not what we had hoped for. The tests showed severe damage in the back and sides of the brain and the stem. Cailey is still not moving or even trying to do simple tasks like breathing or clearing out her airway on her own. Her condition has not changed since she was rewarmed, she has stayed the same.

So now they wait. Wait for a miracle for this sweet baby girl. So all I ask is that you spare a prayer today that a miracle occurs for this faithful family.
