Rhyder Anderson needs our prayers...

Michele and Dave Anderson

Rhyder and his family desperately need prayers. He is not quite 3 weeks old and has Trisomy 18. I was so fortunate to visit with his family this past Thursday and I was able to hold him. He is having central apnea spells very quickly tonight and he has pulled through a few other times. They want so badly more time with their lil man, Rhyder. They do not have a blog, but are on facebook. His parents are Dave and Michele Anderson. You can request their names on facebook and follow Rhyders journey.
I just found out that they have begun a blog for Rhyder.


Talked with Michele this morning. He was brought by ambulance to TCH and is now in NICU. They had begun to give him caffine at home for his central apnea but sometimes you have to adjust the levels. It is not the same for all. They admitted him and placed him on C-Pap to help with his breathing and try to get his caffine level adjusted. I know his family would treasure your prayers for this little bitty Angel.

Annabel meets sweet Rhyder...


It was so good to hear from Brenda yesterday. My thoughts were with them as they held Brianna's memorial service. I so wanted to be there, but just not possible. She sounded wonderful. I loved hearing how beautiful the service was and how they have been so lifted up by family and friends. They are truly God's faithful servants and know she is in a better place. Of course they miss her terribly and that will not end. But to be at such peace, what an amazing gift. Please contine to visit Brianna's site for a video that her and Jerry made for the memorial. Also, when they recieve the video of the actual service they will also share this with all of Brianna's followers. Please keep them in your prayers as there will be times that are low and times that are high.

Annabel Leigh, Trisomy 18, 4 1/2 mths.

I talked with Annabel Leigh's father on Thursday about his precious little girl Annabel Leigh. I love the name.They were struggling with decisions. They are on hospice and they were making decision to do more interventions. She was retracting and they were trying to decide about taking her to the hospital to rule out respiratory or other issues. This is their first child and want to give her every chance they can. I have not spoken to him again and not seen an update on her blog. If you would like to visit this little Angel who is so full of joy her address is:
