Prayers Needed

Yesterday afternoon my 2 month old nephew, Luke, was life flighted from Mercy Gilbert to Phoenix Children's Hospital due to complications of his heart and lungs stopping. They are still unsure of the cause of all of this and he is experiencing a lot of trauma and is currently in the ICU where they are constantly working on him.

Sweet Luke has a battle ahead of him. They did a CAT scan and could see his lungs were full of debris. He is hooked up to a ventilator even though he can breathe on his own now, they are trying to help his body recover and not work so hard. They are monitoring his brain as well as his lungs and are trying to get his lungs to where they are able to remove the debris. Lots of things are happening and he is a pretty sick little boy. Sara and Doug did everything right, they are amazing but so heartbroken. Please pray for comfort and strength for Sara and Doug and for Luke's little body to pull through. They will have more answers in a few days when lab results come back.

Thank you for all of your prayers. We have witnessed so many miracles in the last 24 hours and we are so thankful that Heavenly Father is watching over their family.
