Please put in an extra prayer (or ten) for Rhys

We need everyone to send up an extra prayer for Rhys. He isn't responding to the combo blood pressure meds and he is at 100% oxygen. He didn't care for the ultrasound earlier today and they haven't been able to lower his oxygen since the tech left. Right now his saturation is in the mid 90s, but earlier it was all over the place. They are talking about giving him more blood to try to help his blood pressure, so please let that work. I'd love a smallish roller coaster to replace this great big one we're currently on. *sigh*

I will continue to pray for our little man. Know that we are thinking of you all constantly. We love y'all. Keep your head up. Everything will be okay.

Dear God, we pray that you would bring Rhys's body into balance right now, through the use of a blood transfusion or whatever means the doctors choose. We pray that he would respond well, and that you would continue to fill him with strength and health today. Please continue to sustain Candice and Cody through these transitions, and anoint his doctors and nurses with great discernment as they do all they can to help him..."

We love you guys and are still praying!

Alicia, Levi, Mattie Joy, and John

I continue to pray for Rhys daily. Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers! Lots of love!

I am praying for you guys. Rhys is going to love Rollie as much as she is going to love him. That may just get to be her new hair style. At least suckers will be easier to remove. Keep the faith. God loves you and so do I! Aunt Tina.

Keep fighting, Rhys! Stay strong little buddy. Like Jennie, I think of you guys constantly. I find myself stopping whatever I'm doing at work to say a little prayer for Rhys throughout the day. Continue to stay strong. And lean on each other. Know there are many who love and care about you. If you need anything we are all here for you!

We check your blog at least once or twice a day, and have been praying for little Rhys since I found the link on (I think) Coy's blog. Also praying for you both - we've done the whole ICU rollercoaster thing (our son Charlie has a major heart condition) and it's no fun. So we're sending lots of love and support your way, from Cardiff, Wales, UK. (Where we know how to spell AND pronounce your little boy's name!) XX
