Prayer request - Update

Another update: My sister and her husband went up tonight. They have removed Wyatt from the vent but he is still very critical. The doctors told his parents that the next 48 hours would be critical. They are worried about him developing infection. His mommy was going to try and feed him tonight. Rachel (my sister) got to go back and see him and she said he is gorgeous. His parents are doing well under the circumstances. They cherish any and all prayer. Thank you again for the prayers.

Update: I found out today that baby Wyatt aspirated on meconium before delivery. He was a couple of days overdue and his mama went in for a check-up. He is still in critical condition, but the vent was removed a little while ago. They were going to try and feed him for the first time. I will update as I receive more news. My sister and Josh were going to go up tonight. Thank you for your prayers and please continue to pray for baby Wyatt and his parents.

I would like to ask for prayer tonight for sweet little Wyatt Tanner Grissom. He was born yesterday. His mommy had to have an emergency c-section and when Wyatt was born, he had no heartbeat. The doctors were able to revive him and he is in the NICU. Wyatt has a long road ahead of him. I am not sure of the circumstances surrounding his birth. I do know that there had been no problems with the pregnancy until yesterday. Wyatt's parents are friends of my sister and brother in law. That family could certainly use all of the prayers that we can offer up. Please pray for Wyatt to gain strength and continue to improve. Also pray for his parents as they figure out what is best for little man Wyatt.

Much love,


  1. Oh...bless his heart...this is all so we didn't have the NICU to take him to and had to fly him away before I ever got to hold him.

    I am so sorry for them and will keep them in my prayers!!!

  2. My Bobby passed the merconium in utero. He was 2 days past due. Just praying for this sweet little life and knowing God is holding him in His hands.
