My baby is fighting for his life and it is really up to him and God now. They are utilizing all the technology they have and are giving him the maximized treatments they can. I believe it is in God's hands now and all we can do is pray that Owen is given a chance to live... if he is given a chance that he has not suffered damage to his brain or organs.... we just have to pray that whatever is best for Owen happens. I know many of you probably believe in the power of prayer and I wanted to take the time to tell you what has happened and ask you to pray for us and for Owen. I need some sleep... there are more details and medical stuff I want to look up... I want to have a very clear understanding of what Owen is facing now. The doctors and nurses at the N.I.C.U. are incredible, amazing... and they have really gone out of their way to make help us understand what they are doing for him. Anyways, thank you in advance for your prayers and thoughts... if many, many people are thinking of Owen maybe he will fight his way through this. I will be back sometime for an update, though I don't know when. BTW, he is a beautiful boy with a head full of dark hair!
Sweet Baby Owen

In Jesus name...Amen

I will be thinking of your baby boy. I grew up in Indy and hear good things about Riley's NICU (Is that where you are?)
