    As many of you know I have asked for your prayer and thanks to God for Baby Ethan and his family. Baby Ethan was born without the ability to make enough infection fighting cells. He had been ill, gravely at times, and then improved, making his monthly goals. I've heard through another friend that Baby Ethan is again ill and having difficulty. I ask that you PLEASE continue to pray for health and healing for Baby Ethan and his family.

    Thank you so much.

    I just spoke with my friend about her son Ethan. He continues to suffer with opportunistic infections, like ear infections, only he can't fight them like a normal child would be able to. Baby Ethan is almost 11mos now and has had a rough first year. Thanks to God, prayer, a dedicated family, friends, and a great group of specialists, he has been able to face each new day, but it's been difficult. I once again ask that you PLEASE keep Baby Ethan, his family, and his health care team in your prayers.


    Thank you so much for your hope and time.

    Little Baby Ethan will turn 1yr in just a few days and again relapsed with a severe opportunistic infection. He and his family have had a rough year, but thank God he is still here with us. I will again ask you kind people to say a prayer for him, his family, and his doctors. Hopefully his second year of life will be easier for him. Thank you all so very, very much.

    for your kind words and prayers. I still have not heard from my friend and I'm very worried. I will update you as soon as I hear anything.


    You all are very special people, taking the time to pray for others you don't even know.

    Thank you again.

    he still needs all of our prayers. He was diagnosed with RSV which is a virus that attacks the very young, especially those under the age of 1 year. This virus starts as a typical cold and then reeks havoc on the body, especially the lungs. He will have trouble from this virus his whole life. PLEASE continue to pray for him and hopefully he will fully recover and if we're lucky, not experience too many problems from this disease.


    Thank you all so much!

    I am sorry to hear about little Ethan's RSV. I am glad that they know for sure what it is.

    My grandson had RSV. They rushed him from the small town hospital to a large children's hospital. I am glad to say that he made a full recovery and is a healthly little thing.

    I will keep Ethan in my pryaers as well as his family.

    God bless; Pam

    One precious thing I learnt from this board is to pray. So I'll pray for little Ethan and his family. I also pray for wisdom for the doctors to have the best way to help Ethan.

    I will pray for Ethan that he is restored to perfect health.

    My next door neighbor and closest friend just lost her grandaughter, age 2 months from RSV, however she also had SMA - Spinal Muscular Atrophy. She passed on Jan 1.

    I will keep Ethan in my prayers - these illnesses are so dangerous.

    Just checked the worsship board and noticed your update on baby Ethan. Sending positive thoughts and prayers up for him and his family. I`ve heard of so many sick babies lately. My friend lost her 2 year old grandson two weeks ago. I didn`t get the details if it was RSV. I know it was a virus type thing that just kids get. Hopefully, Ethan will come through this just fine.

    for taking the time to pray for Baby Ethan and his family, and for replying to the thread. My heart is bursting from all the support I've got but mostly the response of individuals like you to the family and Baby Ethan.

    UPDATE: Little Ethan HAS shown progress in fighting his RSV infection. However, he is not making the normal amount of white blood cells and neutrohil cells which are needed to fight infection. His doctors and specialists do not yet understand why this is happening. Baby Ethan needs these cells at a normal level or he can not fight infection. Anything can potentially make him sick. I ask of you again...PLEASE pray for Little Ethan and his family.

    Thank you so much.

    Poor baby Ethan has been through a long rough time. I hate to hear of this little darlings suffering. I am sending more prayers and healing thoughts up for him and his family.

    that Little Ethan has again taken a turn for the worse. I'm not exactly sure what is going on but I do know that his little body still refuses to make new white blood cells and neutrophils that he needs to fight infection. The specialists can't even figure out what is happening. I'm so scared for him and his family and feel like the only thing I can do is pray and ask for others to pray. I'm again asking you to PLEASE pray for Baby Ethan and his family.

    Thank you so much.

    the specialists still don't know why his little body still does not make the white blood cells and neutrophils he needs to fight infection. He HAS to start making these cells soon. His poor parents are beside themselves.

    Your prayers have been greatly appreciated. Hopefully we'll see a big turn-around soon.

    Thank you.
