Urgent Prayer Requested!

Karen called me home from work tonight because Jacob wasn't doing well. His nurse is at the house currently and he's having difficulty breathing in his right lung. He's spewed out most of his last feed from over 5 hours ago and it doesn't look like he was digesting it or absorbing his medicine. The worst part though is that he's had several long periods where he's stop breathing all together and hasn't been able to be stimulated out of it. The nurse is giving us instructions on how to stimulate his heart as long as it continues to beat and after that... we're not ready to go there! Please continue to lift him up and pray that he is able to breathe steadily and tolerate his food and medicine! Thanks!

Dear Fahmer family,

I just checked your blog and noticed your latest post regarding the urgent prayer request for precious Jacob. I know this must be a very scary moment but please know that you will be surrounded by prayers from all over the world tonight. I will email all of my "Internet" friends that walked this Trisomy 18 road with me and ask them to pray.

Love, Yvette Hostetter

I am praying for each of you right now. I pray that God will keep fear from taking hold of you, and instead replace fear with an unfathomable peace. He alone holds the power of life and death! Jacob is safe in His hands.

My prayers are with you all. I ask God to bless baby Jacob. He is such a sweetheart and so are his brother, mommy and daddy and whole family.

I pray that he will begin to breath better and grow in strength, tolerate his meds and his food. Gods blessings are always upon him.
