Praise Report – Baby Baker ❤️

Written by scoopsnews on May 13, 2016 – 10:02 am -


From Mom Amanda:

This happy boy has been up watching cartoons with Dad this morning and trying to talk to his grandparents! ☺️ We have had no fever for over 24hrs now. Tests are showing that his white blood cell count being elevated so much was caused from a UTI. Since this is so uncommon for boys we will run a test in a few days to see if it stemmed from possible bladder/kidney reflux which would be pretty common to have in babies his age. One more night here of IV antibiotics and then being sent home tomorrow with more antibiotics. Things are looking good here this morning for Baby Baker!💙 We praise God for His hand of protection and healing! Thank you all for surrounding us with so much love and lifting our little family up in prayer! That is a priceless gift to us. Happy Friday!!! -Amanda & Caleb

Update on Baby Baker…. Keep Praying

Update on Sweet Baby Baker from his Mom, Amanda….

The doctor just came in.. Baker’s white blood cell count is still high. He hasn’t had fever for the last few hours which is a plus. Due to the age he is right now it is hard to pin point what is causing the count to be so high until some more test results come in in a day or so. They are giving him antibiotics. Thank you for your prayers and concern! Please keep them coming. Love you all! -Amanda & Caleb Cowan
