    I realize I've asked for more than my fair share of pixie dust lately - but I hope you won't mind.

    This is my cousin, Maddox. He was born 17 days ago and has remained in NICU since. He has been diagnosed with congenital chylothorax. Basically, there is a tear or kink in his lymphatic system so when his lymph system tries to filter and process things it leaks fluid into his chest cavity. In his 17 days he has been through a lot - needle aspirations, chest tubes, ventilators...the works. The good news is these typically heal on their own with time. The bad news is they have to remain in the hospital until it heals and they have no way of knowing when that will be. They have a daughter, Mackenzie, who is two and the family has been so strong and faithful. Unfortunately after 2+ weeks I think the stress is beginning to take it's toll -

    So if you could spare a thought for them today - for some good news - I'd appreciate it more than you know. My heart truly aches for this little family. If you'd like, you can read more here.

    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    Thank you. It's been so hard on them, they've barely been able to hold him at all. Yesterday was the first day Jessica (his mom) was able to have a bit of skin to skin contact with him. I think it did them BOTH wonders.

    I have pictures of my niece like that, she was born with a hole in her heart and spent her first 6 months in hospital.

    It was terrifying seeing her attached to a machine, I can imagine how her parents must be feeling, they look so small and fragile, my heart really does go out to them all. Hopefully it won't be too long until she will be able to hold him and cuddle him as he gets stronger

    Poor little peanut

    Having seen my baby boy looking much like that for weeks and not being able to hold him, I know how painful this can be. Lots of prayers that he is 100% very soon!!
