Luke has an infection which they're trying to fight with antibiotics. Having some complications with his abdomen being irritated because of the dialysis, but docs aren't too concerned about it. Just plugging along today, not making a lot of progress. Heart rate's in the high 180s/low 190s. Thanks for your prayers!


  1. I will continue to pray for him and your family!

  2. You are all in our daily thoughts and prayers, as well as Luke's cheerleading squad in San Antonio! May God provide you rest of soul, spirit and body so that you can face each today with confidence in Him. May He give you peace in your soul and may you feel His arms of encouragement and love wrapping around you every minute. Blake's Mom, Vicki

  3. I don't know you, but am a good friend of the Cunninghams, and I just wanted to let you know we are praying for sweet baby Luke's healing. Your faith is a great example to so many.

  4. All "healing" takes time....as hard as it is; try to be patient and give Baby Luke time to grow and heal. You two give him so much strength everyday. Believe, have faith, and know that we are all praying for your family each and every day. One step foward, two steps back is what it seemed like when my son started his life for a 21 day stay in the hospital. Then all of a sudden it was just steps foward...when we finally heard the words, "Are you ready to take him home?" God always has a plan..Keep the faith!

  5. I know this is a hard time. I had a premature infant who spent 6 weeks in the NICU. I cried a lot. There were many good days but also days when he took a set back. I couldn't wait to bring him home and then the day finally came. Today he is a happy two year old. Stay strong and take each step as it comes. Luke knows you are there with him in the hospital. Lean on your friends and family. They are there for you. I am thinking about your family. * A friend of Vicki Cunningham

  6. Hey.....Jennifer just showed me your blog and I can keep up with you here. I am excited. We are keeping you in our prayers and love all three of you!!


  7. Hello, David and Rachel. Although I don't know you, your sweet family has been on my mind and in my prayers (I am a long time friend of the Cunningham's). I wish I had something powerful and life changing to say. I wish I had answers to questions you must be asking. But all I can offer you of any merit is comfort from God's Word.

    The Psalms bring such peace to me in times of trouble and I pray they do you as well. Two verses that speak great reassurance are, "You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning: my God turns darkness into light." (18:28) and "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the broekenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles but the Lord delivers him from the all (34:17-19).

    Precious Luke, has countless purposes in this life as all children do. He must be "teaching" you a lot about yourself and about life. From what I read and hear, he must be a fighter and full of determination. If he could speak, he would probably say he got that from his mommy and daddy!

    May your "lamp" burn bright during this time of uncertainy and may you nestle close to the Lord, finding rest from your weariness during this long journey.

    In Him, Betty Tracy
