*Update on Baby Isaac 1/29/18
Isaac has rested today and opened his eyes a couple of times. We’ve seen movement in his arms and legs. We are so excited for every little positive sign!
He did have his MRI earlier today. The doctors advised that his brain is severely damaged. The areas that control walking, talking, short term memory and vision are all damaged.
All his other organs are working so well. He is getting breast milk continuously and doing great with that. He does have moments where he takes a breath on his own.
Please continue to pray for complete healing of his brain.
We know God is the ultimate healer and fully believe his brain can and will be completely healed. Pray along with us for healing of our sweet Isaac.

Oh Jesus, Eternal Word, You are wonderful in all your ways. You are infinite in mercy and truth. We thank you for your handmaid, Mother Angelica of Alabama, and the countless souls that she brought to the Catholic Church from all across the globe. In this most difficult hour, we beg of you, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Mother Angelica, the full and complete healing of Baby Isaac and his brain. Jesus, we trust in You. Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, Have Mercy on us and on the whole world. Mother Angelica, pray for us.
(For nine days, say the above prayer and then one Our Father, one Hail Mary and one Glory Be for the miraculous and full healing of Baby Isaac.)
