My Testimony for Christ regarding my newborn Son baby Oliver Emmanuel Touchton who was in NICU!
I had confessed and meditated Gods word during my pregnancy to create my childís every part to be normal and perfect and I was praying on my baby . Every medical report was normal regarding my baby till the end. I was suppose to deliver the baby on 5th of Dec,2012.But Dr had a feeling that I should do my c section on 27.11.2012. On 26.11.12 at 12 pm Dr told me to do final scan before c section. When I did , the Dr. told me to go immediately to do emergency c section . So we went immediately went , and the baby boy by name Oliver Emmanuel Touchton was delivered on 26.11.12 ,at 4.15 pm Indian time. When the baby was born there was no cry, no heartbeat, no breathing, He was resuscitated back and immediately put on oxygen. He was breathing on his on, but not fully. When he breaths in and then exhales co2, not all co2 is coming out, so his body is storing co2. The storing of the co2 and not breathing and the heart not working at birth damaged his kidneys, liver, and caused some pressure on his heart which is called cardiomelagy. Also causing him to retain body fluid all over his small body making him look puffy. So he was taken to a separate hospital only 5minutes from where he was born.
And placed in NICU. The Doctors there started immediately and found kidney damage, liver damage, Lungs putting pressure on heart, co2 build up in blood and organs. The co2 build up in his blood has caused his ph to become low which also has caused some damage to his organs. The doctors ran brain scan an echo cardio and found brain ok and heart ok with the exception of the pressure on the heart. He is currently still on the ventilator at 40% . His kidneys are now functioning normal lever is improving, pressure on heart improved, sugar levels stabilizing. He has edema and itís very slowly coming down. His phosphorus count is low at 0.4 and needs to be 1.5. His platelet count is extremely low @ 26,000 and needs to be 150,000. He was given a plasma and protein transfusion yesterday. Heís not able to take and digest breast milk so he has some abdominal swelling. Overall he is improving, but very slow. My baby boy desperately and urgently need of prayers and healing and fast recovery in the name of Jesus Christ. It has been 7 days I am not with my baby ,baby lives in different hospital and I was discharged from another hosipital, I feel lonely miss my baby , hurts that I and my family cant be with baby.
He has low phosphorus count, and low platelet count, which causes edema and metobolic problems including problems in lever etc.Please pray for him that platelate count should be normal in Jesus name. Right now his platelet count is 8000 ,it should be atleast 1lakh. His body has too much fluid .If platelet counts becomes high or normal,His edema will disapper, phosphorus will come back normal and he will getter better in many things. Kindly pray and ask prayers warriers to pray for his healing for all his internal organs .Amen
Today is Dec 4th 2012, compared to yesterday ,my baby oliver emmanuel is doing better, his heart beat is stable,brain is perfect from beginning, liver is improving ,platelet count from 8000 to 31,000 has increased after transfusion . phosphorus level from 0.4 to 0.5 increased but it has to be at least 0.8 to 1.05. Edema has decreased, breathing is stable, glucose is stable, BP isnormal, If platelet count is normal whiah is 1,50,000 edema goes away, he will be healthier, his metabolic system will be all right. Everything gets right with him.
To day is 5th of Dec, yesterday they did platelet transfusion, his platelet counts went up to 86,000 and today it has dropped to 45,000. The normal platelet level is 150,000 to 450,000. This is considered normal. When platelets go down, protein level, phosphorus level comes down. Right now his readings are below normal. His whole body is filled with fluid and swelling because of this which is called edema and still he is in NICU on ventilator. Rest of the body organs are improving by the grace of God. I was praying that blood culture report and all medical reports to be normal and my son to be recovered from all kinds of physical complication he is having now. Please I need mercy, Lord God have mercy on my baby, Give him a life of God, heal him and save him from death. Bless him to declare the works of God. Amen.
In Jesus name I command his edema to go away from his body and never to return back. May his Blood be cleansed with the Blood of Jesus Christ.
I hold the Blood of Jesus Christ against Low platelet count, Low phosphorus level, and low protein level. Amen.
Today is 6th Just now I came from hospital after seeing the baby ,its 9.15pm night, Baby's edema has reduced a lot. his phosphorus level went up from 1.9 to 2.4. calcium from 9.3 to 9,protein level is 4.1. Blood culture report will come tomorrow. overall he is doing good except platelet count should come up at least 150,000. Since it was 45,000 its should not drop. Dr. Krishnan said they will remove him from ventilator tomorrow, I and many people all over the world were interceding over my son that He will breathe by himself without any problem and everything concerned about my baby Oliver Emmanuel to be normal In Jesus Name. Amen What I heard from Doctor was, that he has enlarge heart which is taken most of his space in his chest, and lungs are small and there is fluid in between because of edema, so when he expands his lungs, he cant breathe properly because of big heart and fluid in between..
Today is 7th,By everyoneís prayers he is doing better, his platelet count went up to 50,000 by Gods grace, his phosphorus and protein level went up high a bit. He is off the ventilator from 3pm,, breathing on his own by Gods grace but still he was in need of more prayers and miracles in my sonís life.
Today 8th Morning, 10 am Oliver had been breathing by himself off the ventilator till now from yesterday 3pm, without support of ventilator.Dr. said he is struggling to breathe ,instead of exhaling carbon dioxide ,he is storing in his body which will damage his internal parts. So they have put back him on ventilator again. Also there is fluid in his body, which has to come out, which will help his lungs to xpand.Platelet increased to 52,000 which is good. I am not that happy today because he went back again on ventilator, so that he cane inhale oxygen and exhale co2. Inhaling oxygen is good but he is having difficulty to exhale co2..Please pray that he is able to exhale co2, without support of ventilator. May the infection in his body disappears, pray more ,need more miracles, in his breathing, edema to disappear and pray that there is no pressure from pulmonary arterial on his heart and lungs. Pray for his divine healing. Please friends do not stop praying for him. Thanks a lot !

Dec 24th 20012, Oliver was doing good with stable platelets, he was able to breathe without the help of ventilator and oxygen, all his internal organs are healing, so he has shifted to ward 2 days ago and was suppose to get discharged on 25th for Christmas,but on 24th night he was shifted back to NICU as he was lethargic, had fever not drinking milk properly and oxygen saturation was in 80ís instead of in 90ís. I was waiting in ward that he will come back soon, but he stayed their upto 30st of Dec 2012 in Nicu again, later found that he had stones in Gall bladder and kidney . After 5 says in ward I discharged myself back to home because it was getting too expensive to stay ,since we already spent too much and yet to spend too much for his health and we were in shortage of money and my mother helped us financially.
Dec 30th 2012: He was shifted to ward again as he was doing better in the NICU, and later in the ward also he was good with 95 above oxygen saturation and was discharged on Jan 1st 2013 to home with Oliver. It was a happy day in our lives.
9th Jan 2013: we were going to hospital for follow ups , found out that he had hypercalcimia which was 18.6 and doctor told to admit him again because it was the rarest and life threatening disease. Again he was getting treatment by Dr. V Krishnan who is a Neotalogist and pediatrician and I was in the ward for whole time, his calcium level was still high when medication given it comes down and after few hours again its high, so Oliver had a baptism on January 13th which was Baptism of the Lord that day, Doctor V. Krishnan gave an 1 hour permission to baptize him and bring back to hospital, we did baptism and bought him back to hospital, and he was discharged on 15th as his calcium level was normal. Again we went for follow ups ,by the grace of God its normal.
I had made a vow in the Infant Jesus Church,Viveknagar ,Bangalore that when my baby was in NICU. I went to this church alone without baby with much pain in my heart and I prayed God to heal my son completely and I will come back to Church with my baby .As promised on 17th Jan 2013 we whole family went to this church gave a thanks giving mass and said our testimony for God healing our Son Oliver Emmanuel. Through this experience, I have had to heavily focus on the subjects of FAITH and HEALING. I never departed my faith in Christ. I keep on praying ,crying to God to save my child from the terrible sickness he had been suffering. My little babyís body is full of pricks ,everyday there were pricks for blood samples, Ivís, canulaís glucose tests, dozens of tests performed on my son by doctors, everyone said his condition was critical and its not their in their hands. But I know My son will live in perfect health and be a testimony for Christ. Everyday I called and sent prayer requests to prayer warriors, all kinds of Christian denominations, pastors, priests all over the world, many church people came and prayed over my son in the hospital by laying their hands. Every minute I was pleading the Blood of Jesus Christ on my sonsís sickness. By the stripes of Jesus Christ my Son is completely healed and has a new life in Christ to declare the miracles of God. Now he is happy with us at home and we whole family are testimony for Christ and our prayers and belief in God has strengthened even more. The NAME OF JESUS CHRIST and his BLOOD, and the WORD OF GOD is more power in the world. The name of JESUS is above ALL other names, (Eph 1:21 & Phil 2:9). God sent His Word to heal my son , and His word works. I thank and praise God for providing great health, healings, protections grace, peace, blessings, provisions, and favor upon my son and on our whole family. Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Word to deliver my son from all sickness and disease.
