PRAYER FOR BABY PACEY MOORE


Happening Now at EVERYWHERE--YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO ANY WHERE--JUST PLEASE PRAY FOR THIS BABY AND HIS FAMILY

Baby Pacey Moore is the 3 month old son of Jarrett and Brandi Moore. Brandi just had 2 different gallbladder surgeries due to stones being in two different places. The day after her surgery, Baby Pacey was admitted in the hospital at TRMC for having RSV. A few days later, he was flown out to Cabell Huntington Hospital due to breathing trouble and he was placed on a ventilator. After getting him there they found out he also had... developed pneumonia. He started doing some better and they started trying to turn the ventilator down and then had to turn it back up. He now has a feeding tube and has had a set back. Now they are afraid that he is bleeding internally and his blood is clotting too fast. This family and this baby REALLY needs everyone’s prayers.
