LIttle Lockwood 11!!!

Posted by Picasa
Our precious little treasure is here! Eliseo Edward Lockwood arrived Friday, April 11th, 2008 at 8:30 am. He weighed in at 7 lbs 11oz (3.5 kilograms) and was 20 1/2 inches (52 cm.).
Thank you so much for your prayers. Little Eliseo is having trouble breathing, so he's been in an incubator with an iv and oxygen since birth. They said normal respirations per minute in a baby should be 40-50 up to 60. When he was born, Eliseo's rpm were at 90 and then later went up to 120. They were considering transfering him down to La Paz (about 2 1/2 hours south) to a bigger hospital. We really prayed over him and the Lord graciously put his hand upon him; he started improving and was back down to the 80's and 90's this morning.
Please pray that his breathing continues to improve quickly~ we haven't been able to hold him yet nor has Jaynee been able to feed him. Jaynee did really well, and got discharged this morning; she only had to be in the hospital for about 24 hours all together. She was eager to get up and walk so she could go down to the nursery and see our baby.
We named him Eliseo (pronounced Ellie-say-oh) which is Spanish for Elisha. We wanted an Elisha, but thought it would be a bit confusing having an Elijah and Elisha, so we gave him the Spanish name for it.
His middle name is Edward which was the first name of Hermano Lalo. Lalo was our first best friend here in Mexico. He helped us all with our Spanish, loved our children, and was a blessing to us in a place where we often felt very lonely. We met him when we first moved to Mexico; later, when we moved further south, he came for 4 months to work with us. He wanted to come back someday, but had a real burden to see his family saved first, so he went home asking the Lord to use him to lead them to the Saviour. He told a lady at his church that even if it cost him his own life, he would do anything to see him family come to Christ. Last year, he died unexpectedly from a heart attack. He was only 29 year old. At the funeral, his dad and 3 of his sisters got saved.
Please continue to pray for Eliseo. Since she can't feed him yet, Jaynee is going to go home to change, see the other children, and rest for a bit (as she is a bit uncomfortable after the c-section and there are just hard plastic chairs to sit on.) Daniel will stay with the baby and then pick Jaynee up again in the evening to go back to the hospital to stay with him.
Pray he will continue to improve quickly and we can soon bring him home to the family.
Thank you too for praying for Nehemiah; he began to improve Thursday afternoon and has been much better the past couple of days. We know the Lord hears and answers the prayers of His people~ We are resting in Him.


  1. Thank you for the update. Of course, I will pray.

  2. Congratulations!!! Little Eliseo is just precious! What a cutie! I'll be praying for y'all. Giovanni had the exact same thing after he was born (except the doctors decided to put a feeding tube down his nose, instead of using an IV). I remember well how hard it was not to be able to hold him and nurse him! We'll be praying that Eliseo's breathing issues resolve quickly and that you are able to cuddle with him very soon! Also praying for your recovery too, Jaynee!

    Congratulations again on your newest blessing!!

  3. He is so handsome, Jaynee and family!!! Praise the Lord for your safety and Eliseo's in the delivery. I will pray that he will breath normally and can come home quickly. Keep us posted. What a blessing. Cindy

  4. Beautiful baby! I have five children, all c-sections, and I can't even believe that Jaynee went home only after 24 hours in the hospital! Amazing! Granted, I'm sure things in Mexico or much different here in Missouri, but take good care of her and pamper her at home so she has a good recovery. Having a baby in the NICU is true motivation, my second had breathing issues and was also put in an incubator for a short period of time and it killed me not to be able to hold him and nurse him. It felt like forever.

    Praying that little Eliseo can be held by his mommy soon and fed by her as well. Also, praying that she has a health/speedy recovery to take care of her precious family.

    God Bless!

  5. Hello Lockwood Family!

    I found your blog through Smockity Frocks and I wanted to say "Congratulations" on your littlest blessing!

    Our #5 was born Jan. 4 and he wasn't breathing. Within minutes of birth, he began to have seizures (his brain was swelling and was damaged due to lack of oxygen sometime before birth). Before he was 2 hours old, he was transported 2 1/2 south of another hospital that has an NICU. I wasn't able to hold him until about 16 hours later and wasn't able to nurse him until he was 6 days old. We were down there for a total of 9 days, 7 of those days I was by myself with our other 4 children because my husband had to be at work. It was so hard!

    I have a heart, and knowledge, of what you are experiencing and I will defiantly be praying for you and your husband, for your little guy and for his siblings. The Lord is faithful and will give you the strength needed to see this through!
