Melissa Beamon's son name is James. Here is a little about them.

I gave birth to a baby boy...James on January 6, 2010.
He was diagnosed at 35weeks gestation with a RCDH and was born 36 weeks. He wasn't expected to live thru the night, however he is a fighter and has held on. He truly is our little miracle. He was on the ECMO machine for 12 days, had corrective surgery day 9 of life and then just had a trache 2 weeks ago. He is 5 months old and is still in the NICU.

Updates (June 22)

James had to go back on the vent lastnight. Prayers please!

Today (June 23rd) she wrote:

James is getting better. He had an infection brewing in his trache. They started antibiotics and he is now back down to 35% 02. Still on vent, but breathing A LOT easier! Thank y'all from the bottom of my heart for your thoughts and prayers. He is supposed to have surgery tomorrow to have a G-J Tube (feeding tube). Keep your prayers coming for him please.

Please keep her and her 2 sons, James and 3yr old Billy, in your prayers.
