Prayer Request: My Son Is Having Open Heart Surgery Today.

Andrew 2012/02/07 11:39:30
For those of you who believe in Jesus Christ and His power to answer prayer, I request that today you ask God to be with the doctors and our family as my son has open heart surgery. He was born 23 years ago with 6 major heart defects. We are thankful to God for blessing our home with our son and have had many opportunities to be a comfort and encouragement to many others who have had children in similar circumstances. We know that there are no accidents with God and are at peace with whatever the outcome might be. We ask that God might receive the glory for all that is accomplished. Personally, we pray for my son's complete recovery. Doctors hope to be able to improve his blood oxygen level so that he is able to physical perform better. He wil spend a minimum of three days in ICU and another week in the cardiac unit. After this surgery, the last resort will be a transplant.

In all likelihood, I will be offline for at least three to four days. I'll miss you all, but will be back to continue the fight to save our nation from those who would destroy it!
You!

    Son is doing great! Came home after a week and went to his first follow up appointment yesterday. Aside from a rash, because he is allergic to the glue they use in place of stitches, he's doing great. Oxygen sats are up in the mid 90's which is an incredible improvement! Thanks for your thoughts and prayers!
