Please Pray for Our Sick Baby!

Originally posted December 17, 2008

We went to get a sonogram today for our baby thinking we would leave overjoyed with the knowledge of whether to paint the nursery pink or blue. Instead we found ourselves sitting across the table from a fetal cardiologist explaining to us that one of the valves in his heart hasn’t formed correctly and there is a 20-25% chance that he won’t make it to term. The other scenario is that he does make it to term and immediately has to undergo surgery to enable his heart to work. He would then have to undergo two more surgeries, one at 4-6 months and one at 3 years, to basically shut down the lower half of his heart and enable him to live on two heart chambers instead of four. After that he could live a normal life and do everything that other kids do, except he will never make a professional athlete. Considering his father, that was a slim possibility at best.

We would ask all of you to pray for our son. Pray that his heart gets stronger and that he is able to make it to term. Pray that Rachael and I have the strength to get through this. There is nothing we can do, but we serve a God who can do anything.
