I realized I had asked for prayers for a friends grandson a few weeks ago and never posted an update. He is still hanging in there but still in ICNU. His first surgery was a frightening one as it was a 3 part surgery and the first 2 procedures went smooth but when they had to put the stent into the valve he went into cardiac arrest and they worked on him for 30 minutes but was able to bring him back. He had to have surgery again yesterday as his open heart surgery incision was infected so they had to open him back up again and clean him out and put the drain tubes back in him. He has improved since then some and they are slowly feeding him through a tube a little more at a time and he seems to be tolerating it.
This is beautiful baby Gavin. He was born a little over 3 weeks ago and has already had 3 surgeries already so please pray for him. They are talking now about the option of a heart transplant if he doesn't tolerate being off all the machines.
