A Little Something Extra

The Latest from Jennie

1:30 - Nurse Kim came out to talk with us again. Micah is still on the bypass machine because Dr. G is still working on his valves, which is the most tedious and detailed part of his repair. She's going to come out again at 2:30 to give us another update. Please pray that his valve repair would be finished by then and she's moved on to his ASD.
I'm still in awe of this whole process. Your heart is roughly the size of your fist. So Micah's heart is roughly the size of HIS fist, which, trust me, is not very big. Think four chambers, a couple of holes to repair and a valve to separate into two. And Dr. G's hands are in there working on this (well, okay, her hands are not really in there, but she's guiding instruments that are in there). Thank you, Lord, for gifting surgeons with the skills to fix our little guy's heart.

A prayer:
Father, we lift up Micah to you today. We pray for your continued hand of blessing on this family. Thank you for gifting surgeons and medical staff to take care of him and others in similar situations. In Jesus' Name.

Jennie - Praying for you and looking for an update this afternoon.

We have been thinking of you and praying for you during this time. Praying that God is guiding the surgeons and that Micah's recovery goes well.
