Big prayers for little H.

We're really needing each and everyone's support in prayers throughout the rest of this week. Our good friends, Bo and Geneva brought sweet baby Hudson into this world this past July. He's such a little gift, straight from God, and has blessed Bo and Neeva to no end...not to mention all of his "Aunts and Uncles," myself generously included. This little man is so wonderful....such a delight...and he needs all the prayer and support he can get at the moment.

Baby Hudson will be undergoing an extensive open-heart surgery this coming Thursday, November 19 in Cincinnati, Ohio. This sweet baby boy was born with a heart that simply doesn't function properly, which can be a common health concern among down syndrome infants. My heart hurts...so much...for baby H...and his parents. Life has a tendency of throwing us challenges, and I know this surgery must be one of the biggest for such wonderful, loving parents.

Please pray that the surgery on Thursday will be performed perfectly...that the surgeon's and nurses' hands will be blessed, and that baby H and his heart will be blessed with an undeniable strength....that he will endure the surgery just fine...and have an incredibly fast, smooth and blessed recovery.

Please pray that Bo and Geneva will find absolute peace in their hearts and their minds the rest of this week, especially on Thursday. Pray that there will be no fear...only excitement and anticipation to be able to raise a healthy baby boy with a strong heart that functions perfectly. Please, please...pray for the Harris family. And if prayer isn't quite your style, please, please keep them in your thoughts.

thank you all SO much for your thoughts and prayers!! As I mentioned before, Hudson made it through his surgery okay. However, down syndrome babies metabolize medicine really quickly, so his pain medicine wears off to fast, leaving him squirming in pain, prolonging the healing process. Please pray for his pain to be taken away and for him to heal rapidly!
