    That has to be a big relief for you all. You know you all have our support and prayers for a fast and complete recovery. Like Mikey says, that is a lot for a young 'un to go through.

    Just makes me hold my little ones all the closer, asthma and autism don't seem quite as scary now. Glad for the news, Scoob :thumb:

    I have posted a prayer request for him on my forum and am asking also the same for my pastor.
    You all are a fairly civil crowd so I dont mind asking a favor.

    My friend and pastor needs a heart transplant and prayer.

    Could you or some of you leave a note of encouragement for him?

    I would count it a personal favor. I am sure he will here of it.

    log on to :

    Look in the sub forum for the prayer request for Scoobyloven's boy also.

    Lord your healing hand has touched this boy. I ask that your mighty hand suround him and his family that you would guide the doctors and nurses to cure him and bring him to a full recovery and that to you be the glory for this mighty miracle of healing and recovery.
    Thanks be to God

    well guys it has been busy here my son is still in p i c u he is on heliox it is a mix of 80% helioum and 20%oxygen they are telling us he is going to be their for a while in the unit . he is doing better but his breathing is tuch and go. they went to see if it would get better on it's own. they are haveing some more surgens come in this week to look at his air way their is a risk of him going back on the vent. or worse having a trake put in well see what they say. this haven't been his year. we hope he don't need any more done. but the dr's are calling him a very special boy going trough 2 surgery's in only 4 days one puting in a g tube and the other to save his life and remove 1/2 of his small intestine and getting what is called a ieostomy. and now they are talking about doing this to him :( well guys he is a fighter and he is getting better slowly.

    well guys here is his care page from the hospital. it is updated when we are their are photos of him on their "but they are not easy to look at they are a tear bringer. you would need to sign up to view but you all are welcome to view and be updated. you will be emailed everytime it is updated.
