So, I normally don't share a whole lot of personal stuff on this blog, but today I am. I love that this blog has created a whole new family for me. I really do see you as my quilting family. And well, right now, I need a little favor from ya all.
Some of you might recall from this post that I recently finished a baby boy quilt for my sweet little nephew that was soon to be expected. Well, David arrived last Wednesday. Here he is in his first few hours with his mommy. That's my twin sister, Jen :) Isn't he just adorable!! Everything seemed to be perfect but the next day the family got some sad news.
During his routine check-up a heart murmur was detected. Tests were run and showed that David has coarctation of the aorta and two holes in his heart, ASD, and VSD. He was transferred to the Children's Hospital and has been awaiting his surgery day. This morning he is undergoing open heart surgery to fix the above mentioned problems.
It has been a long hard week for David and his parents. We are praying that everything goes well with his surgery and that his recovery will be smooth and hopefully no further surgeries will be needed. So, the favor. Could you please keep this little guy in your thoughts and prayers today. Thank you and know that is is so greatly appreciated by me and his parents :)
P.S. I am away from my computer this weekend and so I won't be able to respond to your comments right away but I will be sure to give an update on David Sunday evening. Thank you again :)
