This is an urgent prayer request!

Please, PLEASE Pray for Baby Stellan and MckMama's entire family. This sweet baby boy is going into surgery at 8:30 am Boston time tomorrow!

The following are the exact things that MckMama has requested for us to pray about. You can see her full blog by following the "Pray for Stellan!" link on the left.

Would you pray that Dr. A will have wisdom as to if he should move forward with the ablation after the esophageal study? If he does move forward, would you pray that he will have clarity of mind as far as how aggressive to be with the ablation in order to fix Stellan's problem without putting him at undue risk for complications. Would you pray that the tiny catheters the doctors use will not nick Stellan's coronary artery? Would you pray for peace for me and my husband? Would you pray that heart block will not occur during the surgery? Would you pray that the extra pathways Stellan has will be located and successfully destroyed? Will you pray that, if they need to go through his septum, that it will heal as it should? Would you pray that in the days after the surgery (In infants, coronary damage sometimes doesn't appear for up to three days, so we'll be here for the rest of the week at least it looks.) we will cling to Jesus and not to fear?

I am almost in tears just writing this post. I feel so connected to this family, even though I've only been reading her blog for a few months. I seriously am going to lose sleep over this sweet baby boy tonight!

PLEASE take a moment and pray for this family! Reading Mckmama's twitter posts, I know that there is no way I could go through what she's going through and not be going insane!

Dear Lord, tonight I just beseech you on the behalf of baby Stellan and Mckmama and her entire family. Please dear Lord, guide the surgeons hands. Allow them to have clear eyes, a clear mind and perform a safe surgery. Give Mckmama a peace that passes all understanding. Allow her and her entire family to stay sane and to stay calm for their precious baby boy. And Lord, please place your hands upon Stellan and heal his body through the surgeons. Lord, we want Stellan to LIVE! And we know that whatever the outcome of this surgery, he WILL live, either here on earth with us, or in heaven with you... but Lord we just pray that your will be done. We thank you for the blessings you reign down upon us. It's in your son's name that we pray.
