My son UPDATE: Surgery after July 15th

Postby Surveyorshawn » Sat Jan 10, 2009 6:52 pm

My only son was born on Nov. 11 with a large hole between the 2 ventricles in his heart, and both his ventricular valves on one side, instead of one on each. Also, the left one is significantly smaller than it should be. Needless to say I have been hunting for a miracle instead of for deer this year. The doctors have given us a fair chance with survival after surgery. He is eating well and gaining weight, which is far above what they expected him to be doing. They are hoping to wait until he is 6 months or so old to do the surgery so he will be bigger and stronger. Please remember us. His name is Benaiah (we call him Ben) David O'Steen. His name comes from 2 Samuel 23:20: "Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it." He is chasing his first lion now.

Update from Surveyorshawn.. Please keep them in your prayers..

We are just meeting with the pediatric cardiologists & the pediatric cardiology surgeon. They are running a few more tests. The surgery will hopefully be delayed until he is 6 months or so old. He is gaining weight, which is a good sign. It just takes forever down here, I suppose because it is such a big hospital. At least they let us stay in a room for free until we are done for this go round. Please do remember us, as this is a very trying time.

Please remember us. Benaiah's open heart surgery will be Monday, June 15 at Tulane University Medical Center in New Orleans. We are expecting to have to stay in the hospital for 2 weeks afterwards for his recovery if everything goes well. The hospital has a medical motel we can stay in while he is in ICU, so we have been saving for that & food for a while, since we will obviously be off of work for that entire time. He will be 7 months old on the 11th.
