If you don't mind keeping him in you prayers


See this little beauty! He's a tough guy. He's minutes old and holding his head up looking around...

He's my new nephew!

We just found out not an hour ago that one side of his heart is over compensating for the other side of his heart and him and his daddy are being life flighted up to a big hospital where they will be performing surgery on him.

I sit here with tears streaming down my face... and a prayer chanting over and over in my heart. It's my youngest sisters baby... she delivered him not even 12 hours ago all natural with no medicine... it took them TWO years and a lot of struggle and heartache to finally get this little tough guy here...

I had another post ready for today... was working on it when I got this news.

So if you will just keep him in your prayers today?

Lots of love guys.

I hope that things work out for your sister's little family! Where are they going for the surgery? You know I am at PCMC in SLC right!?!

Hopie said...

I know because of personal experiences that he is in the best place possible. Miracles DO happen and faith can heal. Hang in there. I know it's hard to see it from afar.

Malea said...

He looks so strong already you can tell he fought to come to this world, to be with these parents and he's not going to give up his fight too easily!!

These little ones are so much stronger than we know!!

Blessings to your family :D

happy to add my prayers to the effort.

My little nephew went through a similar heart issue 5 years ago - life flighted to Children's in Salt Lake during the Olympics... he starts kindergarten next month :) Here's to your guys' outcome being JUST as wonderful!

Amanda said...

I have tears too.

Good luck little guy!

Mandi just called me to tell me- I cried at the store, and I'm still crying at work. I can't stop thinking about them, and my prayers are with all of you guys. Krystal & Derrick are very special people- and this little guy is amazing.

Missty said...

Like I twitted. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Horrible news. He's definitely in my thoughts.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

You guys I am letting them know of your responses and they are SO thankful.

It's really really bad...

T said...

hey, I'm a dork - I meant seven years ago during the olympics... and he's starting second grade - does it show you how NORMAL he is now that I get him confused with other cousins?

Oh Shell don't say that:(

Zu said...

What a sweetheart! He is most definitely in my prayers along with your family. *hugs*

Just Jules said...

Oh God has a special place for babies in his heart. He takes extra time and care for them. Babies are incredibly resilient and amazingly fast healers.

I sat in a NICU for weeks and weeks on end watching baby after baby endure procedures and have a new amazement for the fighting spirit these wee ones are born with.

A prayer has been on repeat in my brain and will continue to be.

PJ - Our life said...

I heard from Dance Master. Have you gotten any news lately? I hope everything turns out for the cute little guy!

tiffany said...

Tons and tons of prayers being said, please keep us updated. He's soooo beautiful!!!!!!

Jamey said...

He is in my prayers! I grew up with Derek, and I hope everything goes well for their family. Let them know of our thoughts and prayers.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Like Crash always says, God hangs out in the hospital more than the temple. My prayers will be added.

Natalie Sue said...

Oh hard, oh tears! I am praying so hard for her and your whole family. That's such a scary thing. But if he's at PCMC, they will take good care of him! I live 15 minutes away form there, is there anything I can do?! Seriously, anything!!!

H.K. said...

I am so sorry! I will definitely include him our prayers and when I go to the temple, I'll put his name on the prayer roll.

Mommies-Miracles said...

Praying hard, my thoughts are with your family at this time!

Debbie said...

Cute little guy, we'll sure pray hard for him. Keep us posted. So hard for your family.

April said...

Oh Shelle, this just touched my heartstrings! He is so precious. I will be praying so hard for him and for your family!

Oh as Crash would say, my eyes are sweating.

What a sweet little thing! Our prayers will be with him!

Hugs from Alaska!

Kritta22 said...

I just gotta say, he lived nine months with that little heart doing its job. The doctors will fix it so it works better.
He's a trooper so far! he'll be great!

My heart is already broken (literally) so it can't break anymore, but I do feel for you and your family. For someone so innocent and gorgeous. The little guy and your whole family are in my thoughts. Don't forget to give us an update.

Awww look at that little face! That must be so scary. I will keep him in my prayers and your family too!

vixen kitten said...

What a beautiful baby! I am so sorry your family is facing all this right now. How scary it must all be.

I will tell you I believe strongly in the power of prayer, and you have mine. I will be holding this little boy, your entire family, and all the medical staff involved, closely in prayer.

*hugs*
