was born last August with 2 holes in his heart. He had an Echocardiogram and ECG yesterday at Sick Children's hospital in Toronto. He will require open heart surgery to repair the larger of the 2 holes. The smaller hole is not a major concern and will probably not need medical intervention.
I just received the following news from his father, my nephew Tony.
Hi Everyone: Theresa called me at work about a hour ago. Sick Kids called and they've moved the Pre-Op to tomorrow (Thurs. June 5). The surgical coordinator will find us at Sick Kids tomorrow and tell us if the surgery will be this Friday (June 6) or Thurs. June 12 as originally planned. Please pray for us as we're in crunch mode and feeling quite stressed and rushed. Thanks again for all your prayers and support. Tony
Ben is pictured here with his 2 older brothers, Caleb who will be 5 in August and Noah who just turned 4 in April.
Needless to say, he is on the top of my prayer list. Won't you pray for him too?
