There was a couple about mine and Nathan's age staying in the room next to us at the Ronald McDonald House. They had a 2 year old little girl and a little boy Grasshopper's age. They are from the Mansfield area. About the same time Grasshopper came here the Mansfield ER sent their little boy here because he had been choking. When they got here the doctors discovered that the little boy had a hole in his heart...this was completely out of the blue for them.
He was stablized and then they had to wait for surgery. He was opperated on yesterday and afterwards they were given a good report. The surgery went fine. Then yesterday afternoon the little boy died. I wasn't able to say goodbye before they left this morning. I would appreciate your prayers for this little family. The mom was really sweet and I can't imagine what it would feel like to go home without your little one.
Please pray for a spirit of peace over Grasshopper in the morning. We're still scheduled to get the tube out. I can't wait to hold him and nurse him. I'm so ready to see him awake again.
