Please pray for this little guy today, and in the next few days. He is going to have open heart surgery at the University of Kentucky Children's hospital early tomorrow morning. You can read more about the procedure and why he is having the surgeon at Athan's Journey (www.athansjourney.blogspot.com). His parents started this blog when he was just days old, and had to be admitted to the hospital for an extended amount of time. This precious baby boy has grown leaps and bounds over the past 11 months, and we can't wait to celebrate his 1st birthday on May 29th.
Please pray for his parents, our dear friends Ryan and Amberly Strebeck, that they may be comforted in this time. Please pray for his 3 year old big sister, Morgan, that she would know her baby brother is going to be ok. Please pray for Athan's grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other family members for safe travel as they journey to Kentucky to be with the Strebecks over the next few weeks. Please pray for his surgeon, Dr. Plunkett, as he prepares for and completes the surgery. And please pray for Athan, that God will be with him (as He has been since he was in Amber's womb) that he will come through this procedure stronger than ever, that his heart will be made whole.
