Prayers for Haven

August 21, 2014

Haven could use your prayers, friends.

On Friday morning, he heads into surgery to have a port placed in his chest so that he can start getting the infusions he needs. These infusions (of a drug called Pamidronate) should help strengthen his bones and muscles.  It should also help reduce fractures, pain, and bone resorption. As of now, they are planning on giving him his first infusion of Pamidronate immediately after surgery.

In addition to the port placement, they will also be doing some blood work and possibly one other minor surgical procedure while he is anesthetized.  (We still aren’t sure if that will take place or not, though.)  

Please pray that the surgery goes smoothly and that his little body handles the first infusion well.  If everything goes as planned, we should be heading home on Friday afternoon.

Thanks SO much, in advance, for your faithful prayers!!

    This sounds like (scary but) great news! I’m so glad there is a drug to help strengthen his bones. He will be in my prayers.
