Hey Guys, hope all is well.
Sorry I have not been around much. Since a couple of you asked what was up, I figured I would let everyone know.
A couple weeks ago we took my son Collin (5 yrs. old) to the doctor for a fever. They checked his blood pressure and it was through the roof. They told us to rush him to the ER. We got to the ER and they started running some tests. Unsure of what the problem was, they ended up admitting him over night. After a long night of blood work, xrays, EKG, ultra sounds etc. they determined he has a problem with his heart. They said he had the problem since birth but it wasn’t noticeable until now because he had the flu and strep and his heart was overworking. The condition http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coarctation_of_the_aorta
will require surgery to repair. He is going in for an MRI next week to get some better pictures of what they’re dealing with and he will have the operation during the first week of April.
It’s been a rough couple weeks and will probably only get harder during surgery time. The doctors expect everything to go smooth with no complications and Collin will make a quick recovery.
Your prayers are much appreciated.
