Disappointing News

This is Dana just to let you all know...

My mom just came down to inform me that Gabe is out...and there's bad news. No surgery has been performed today. The doctors discovered through the internal eco (I know it had a WAY fancier name then that but what it is, you'd have to ask my mom) that Gabe has 4-5 holes in his if he'd been "blasted by a shotgun" in the words of Mom.
So, thank you all for your prayers, and PLEASE continue to pray as we go about rescheduling for open heart surgery.

I praise God that He has given me and my family the assurance that He does ALL THINGS WELL and for the good of those who love Him.

Oh boy. I am sorry that Gabe has to go through all of this. He must be a pretty sturdy guy if none of the other holes were evident and he had no complications.

continue to pray for Gabe and you, that all goes well

Hugs, Lynn

I'm so sorry for the discouraging news. Praying for healing & good things for Gabe, and peace & comfort for your family--especially your mom. These things are especially tough on moms.
