Get On Your Knees For Gideon!

Update- 10:20pm- PRAISE GOD!! Tears of joy and relief!! Just saw a post on Grandpa's facebook. Surgeon just came in with a smile. Gideon did well! The PDA has been sealed and blood flow immediately began improving!!! Thank you thank you thank you for lifting Gideon and his family up and fighting for his life with your prayers! Don't stop he still has a long way to go...

Update- as of 9:10pm (CST) they are just now starting the surgery! Pray for Gideon to stay strong and stable! Pray for everything to go smoothly and safely! Fight Gideon fight!!

Update: Just saw a note from Reghan- Gideon's mommy- that he stabilized sometime in the night. She said the doctors had no idea how as they had done everything they could! Praise the Lord!! Pray that he stays stable through the surgery!!

Update: Gideon is fighting... His surgery is scheduled for 4pm (cst) this afternoon. Pray that he fights hard. Making it through this surgery will be huge for him. I will update as soon as I know anything. "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me..." Lord bring supernatural strength for Gideon . . . Thank you all so much for praying for this precious little boy.

I was going to do a Jimmie blog today, but I received an update this morning on baby Gideon.

He is not doing well. Reghan and Kaleb were called up to the hospital last night. He is very weak and they were not sure he would make it through the night. He needs heart surgery to close his PDA, but they are not sure if they can do it because of how poorly he's doing. Reghan's sister sent me a message this morning saying she hadn't heard anything since 5am. The surgery is scheduled for this afternoon.

Please pray for Gideon and this precious family!!! Fight Gideon Fight!!

I'll update when I hear anything.

Love,
Amber

  1. Please let us know when you hear how everything goes. We were once in the same situation, and not knowing if we'd hold her again after surgery was such an unbearable feeling. Thankfully she made it through, but I know the power of prayer is what saw her through it. We will be praying and lighting candles for that sweet little baby and the family.
