Say A Pray For Stellan

Stellan needs your prayers. He was taken to the ER last night due to a prolonged episode of SVT. It seems he is experiencing an immense amount of time at this dangerous rate - 9 hours. The doctors have attempted 2 different drugs last night to try and calm Stellan heart beats without success. The last update we have received is they're currently trying a 3rd drug. The difficult challenge seems to be finding a medication that solves this issue of the heart beating too fast. All of these SVT bouts will cause heart function failure as time goes by. Please pray that Stellan isn't experiencing too much discomfortable during these times and that his heart may be healed.

Praying for Stellan. Thanks for the nice comment you left on my blog. I am sorry to hear about your brother. CDH is an awful birth defect. It so surreal to expeience. Sometimes the last few months seem like a nightmare.. something I haven't lived, but just read about or watched. I do feel blessed though.
You have a beautiful family and a great blog. :-) I can't wait to see the sunset picture for your brother. Carly is amazing.
