Surgery Day - Please Pray!

Tomorrow, April 6th, is the day our precious Samuel David was due, and now it is also the day that he will have open heart surgery. First thing tomorrow morning (around 8am EST) our brave little warrior will be having open heart surgery to fix his aorta, and possibly put bands around the pulmonary arteries. This surgery will last approximately 3 hours. The recovery from this surgery is complicated by the fact that Samuel has EVC, which makes his chest very small.  Any swelling from the surgery will put extra pressure on his already cramped lungs. In addition, there is some concern that the mitral valve in Samuel's heart is a little small, but they are hopeful that it will be just big enough to handle the proper amount of blood flow.

Y'all have surrounded us with encouragement and prayers throughout this whole journey, and now we need it again. Pray for peace for our hearts, strength and healing for Samuel, and wisdom and steady hands for the surgeon.
We are asking y'all to help us cover Samuel in prayer for 48 hours straight, starting tonight at 8 CST. Please sign up for one or more time slots by clicking on this link:

Please feel free to share this link with others so we can have as many people as possible covering Samuel David in prayer!

Please pray specifically:
  • That God will guide the surgeon's hands, and give him clarity of thought.
  • That the mitral valve in Samuel's heart will be able to handle the proper amount of blood flow.
  • That God will give Samuel strength.
  • That God will provide healing to Samuel's body.
  • That God will give us peace as we wait.
  • That God will continue to use Samuel's story to bring glory to His name, drawing others closer to Himself.
If you would like to email a note of encouragement, verses, a prayer, or anything else for Samuel, Seth, or I, you can send it to
