Our prayers are working!

Stellan is doing better, but not completely out of the woods.  Please continue to pray that the meds will work, the side effects will be minimal, and that he will break out of SVT for good.
 
MckMama's recent blog made a plea for help.  Not for her family, but for families that we can touch.  This makes me think about the ministry of the church and our place to help families in need.  Our hospital here doesn't have a NICU, so we don't see those families who are distraught with worry, worn out, exhausted, and sick over their ailing infants, but we do see it in the waiting rooms, and hallways.  There are things that we could choose to see each day.  There are things that we can do. 
 
I encourage you to keep in touch with your local church, keep your eyes open for prayer requests for families dealing with illness, and do what you feel led to do.  It may be to make a home cooked meal and take it to the waiting room, it may be a video for the family to enjoy together that can take their minds away to a fairytale land for a brief time, it may be a cookie bouquet to brighten the room, it could be money, it could be volunteering your time at the local hospital or clinic or any number of things that God will lead you to do. 
 
I am so thankful that I haven't faced having a sick child and I pray that it is something that I don't have to know the heartache of, but I do know that there are people who need us, they are praying for us to meet that need for their family.  God will use you, if you open your heart, mind, and schedule and let Him.

I don't them, or you, but have been praying for him and his family.
