If anyone can say a prayer for my son I would greatly appreciate it. Tomorrow we head back to CHOP to see his cardiologist. He has a dialted aorta and we are hoping that he is growing into it. If he isnt he either will get put on medication, he will get a beta blocker, or if its too bad he will have to have the surgery.

My poor baby has gone thru so much already. I am praying that he doesnt need medication or surgery.

Thank you in advance to all of you who can include him in your prayers.

I will put him on our church prayer network, there are dozens of people praying every evening for the intentions that come through. I will also includ him in my prayers also.

Prayer said!

If it helps any, we were told this year that our son (who had open-heart surgery at 9 years ago) that he now has a dilated aorta and mitral valve prolapse. This was told to us by the doctor who replaced the cardiologist who had taken care of him since he was 7 weeks old.

We went back to the old cardiologist (who had moved 2 hours away), who disagreed with the new cardiologist. He said that since DS had had open-heart surgery through the aorta, it was expected that it appear slightly dilated, but that even so, he wouldn't call it a dilated aorta. He also went over measurements and definitions and explained in great detail why he didn't think DS had mitral valve prolapse, either.

Perhaps your cardiologist is being ultra-cautious? It might not hurt to get a second opinion. Our DS's cardiologist is in Danville,PA--pm me if you'd like his name--we've always thought he was wonderful. Good luck!

:) I will be happy to pray for you and your son. The little guy has had enough, that is for sure. Little Megan is living proof of the power of prayer-bless her.
Please, everyone pray for our evie too . God bless her too.


COuld you update me on evie? I'm a little out of the loop, I'm afraid...
