The surgery is over

So, my nephew is out (I don't know how cardiac surgeons can stand it, these things go on for so long) and the surgery went well. Great thanks to God and to you all for praying and for your interest in, and concern for, this little fellow. His recovery may be slow, and still requires prayer, but the worst is now over. Apparently his VSD was huge and his aortic arch was tight, so he is not going to know why life is so easy when he recovers.

In thanks, here is a song. It's a dodgy live recording, but I like it. As it says on the youtube "The song, which was featured in the 1995 family film "Babe," adapts the main theme of one of the movements from Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78, by Camille Saint-Saëns". But here it is played very nicely on guitar.

I'm glad to hear that all went well with the surgeries for your nephew. He is such a beautiful baby and has gone through so much in his short life. I will keep him on my prayer list (and you and your family, too).
Wishing you all God's love and blessings.

Thanks so much Judith. It's wonderful thing to know that people the world over, who've never met him, have taken the time to pray.

They have been told to expect his recovery to be slower than normal, as I think there has been a lot of pressure on his heart and lungs, and they now need to adjust the changes and be working properly, but the poor little thing will hopefully feel like a million dollars when he does recover.

Thanks again for your prayers and for the message. xo Ali
