Update on Fatiya
I had asked for prayer for this little girl who was scheduled for heart surgery. Following a series of tests before the surgery, the surgical team decided not to proceed with the operation. The doctors were concerned that they would not be able to control her breathing both before and after her surgery and that the risks were too high. After a CT scan the doctors determined that the facial cranial surgery should be completed first. The neurosurgeons haven't had much experience with Aperts Syndrome so the way forward is not clear. Please continue to pray for this little girl and her mother who was understandably very shaken by these developments. Pray too for our staff who are faced with the emotional strain of seeking what is best for these children.
