    Can I ask for some help/prayers?

    My ten year old grandson, Bodee, underwent open heart surgery today. He was diagnosed with a hole in one of his heart chambers several years ago and the doctors wanted to see if it would close on its own. It did partially, but surgery was finally decided on. I talked to him about a couple of weeks ago, trying to alleviate any fears a child might have. Know what his response was? "Well, if it needs to be done let's do it. God will protect me." How can you argue with that?

    He's an extremely intelligent, open little guy, with more compassion than most adults have. He's always concerned about everyone ELSE rather than himself. He's also a darn good shot with the little .22 pump rifle I gave him some months ago. He's going to grow up to be a real man.

    He is currently in the ICU and the prognosis looks pretty good, but "Pops" (grandpa) still worries about everything.

    Thanks everyone, and God bless.

    Pops; Praying that Bodee heals up and bounces back. He's got the right perspective. Great to know you do to. God is so great!

    Prayers for Bodee. Sounds like he has exactly the right mind set for getting through something like this but stuff like this is always especially troubling to us when it's a little one. Keep us posted.

    Lord, I ask for healing for Bodee as the procedure is probably over. If not I also pray for the hands and minds of the surgeons who are operating on him.

    Praying for Bodee. I have sympathy with you and your family. I will testify to having the same condition. Dr. told my Mother that I would not live to 14 year old. Boy, did that ever cause me problems and the Dr. was proved to be wrong. My hole in the heart was blocked with a wall flap that grew across the hole. Now look at me, at 86 years old and still going . There were some other problems like Mitral valve prolapse that I learned to deal with. Bodees's surgery will be a permanent fix .I pray that he comes through the surgery with no complications and that God is with the surgeon and Bodee. We have made a lot of progress in the medical profession since back in my day. Praise God.

    Your grandson sounds like a very special young man - who has a loving and caring grandpa. Having had open heart surgery myself, he certainly has the right outlook and he will soon be past it and on the road to recovery and may the two of you be blessed with many more years of making memories. He, you and all of your family are in our prayers. Rest assured he is being watched over and let us know how how he - and you - are doing.
