The latest we were told is that Witt is first which means he will be taken 6:30 -7:00. That's if everything goes as planned! Please pray for Witt, Melanie and Austan. I can't imagine what this is like as a parent. I will post updates as I can. Right now I know the surgeon is going open Witt's chest by going in through the sternum, will remove the sac around the heart and look at the mitral valve with a scope down Witt's throat. The surgeon will decide right then whether or not to do any sort of procedure on the mitral valve. If he does, Witt will be put on the heart bypass machine, his heart stopped and the valve worked on. This would also make Witt's recovery time longer and more difficult. Please, Lord, surprise the doctors by how good the valve looks! Let it be evident that Witt has been touched by his Creator, by the hand of the Living God...all glory and honor is Yours!!

Amen. Lord, I pray you lift this family up and give direction to the surgeon's hands. I pray that Witt's heart will need no more than You allow. Thank you Lord for the blessings You have given this family in the gift of Witt.

Praying and knowing that God is in total control. He is the Great Physician. HE is the Jehovah Rapha, the Healer. HE is our rock.
I trust Him with precious Witt, Melanie, Austan, the family, the doctors, and nurses. I trust His promise in Jeremiah to go before us, to always be with us, and to never leave us. He is our Creator--Witt's Creator. Rest in Him and know that He is with all of you.
Melanie and Austan, I saw such strength and joy in the two of you, a strength and joy that only comes from God. He is totally with you every step of the way. God certainly knew you were the perfect parents to be with His precious child, Witt.
We love you so much.
Gayle and Bobby

Praying that the glory of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ will be manifested through precious Witt. Praying for guidance and wisdom for the doctors and that the issues can be repaired with minimal invasion of Witt's little body. That his recovery will progress without complications and that God will strengthen and comfort Austan & Melanie during the waiting. Our God IS in CONTROL.
