We love this little man!

Please pray right now for Witt...they have tried 3 times for an IV. The one that was in blew earlier this morning and he needs IV fluids!!
Witt is still on the schedule for surgery today at noon. They will probably take him around 11:00. Melanie and Austan will get to stay with him for a little bit before surgery. The best guess is that surgery will last 1-2 hours. Our immediate concern besides the surgery itself is the ventilator. Witt will be back on the vent and we don't know how long. Please pray that he doesn't have to be on it very long!!! Please pray that Witt's heart and lungs come through surgery just fine!
Please, Lord, be near to Witt. Let Your angels surround him in the operating room. I will extol You, my God, O King, and I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, and I will praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts!
After I posted this, I glanced at the blog. What caught my attention were the 2 pictures I could see at the same time...the one I posted today and the one on the left when Witt was just days old. I am brought to my knees praising Him as I am reminded that truly God is the Sustainer of Witt's life. Be still my soul and know that He is God, Witt's God!~Karen

I'm here praying for Witt to stay strong during the surgery and recovery. He's such a cute little guy and I'm always amazed by how much he's changed in the past year! I bet he brings smiles to everyone who sees him at Texas Children's.

Just joining with you guys right now, praying for God's guiding hand, and ... praising HIM that He is in control! Guide each doctor and nurse involved with Witt right now, and in the surgery ahead. Thank you that you hold this precious little guy right in the palm of your hands.
