HEART SURGERY TOMORROW AT 9AM!

Witt's surgery is scheduled for 9am Thursday morning. It would take a pretty big event for it to not happen. He has been back on the ventilator since yesterday afternoon. This morning the doctor did put a scope down the vent tube and into the lungs. He said that the lungs look pretty good...the airways are open. I am not sure when Witt will be taken for surgery but I will try to update the blog throughout the surgery as we get news. I covet your prayers for Witt, Melanie and Austan! My hearts desire is for the surgery to be successful and for Witt to come right off the heart bypass machine. Honestly, I just find myself wanting to stay at the throne of God...and simply asking Him to continue to poor out His love, mercy, grace and strength!!!

To Witt and his family, I have been following Witt for about two months now, and praying for your family. I pray for a full recovery for Witt, I am a grandma to Three little boys, one who is to have heart surgery February 23, 2010 for ASD. I will continue my prayers for your precious Witt.

Let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
Hebrews 4:16

Thank you Father for Precious Witt. Thank you for Witt's, Mel's, and Austan's yesterdays, today, and tomorrows. Thank you for guiding and directing Witt's surgery. Thank you for being in control and allowing Witt, Mel, Austan, and the family to feel your strength and comfort, for letting them find themselves wrapped so securely in your loving arms that they may rest peacefully
tonight. Thank you Father for knowing and taking care of every need at the perfect time. Father, we love you and we trust you completely.
Our hearts and prayers are with you.
We love you so much.
Bobby and Gayle

When we know not what to pray, the Spirit will make intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Rom 8:26
I will be whispering Witt's name over and over knowing God will hear and answer. Thinking of you always.

Praying for God's divine guidance for the doctors and comfort, peace and strength for Austan, Melanie and the rest of the family. Especially praying for precious Witt as God holds him in the palm of His hands throughout the surgery and recovery. He IS in CONTROL!
