Heart Cath Update

Well, it's been a long day. We got here at 6:30 AM and he finally went back for the procedure at 1:30 PM. We didn't hear anything for about 3 hours and then got a call to come see him in the recovery room. He was quite fussy so they pulled up a gurney and let Laine hold him there. Shortly later they pushed us back to the room where we'd been all day and are there now. We talked with the doctor who did the procedure who gave us a lot of info about the heart and lungs and Kevin's situation. He let us know that they can't really give us a recommended course of action until the cardiologists and heart surgeons confer about his case. They may meet this Friday but it may also be the following Friday due to Spring Break. Either way, we'll update you guys once we know more. Thank you all so much for your love and prayers. We have definitely felt the Lord's presence and peace with us today. We may still get to go home late tonight... he has to stay off his leg where they put in the cath for a number of hours after the procedure.

Blessings to you all!

Rob and Laine

For miraculous healing, peace, and complete wisdom for you and your doctors!!! One of my dearest friends daughters has Hypoplastic Left Heart and I have witnessed God's hand on Maddy's precious heart. He Will not Leave you or Forsake you!!!!! And as you know He loves your precious boy beyond what we can even begin to comprehend! Hold on to Him!

Praying for little Kevin and also for both of you. I have so many thoughts on all of this and how I have learned with my own kids that there is not always a "fix" in human terms. As an American, I think I always felt like we could fix everything. I have learned some hard lessons about this. I do, however, KNOW that our God is H-U-G-E!!, and He can overcome all odds. I love the verse, "...casting all your cares on Him, for He cares for you."
