WE HAVE A SURGERY DATE!!!
We bailed him out one week later with a nasty cough and more meds, but he’s been doing very well under Elizabeth (and now Katrina Culmer’s) diligent care.
Tia Maria has also given her all these past months.
For those of you who have been waiting for information on donating blood, we think that’s taken care of for now! The doctors have changed their minds and say we only need 1 or 2 donors. We can easily reach that goal amongst our staff. More helpful at this point would be volunteers to stay at Daniel’s bedside before and after the surgery.
Thank you for your prayers and support! We are nearing the goal of a healthy baby! :)

Yesterday he woke up with discharge clouding his eyes, and as the volunteer and I talked about him, he coughing hoarsely.
Oh, the disappointment! This morning I sensed defeat in the voice of Maria, our over-worked health coordinator. The doctor gave him three medications and ordered lab work.
Maria has been unable to reach the heart surgeon to learn what happens now.
Please pray for God's perfect timing in all of this!!!
In other news, I just did a fresh tally of the finances that have come in specifically for this surgery.
Some interesting stats about the donations:
ELEVEN separate donors (some have given multiple times)
SIX different countries: US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, and United Kingdom
EIGHT donors are former volunteers, and ONE donor will volunteer later this year
Average donation amount per donor: $400!
Thank you to everyone who has given so sacrificially! I hope to report back with good news SOON.
