I've been following the story of Jennifer (known to her faithful readers as MckMama), a young mother of four from Minnesota. At 24 weeks into her pregnancy, her unborn son Stellan was diagnosed with heart failure. Jennifer and her husband were told he probably would not survive. Now, at nine months old, sweet Stellan is struggling again. He suffers from Supraventricular Tachycardia (which, in total dumbed down terms means his heart beats much faster than it should, like around 230 beats/minute), and despite great medical care his doctors are having a rough time getting him out of SVT. One of her Twitter updates earlier today indicated that Stellan will be airlifted to Boston where he underwent a procedure four months ago.
I can not begin to imagine the emotions MckMama must be experiencing right now as she watches her baby boy struggle. Through everything though, I am continually amazed by her strong faith. She is an amazing mother, and as part of the blogging community want to do what I can to support her, her husband, her three young children at home, and of course little Stellan.
Today, I am praying for Stellan. Will you join me?
