For my daughter
« on: November 24, 2013, 06:27:08 PM »
As some of you may know, my wife gave birth to a girl back in August.

She has generally been healthy until a little while ago. She started throwing up a lot after her big sister and I had some stomach issues. Naturally we thought it was a stomach bug and took her to the doctor who pretty much told us the same thing. We waited for a bit and she seemed to get better, but then she started throwing up again. Last Monday my wife took her to the ER because my little one was screaming in pain.

They found a cyst on her bile duct that was as big as her gall bladder, and two stones that had been formed of the sludge in her bile duct. They did a surgery to remove her bladder and bile duct which went well, but as of late her heart rate has been dropping in to 70 bpm. They are probably going to have to put an actual heart monitor on her and do some other testing to determine if anything else is wrong.

Please keep my daughter in your prayers during this time.

Poor little Zoe. May the mother of God watch over your little one.

Lord, have mercy on Zoe.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord have mercy. Too young to have her gall bladder removed.
Lord have mercy.
Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

We brought Zoë home today. She seems to be doing much better now. Thank you for all of your prayers!
