Prayers for Garrett - Bummer Knees - 08-25-2010

Garrett is 9 yrs old and the step-son of my niece.

He a is a bubbly, funny young man who also has muscular dystrophy and is the Ambassador for the Kansas MD Association.

Garrett had spine surgery yesterday to place a rod and straighten his spine. He had a tough time in surgery requiring a transfusion and having his blood pressure & heart rate drop to a dangerous level towards the end of surgery.

He is ICU at a Wichita hospital, and had another transfusion a few hours ago. He is also on a vent and we pray he will be able to come off the vent in the near future.

I am asking for prayers for Garrett, and his family.

I received a phone call a few minutes ago and Garrett is off the vent.

This is good news as some do not come off the vent with this surgery.

I don't know much more but will post with an update later.

Have been keeping Garrett in my prayers all day since I read your post. God works in mysterious ways. This boy may have something special coming in his future. Smile

I told my niece & husband about the thread and they said to tell everyone thank you.

Garrett needs to pass the 72 hours mark of staying off the vent. He has been off the vent since yesterday afternoon.

Garrett blood pressure drops when he is in pain, the doctors are working on this.

That is all I know, and I will post more later.

We will add him to our prayers.

I am requesting special prayers for Garrett today.

Things are not looking real good right now.

His blood pressure is down, he is having problems breathing and there are some other things going on.
