Maybe I should have put this in a non GL releated segment but I hope Florian doesn't mind.

I have three children. Jackie (10), Steven (8) and Joseph (4). My son Joseph is being operated on tommorrow (June 15) at 7:15 AM(EDT). He is having open heart surgery. Joey was born with a hole in his heart and tomorrow they will sew it up.

I ask you all for prayers. Joey is 4 years old. His favorite GL song is "Magnificent Outpouring"; he dances to it every time I play it.

The surgery is being done at Univeristy Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio.

Again, I am sorry for posting at this site, but then again I am asking for all of your prayers.

thank you and thank you Florian,

May God Bless You All......

You got it, Wes. We're all pulling for Joey and your whole family. I had heart surgery when I was 10. It was scary then (in the dark ages), but I had my family around me, and Joey does too. He'll be up and around in no time, having Hawaiian Punch sno cones, while we all have OUR choices of flavors LOL.
Best of luck, all our thoughts and prayers, too.

You got it, Wes.

Any 4 year old who appreciates "Magnificent Outpouring" is OK in my book!

Joey's in our prayers. Let us know how it goes.

Joey is entirely worthy of any place on this board I am sure. Know that Joey is in my prayers tonight.

Hi Wes,

You are right on topic here.

You know that we all will be thinking about Joey today, and that everything will be fine.

He will dance to "Magnificent Outpouring" sooner than you think Just make sure you take that portable CD-player to the hospital.

Just to let you all know ...

I called Wes tonight and the lady who answered the phone said the surgery went well.

She said Wes will be back tomorrow.

I'm sure he will post as soon as he can.

Thanks, LAMS.

We all knew it would but we'll all feel a lot better when Wes shows up to tell us again. Prayers continue.

Great gang here.

Hi, all,
I got a phone message from Wes today. He wanted me to pass on the info about Joey to you all.

The surgery went even better than they had hoped. It was supposed to take about four hours, but only took two. It was over just after nine o'clock in the morning. They took out all the chest tubes, etc. this morning and Joey has moved out of intensive care and into a regular hospital room. He will be going home probably Sunday.

Wes was really beat today. He spent all night at the hospital last night (slept on the floor). He only came home to get a bit of rest while his wife stays with Joey. He's going back tonight. So he probably won't be on the computer until Sunday at the earliest.

He just wanted me to let you all know that it went well and he wanted me to express his thanks for all your prayers and support.

Stay loose, eh?
