My only son was born on Nov. 11 with a large hole between the 2 ventricles in his heart, and both his ventricular valves on one side, instead of one on each. Also, the left one is significantly smaller than it should be. Needless to say I have been hunting for a miracle instead of for deer this year. The doctors have given us a good chance with survival after surgery. He is eating well and gaining weight, which is far above what they expected him to be doing. He will have open heart surgery on Monday, June 15 at Tulane University Medical Center in New Orleans. The doctors expect him to be in the hospital for 2 weeks after the surgery provided everything goes well. We will stay in the hospital's medical motel for the 2 weeks while he is in ICU & recovery, and have been saving for the room & food as we will obviously be off work for that period of time. Please remember us. His name is Benaiah (we call him Ben) David O'Steen. His name comes from 2 Samuel 23:20: "Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it." He is chasing his first lion now.
