Prayers for Oliver

Well this week we are switching things up a bit. I wanted to take some time to share about our son Oliver. Oliver was born on October 14, 2015 at 8pm. It was a wonderful deliveryOllie without any complications but as Ethan laid him on my chest, it was clear that something wasn’t quite right with his left cheek. This began a crazy adventure of doctors appointments and specialists.

Oliver has what the doctors call a Lymphatic Malformation on the left side of his face. It is a grouping of multiple small and large fluid filled sacks. There aren’t too many options for Ollie. Most often parents opt to wait and see what happens as their children get bigger. For Ollie, infection within his cheek is a high possibility. Ethan and I decided that surgery was our option.

With that in mind and all of the pre-operation appointments done, we are on the eve of his surgery. Although it is not an invasive procedure, my heart is still a mess with the thought that my baby is having surgery. We know he is in God’s hands but we ask for your prayers and thoughts as we embark on another part of this adventure. IMG_3764.jpg

Strengthen him and keep infection away from his little body. Guide the hands of the surgeon(s) and give them wisdom as they seek to correct this condition. Give Hannah and Ethan peace and the knowledge of your presence, sovereignty and sufficiency today especially!

    I know you don’t know me personally, but my family and I have been friends with the Bohlmans for a long time. Praying for all of you. All three of my children have had to have some type of surgery, so my heart goes out to you as I know exactly how you feel. Praying for the doctors as well and for a quick recovery. Thank you so much for sharing.
