Praying for Stellan

I have been following the blog, My Charming Kids for many, many months. MckMama, as she fondly goes by, has 4 children; Stellan, the youngest, was diagnosed with SVT or rapid heart rate while in utero at 20 weeks gestation. The doctors told MckMama & her husband that Stellan would not survive the pregnancy. Miraculously, he was born with no further signs of SVT. However, at 4 months of age, he again developed SVT.

Stellan is now almost 9 months old & doing very poorly at the moment. This story has really struck a nerve for me since my baby boy is only one month older & I cannot fathom going through such heartache & pain. Please say extra prayers for Stellan & his family. God, please give Stellan the strength to pull through this! Stellan beat all the odds that were stacked against him when he was in utero & can do this again!
