Samuel is in surgery now. The surgeon said that most likely the hole in Samuel's diaphragm will require a gortex patch because so much intestine is up in the chest. It will be around 2 hours for the surgery if there are no complications. I have a real peace about the surgery. I prayed that God would hold Samuel's hand through the surgery and I know he will.
Thank you for your prayers.
Samuel might have open wounds after the surgery and be prone to infection. We kindly request for no visitors for three days.
