Big surgery coming soon

Sweet Shan is going to have surgery tomorrow morning. Her mother is very glad that Shan is ready for surgery, though of course she is also worried about her. This will be a very big surgery for Shan. Her doctor told me that they will be doing the full arterial switch, and they will also attempt to close a hole between the lower chambers of her heart.

This is a huge surgery, and she needs a lot of prayer. Shan was her normal cheerful self today (except for when a nurse gave her medicine through her IV), and played happily with a rattle her mom gave her while opening her big brown eyes wide.

Please be praying that all goes well tomorrow. Please also pray for Shan’s mother, as it’s hard to be so far away from home and alone in a strange country.
