Needs a little time

Baby Jamal is still stable after his surgery. His chest remains open, but he is doing well. The doctors tried to reduce his hemodynamic support (mechanical regulation of pressures in his heart), but he wasn’t ready to come off of it yet. The doctor said that this isn’t bad news, it’s very normal, and that he just needs a little more time. His grandmother is doing very well, and was explaining to me what some of the tubes attached to Jamal are for. It is hard for her to see her sweet grandson like this, but she is very strong. Please pray that Jamal will stay stable and continue to improve, and will soon be ready to have his chest closed.
