Default Calling all of Emmett's Prayer Warriors Again

The say that we have dreaded for months now is finally nearing. Our little guy is having his open heart procedure this Thursday. We were hit with some rough news last Wednesday during a pre-op check up that shook us. A chest x-ray showed that Emmett's heart has become rather enlarged, which further complicates his procedure. His risk factor with this new discovery increases 10 fold, which was really difficult to hear. Due to this new discovery, the performing surgeon has decided to delay Emmett's surgery date in order to bring in the chief anesthesiologist. Although this gives us five more days of worry and concern, we're glad to have the best of the best.

Emmett will be admitted tomorrow morning in order to closely monitor him as they begin fluid restricting him. The plan is to get in and out asap, as the longer his enlarged heart stays down the greater the risk. They will be trimming out excess tissue from his septum and near the aortic valve, as well as placing his pacemaker. We're hopeful that by pacing his heart with a normal heart rhythm, the size of his heart and aorta will return to normal size since it's not working as hard.

Many tears have been shed since learning of this new complication. We've had a full year now to fall madly in love with our little guy, so hearing that our risk has increased so much has been devastating. Please help us pray for our Emmett. Pray for the surgical team that will be working on him. And pray that this procedure will fix all that is wrong with his heart, so he can move forward with a normal life. We've had to deal in chances and probabilities on too many occations now.

I'm not sure I even posted in the other thread but found myself checking in daily for updates. Thought about you guys the other day out of nowhere, wondering how Emmett was doing. Hate to hear the new developments but you guys are in my prayer.

Like I’ve posted before, with a boy near the same age as Emmett’s, it really hits home. God has shown himself through Emmett during his whole young little life thus far, and I pray he continues to do that.

Y’all will all be in my prayers.

Praying for Emmett & your family as ya'll get ready for this procedure. I pray that God guides the surgeon's hands and gives every doctor and nurse that touches him wisdom in how to do everything just right. I pray that God uses this little man's story to display his power and he would go on to live a long healthy life that brings God glory.

We need another official Super Hero to go along with our official TBH Captain America, Weston!! TBH is too big for just one. Emmett will be the perfect addition to our Super Hero warriors!!



Lord God in Heaven,
We thank You with our whole hearts for the powerful work you have done with our little brother Emmett to this point! We praise Your Name for it! We know Lord that You are our God and that before Emmett was even formed, the You knew every hair on his little head and every drop of life-giving blood that runs through his body... Through the eternal life giving blood of Your Son Jesus Christ that You gave up to save us all, we come to You Father God. We ask You, complete this healing in Emmett. We ask You Lord for guidance for all his care-givers to a right diagnosis and treatment to accomplish this healing You have in store for him. Guide the surgeon's hand as carefully as you guided the children of Israel through the wilderness for 40 years... Bring him safely through this trial to grow up strong and whole and healthy as a powerful witness for Your power, mercy and grace. ... as a demonstration of Your love for us and this dear family. Lord comfort Colton and his wife as they stand by Emmett's side. Give them a peace that comes through Your indwelling Spirit giving them the Hope that is in You. Ease their anxiety that they know You are in control and that you have their precious son Emmett safely in Your healing hands. Touch them all and give them the grace of Your peace until Emmett is ready to leave the hospital a healed little man ready to grow up strong and in Your Way Lord. We ask these things through Your Son who had a boundless heart for us... Heal Emmett's heart, In Jesus name, Amen!


We'll be praying right along with you guys Colton through all of this. Our God has got this under control! Please keep us updated as you can.
