Today I have a prayer request for my second cousin's son, Tyler. Tyler was born almost a month ago and was admitted to Children's yesterday where they determined he has CDH. Apparently, the defect is a small one which allowed him to do OK until now when part of his intestines herniated. Please pray for Tyler and his family. Surgery is expected this week. I am hopeful that he will have a quick recovery and will be home in the arms of his loving family asap. But for now, I know he is in good hands.
Of course, I can't help but wonder if there is a connection to our son's diagnosis. If there is a genetic link, I hope that families like ours might be able to help to researchers determine that link.
