A very good friend of mine just delivered a baby boy this past Tuesday. Her delivery went well, and everything was great with the baby at first. Yesterday, however, things went down hill very fast! He apparently has a condition called coarctation of the aorta. This means that his aorta didn’t close completely before or after he was born. They are hoping that he will be able to have surgery tomorrow.
Please keep Baby Ben and his family in your prayers! Ask God to be with them through this difficult time and to help Baby Ben get through this surgery with no complications.
