I would really appreciate prayers for Brayden Thew, my boyfriend’s nephew.
Brayden has hydrocephalus, and has a shunt installed that is designed to drain spinal fluid from his brain into his stomach. Today he is in for his fifth surgery, and he is only 8 months old. Spinal fluid has built up around the shunt in his chest cavity. None of the doctors has seen anything like it (they even called St. Jude’s for a consult, and those doctors were stunned as well). Basically his Neurosurgeon is going in today with absolutely no clue what he wants to do, but is just hoping for the best.
Please pray that the right path becomes clearer to the NS, that there are ZERO complications in the surgery, and that this can be Brayden’s last surgery for a long long time.
