Prayers

I have a prayer request for a little girl named Lindsay Hartman along with her dad, Daren, and mom, Michelle...a few weeks ago Lindsay left her parents at the 'red line' to head into surgery for a shunt (her 1st trip to the OR for chiari...but has siblings having made the trip))....as it goes with us chiari parents, we say our good byes and do 'our thing' as the hours begin to pass until we will see them again...just as Darren and Michelle had finished lunch...a hospital bldg. over past a maze of construction obstacles....a call came in on her cell phone...the call every parent absolutely fears, the one which brings you to your knees....something had gone terribly wrong in the OR and they were needed immediately, by Dr. Frim....the call went to voicemail b/c of reception....once a connection was made as they sprinted to the OR they were not told much of anything but to hurry! It would come to be known that Lindsay had a very rare, no way of knowing severe allergic reaction to a med given to her for the surgery, which nearly claimed her! By the grace of God the team recognized it promptly...Lindsay came through with no added problems!!
Tomorrow Lindsay will cross the 'red line' once again to have her shunt placed (7:30 Chicago time)....this time the med will not be used....to keep things less confusing, surgery minus this drug for shunt placement will leave her with a ton of pain....Please pray for Lindsay- safety and low to no pain :)...for her folks- peace....I cannot even begin to imagine!!!!

Wow, how scary. I cannot imagine how scared they must have been. I hope everything goes well today for them. I am certainly thinking and praying for their whole family.
