***Update: Alex's surgery had to be rescheduled. Needless to say Alex is happy. I'll post this again when I hear he is going back again.
Meet Alex -- He is an amazing little boy who is fighting against a terrible disease -- Mitochondrial Disease. Today Alex is going in for surgery to have his tonsils removed, which may sound like a fairly simple procedure but for Alex it really can be life threatening. Alex has major issues with general anesthesia as well as significant respiratory issues. He will be admitted to the PICU after surgery today.
Please lift this special family up in your prayers today. Pray for Peace in Alex's little mind as he completely knows what is about to happen and is scared and anxious. Leave a message of encouragement on his page linked on the right side of this page.
