This is Isaiah. If you haven't been a reader of my blog for a long time-you can go here to get his history or HERE TO HIS BLOG. He spends most of his time here, in the hospital. He was adopted out of foster care by one of my BFF's at age 2.Isaiah with his earthly parents. My dear friends Jen and Aaron. Jen has asked for specific prayers for STRENGTH! Isaiah is in Omaha, NE because it is one of only 2 hospitals in the country to perform small bowel transplants. They are experts here. This is his 2nd transplant. His body rejected the last one.
This transplant will be hard on the family physically, mentally, spiritually and financially as Aaron will stay with Isaiah in Omaha for the minimum of 6 months until he recovers while Jen remains in KC to work as a nurse & take care of their 2 daughters. It is during these times that the enemy loves to attack.
He always dreamed of a puppy and just a couple months ago, he got his sweet "Percy." They have been separated much of the time since Percy is at his home in KS. And Isaiah is in the hospital in Omaha, NE.

Part of the surgery team that will be transplanting Isaiah's new liver, small bowel and pancreas. It is a lengthy surgery that will start this evening at 5pm CST and will end sometime tomorrow morning. Keep this team and their well skilled hands in your prayers as the work on Isaiah in shifts into the wee hours.Please pray for sweet Isaiah. Please also pray for the donor family wherever they may be. They lost their child & gave much so Isaiah could fight for his life.

If you feel led to donate. You can go HERE to donate to his cause on facebook.
