Pray for Canon

I was going to publish a follow-up post regarding the results of my Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange but then I got an email request from Susan at Blessed Assurance that constitutes a much higher priority. The recipe exchange update will have to wait.

Susan is asking for prayer requests for a little boy named Canon Norman. 4 year old Canon was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. He had been awaiting a heart transplant and had endured four heart surgeries. On Saturday, 16 September, he had a heart transplant.

Today the doctors did a biopsy and discovered that it is possible that Canon's body might be rejecting his new heart. He is still on a ventilator, but coherent and very scared. His mother, Carla, is beside herself.

Now, I don't know Canon or Carla personally, but I am a mother and I know how terrified I would be if Snuggle Bug were in the same circumstances! For that reason, I am helping to spread the word and requesting prayers for little Canon.

I strongly believe in the power of prayer. I've had many people offer up prayer on my behalf over the years as I've faced my own medical challenges. Canon and his family are in my prayers and I hope they'll be in yours as well.

You can read more about Canon on a Pray For Canon blog. Please stop by and leave some encouraging comments for their family.

Thank you.

Thank you! I know God is going to bless them some way or another b/c of all of our efforts to spread the word and to lift them up in prayer

Thank you for passing on the info about Canon. I will be praying for him and his family.

I just said a prayer for Canon - oh the horror of it all.

Also, my surgery didn't go as expected last week and I just got home from the hospital yesterday. I know if might be late, but I'll still going to post for the Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style if it's okay?

P.S. Thanks for your prayers too.

Oh that's such a sad sad situation!! I can't even imagine scary it must be for that family. I will definitely keep little Canon and his family in my prayers.
