Stellan

For the last several months, I've been following Stellan's story. If you haven't read about him, he is a one year old little boy who was found to have SVT while in the womb. They were certain he would die before birth or shortly after. Miraculously, he was born healthy, but has been battling SVT that wasn't controlled in the usual fashion. Anyway, today after nearly dying, he underwent a risky surgery to ablate the accessary pathway that was causing his heart to beat dangerously fast. It was successful. Go read his story. God performs miracle everyday, many of these we are too blind to notice. This is truly an in-your-face miracle. People all over the world have been praying for this kiddo. After reading how the ablation was successful, I cried, and I don't even know the family or Stellan. God gave the physicians the wisdom to know what to do, guided their hands opened a door for them to take a risk and go for it, and it worked. God always knew the outcome. Against all odds, little Stellan is free of SVT. He still has hurdles, but so far, the biggest one has been beat. And if all goes well and Stellan lives a long happy life, just think how amazing it will be for him when he realizes how many people prayed for him. Praise God and continue to pray for Stellan's full recovery.

Wow, thanks for posting! I'd seen mentions of this story on the web but hadn't clicked on it. I'm going to add it to my blogroll. What a great example of unconditional love on the parents' part in the care they have given their precious baby! Thanks for posting!

God is so amazing! I am so happy for Stellan's family and grateful you shared this story. We need to be reminded - and God knows this - that he does care for us and that he hears our prayers.

I haven't followed the story, but am guessing the mom was advised to abort Stellan when the initial diagnosis was made. Glad she didn't so that others could be inspired by this miracle.
