I am sure his mother is worried sick and they were taken to a hospital in Westchester, NY for the procedure this just all happened over the last hour. Asking for many prayers.
I will be praying for him and the family. My dd had hydrocephalus when she was 18 months. She has brittle bones and the surgery was considered extremely risky for her. No one knew what to expect - whether her skull would shatter or what. The Lord brought her through it just fine and she's had that same shunt for 15 years this Thanksgiving without any problems. She also has severe respiratory problems so anesthesia for her carries other risks but absolutely no problem. Please keep us posted.
