Update on grandson Ben…

Believing for Ben

Facebook reminded me this morning that two years ago today grandson Ben, who was 4 years old at the time, had his first endovascular surgery to repair an AV fistula (abnormal vascular formation) in his brain. Here’s my Facebook post from May 19, 2014:

Grandson Ben came through today’s surgery just fine. There were 10 or more people on the medical team. Dr. Berenstein placed 18 coils (made of platinum and each about the width of a human hair, I read online) in the fistula in Ben’s brain to slow the abnormal blood flow. Ben is in pediatric intensive care and will have a second procedure done later this week (using medical-grade super glue) to stop the abnormal blood flow. It sounds like science fiction! We are very grateful for everyone’s prayers and for the world’s finest medical team. Please continue to pray for Ben as he goes through this…

  1. Two years! Hard to believe–that so much has changed in such a short time . . . and that you’re still standing, I’ll wager. Peace, John
