I received a phone call yesterday morning. Bentley's new heart surgery date is May 20, 2009. I don't see the surgery date changing.. this is a surgery they normally do at 6 months or less if the child cannot wait that long, and they never want to go past 1 year of age. So this is the day. This is the day I have dreaded for 5 months now. But with our faith, and your love, support, and prayers we'll get through this.

Prayers Please

There have been a few of you email or comment about a link for prayers. Thank you so much for your support and prayers. It means the world to me!

* Ryan and I will be spending our 7 year Wedding Anniversary in the hospital by Bentley's side. Our anniversary is May 25. But that is fine by me.. all I want is for my baby girl to be okay!



  1. Hi Crystal, I'll make sure to mark that date on my calendar and we will most definitely be praying for baby Bentley (love that name by the way). Even though my daughter never had major surgery there were numerous times during my pregnancy and in the NICU we were afraid we would lose her. She also just went through surgery to correct a cleft lip. I tell you handing her over to the nurse that day was ALOT harder than I ever anticipated! Your right our experiences may be different but we are definitely in similar boats. Just know you have a bloger buddy for support and prayer whenever you need it. :) God Bless.

  2. I'm so glad that you found my blog. I also could not hold in the tears to the video of Tuesday. I was actually a basket-case the whole weekend of her passing and I don't personally know her...

    I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's surgery and I will most certainly be keeping baby Bentley and your family in my prayers.

    I hope you don't mind. I would love to put your button for Bentley on my blog :)


    Oh btw I LOVE your blog, so cute!!

  3. My daughter's OHS date was February 28, 2007. YES... two whole years ago... followed by OHS#2 on March 10, 2007. She had AV Canal. I don't know how I stumbled upon your blog but I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for Bentley and your entire family.

  4. I just found your blog and I wanted to let you know that I've added you & your little girl to my prayer list and will be diligently praying.
    I also had to mention that May 25th is mine & my husband's 7th anniversary too! I'll be thinking of you that day...!
