Please Pray for Stellan

Prayers for Stellan

Stellan is MckMama's youngest child. He's just one month younger than Austin. I've been following (okay, addicted to... okay, okay, obsessed with!) MckMama for almost a year now. She is an amazing, hilarious writer with ridiculously adorable kids. She has 4 under 4! And makes it look so easy!

I found her blog when she was about 20 weeks pregnant with Stellan when another blog linked to her asking for prayers. Stellan had SVT (supraventricular tachycardia) which means his heart rate was skyrocketing. It was 375 at one point. (Normal is 150) And they were told there was really no way he would make it. They put MckMama on heart meds and a HUGE following of people prayed and it worked. Not only did Stellan make it full term, he was born with basically no signs of a problem. They thought at the least they would have to put him on meds or do surgery when he was born. So he's her little MckMiracle.

Last night they took him to the hospital because he had a bad cold and one of the treatments they gave him sent him back into SVT. His heartrate has been in the 300s since last night and nothing they are doing is working. Please, please be praying for him.
