Prayers for Travis

Travis, like Mason, has HLHS.
He is 16 months old. In addition to HLHS, Travis has a narrowing in his aorta. He went in Thursday for open heart surgery to repair that narrowing. Friday, he went into cardiac arrest, required 2 hours of CPR and is now on ECMO. Today they have taken him in for a CT scan. His pupils are no longer responsive.

PLEASE pray that he tolerates ECMO well and that there is no damage to his brain or other organs from the extended CPR. He also needs prayers that his heart is able to rest and recharge while on ECMO.
We have never met Travis or his family however we are all apart of the same fight.

During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
