Pray for Tyson Update

So - one thing I will share before I post his update is why this little guy is so on my heart. Now - his Mommy and I are friends from Moms club - we go way back but live in different towns now and even when we were in Moms club - we saw each other - liked each other - lived busy lives - you know? Anyway - she and I found out that we were "accidently" pregnant with our 3rd right around the same time. As a matter of fact - I wound up telling my Moms club friends at a pokeno night about being pregnant with the little buddy when I was literally a second pregnant. I can't remember if Molly told us that night or before but we were both the big news of the night - that is for sure! 

 They were each our third, each baby boys. Tyson was born first and then my little buddy. 
 Then poor little Tyson started his up and down in the hospital very difficult journey and I won't lie to you - I felt guilty. I would sit and look at my perfect healthy baby boy and my heart was sick for Tyson's poor little sick heart and more than anything - my heart was sick for his Mommy's heart that was just as sick as his. 
Anyway - that family has been in my prayers since the beginning and I am asking you to please send them on to your prayer lists as well. I can't do anything about this - I can't do anything for them - but I can rally up my prayer warriors and we can sing our praises to the King that knows why all this craziness goes on. Please help me pray for Tyson. 
Here is her latest update:

Well I wasn't expecting to go in and hear all good news but I was hoping for better than what I did get. His left lung will be totally removed soon. It is putting pressure on his aorta in his heart and there is no longer any blood flow to the lung either. They are not sure in full the damage done to his heart due to the shifting but will now once they go in to remove his lung. Since this is major surgery and with his heart disease Dr. Tam, his heart surgeon will do this. Usually, it would be a general surgeon. Our next step is a conference with Dr. Tam on the actual procedure, review damage and go over risks and complications. The removal of his left lung has always been an idea but since it was in good condition even though not working they didn't want to take it out unless they had too. Since it is getting no oxygen they think it is what has kept him sick the last 9 months. I will keep you all posted on when this might happen but I am waiting to hear again about the meeting with Dr. Tam but I expect sometime this month or next. Right now we are loving everyday we have with our Tyson and thank God for each day we have. That is all I can ask for at this time, one more day. Molly
