Prayers.

I need your prayers. All of you out there.

My little 3-year old, adorable baby cousin Ashwath is gonna have an open-heart surgery to remove a block in his aorta on the 30th of May. He was born with Congenital Heart Disease. Multiple complications. He had an open-heart when he was just 20 days old. Now suddenly they realised that this growth is growing pretty rapidly and the aorta is 60% blocked. He'd also need to have another valve replacement surgery before he's 20, but ofcourse, there's a long time for that.

The kid is totally normal though. He's as active and hyper as any kid. Like totalllyyyyy adorable and totally cute. Which I guess kinda makes things worse to know that there are so many things going wrong inside that tiny little body.

I was talking to my Dad about this the other night and I was really worried. An embodiment of practicality that he is, he was trying to convince me that the operation would definitely be successful and that prayers could really do wonders. Which is why I'm turning to all of you. Not only for him, but for all those little kids out there with similar problems. You don't even have to believe in God to pray for someone, just goodwill would do.

I think it would make a difference. Thanks.

Medical science has improved to a vast extent so that such surgeries which one would dread earlier are today safe and are becoming quite commonplace.

May ur cousin get back to full health!

Meenu said...

Of course , don’t worry, Aswath is going to be all fine . My prayers for him. Whatever your dad has told is 100 % true. Prayers can do wonders.. Now its not the prayers and whom and what u pray.. It’s the faith how u pray.. So keep faith and as you said not just for your baby cousin but for every other kid who has to undergo something as this..

I will say a little prayer for you!

Hope your nephew recovers real quick and the surgery goes very well!

Once he recovers, get him to do some basica pranayams. It REALLY helps.
