First update

The first incision was made at 12:27pm.
The OR nurse will update us every 1-1.5 hours, and the whole procedure will take 6-8 hrs.

'The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” (Exodus 14:14 NLT)


  1. Love you guys and still praying for little Thomas! Thank you for posting the updates..I keep checking between every 2-3 patients. You are on my mind constantly! May God continue to bring you peace throughout this day!
    Love and many many prayers,

  2. Praying and trusting the Lord. Hope you're feeling the prayers and the peace that passes all understanding....

  3. Praying for you all through out the day. Praying strength, courage and peace.

  4. Dr. Behm,
    As fellow NICU parents that once had to sit quietly by as someone else cared for our acutely sick newborn, we understand your pain, worry and heartache. Please know that we are praying and thinking of you and sending all of our positive energy to you and your doctors at this very moment and throughout the upcoming hours. All of our love to you and your family.

    Love, Jen and Joey Santorum

  7. Psalm 91 is a good one to read today while you wait. Praying for strength for you & your family, praying for the doctors & mostly praying for God's protection & healing for Thomas. Will continue to pray.

  10. My kiddos and I are praying for "our Doctor Behm with her stethoscope and sweet baby Thomas" and his team of Dr.'s! I can't imagine your pain, but I do remember when my little Will was sick I held tight to the words..."And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up...the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective!" James 5:15-16.
    You are in our hearts and on our minds!
