    For those who do;

    my 2nd cousin, Baby Dravin, he turned 3 months old today (friday) and he has already went through so much in his life!!

    he was born with tetralogy of Fallot and has already endured and recovered from open heart surgery, blood
    clots in his legs.

    sent home and started losing weight immediately, couldn't/wouldnt eat..
    ended up going back to the hospital a couple wks ago...they put a feeding tube in him..then
    they found out he had a blood infection, they took care of that, now they are thinking he has
    intestinal malrotation (requires surgery)..but he can't do that because he is not stable, his
    color is detiorating, his heart is acting up..his lungs are filling w/mucus...

    and just a few hours ago, they called his mom and said get here now! (nickname is Lightnin Bug aka: Bug)
    he isnt doing too well..
    ETA: Sorry, the reason he's not doing good now, is he now has contracted H1N1 flu..(infectious flu)

    now the docs are considering (or have done by now) life support options...

    he is a very very sick li'l boy!

    For those who are in the central IL area; CBS will air his story at 10 on the local news..

    I thank you in advance for all the ongoing prayers you will send on Bugs behalf..
    and if any of you have a prayer chain ...please pass it on!!!

    They just did a lead story on the news; due to him having H1N1...
    they said he's critical and in the fight of his life; which I already knew...

    apparently they are filtering his blood tonight too..he is such a cute li'l boy..

    I'll link you all when the story becomes live online..
