Prayers for a little man

I am asking anyone who happens to read this to say a prayer this week for Alex Clayton. If you are unfamiliar with an infant's head, the top of the skull is supposed to have "floating" plates that fuse as the child becomes older. This allows for birth and the rapid growth of the brain during the first 1-2 years of life. Little Alex (7 months) had his plates fuse prematurely. He will be going in for surgery this week. The doctors will have to remove parts of his skull to allow for his brain to grow properly. As you might imagine, this will be a painful recovery. This family also lost their previous child shortly after birth, so I'm sure it is a very tense and anxious time for them. Prayers on their behalf would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, and God bless.

My friends went through this with their daughter. Her surgery and recovery went really well. I'll be preying for little Alex=)

I will be praying for Alex. Something similar happened to my friend's son, also named Alex, he was fortunate though and didn't need surgery. He is almost 12 now.
