We received this update from Love Without Boundaries on September 17, 2008. Ping had heart surgery yesterday. The doctors had planned to do a complete repair, but during the surgery, they found that his heart defect was more complicated than they originally thought. The surgical plan was altered. One part of the repair was completed yesterday. Ping will need another surgery, sometime in the future, to complete the repairs to his heart. Please keep our special boy in your thoughts and prayers. Ping is at risk for infection, due to a low immunity condition that he has, in addition to his heart defect. We will update you with further information when we have it.

We just received information that baby Ping is scheduled for heart surgery tomorrow, on September 16!!
As you recall, Ping has severe Tetralogy of Fallot. We sent an initial email out about Ping on July 30th. The Red Thread needed to raise approximately $3,000 to help this child receive the care he so desperately needs. The Red Thread is proud to announce that $3200 was raised!! So, thanks to all of you, our wonderful supporters, this little boy has a chance to live!!
Please pray for a successful surgery. We will keep you posted.
