We could use some prayers again

OK, I guess it's about time for a medical update on Quinn. I haven't really talked about this with many people because we don't have real answers right now and we don't want to concern people, but we would appreciate some more prayers for Quinn. He is going in for his next round of stents and angioplasty on the 30th. But we are not sure if that is going to be the procedure he'll actually end up having. At Quinn's last cardiology appointment we found out that there is a POSSIBILITY that the doctors might not be able to dilate his arteries again. There is a feeling from the doctors that his arteries may not have enough elasticity left in them. If this is the case we will be facing a surgery where they cut his chest open again, cut open his pulmonary artery, and add material to the artery therefor stretching the artery physically instead of mechanically. Unfortunately, we won't know the final decision until he is actually in the operating room and the doctor is able to evaluate the arteries. I know what is meant to be will be, please just pray that whichever procedure we end up with it goes smoothly and with no complications. OK, thanks everyone.

Dear Steph and Dan,
I've been away for a bit and just caught up on your blog. It breaks my heart to see Quinn going through so much again - and both of you, too. Of course I will keep you all in my prayers, and ask others to join me. Thank you so very much for keeping this blog active. I love that little boy and am thankful to be able to get updates and see his pictures. What a beautiful boy he is!
With love,
Mrs. Cherry

A mini mini mini update because the Marshall's are away from computers.........Quinn had the routine angioplasty today, no open heart surgery! I'm sure mom and dad will be more detailed. Thanks for all of your support and prayers.
