Folks, Grumpa Dutch here asking for your prayers for my grandson Daron. He's laying in a hospital bed scheduled for surgery in the morning.

I was out weeding my garden when my daughter came running out of the house yelling that the baby wasn't breathing (guess I can't really call him a baby-he's almost two). By time I got over the garden fence, the little tyke was unconscious and turning blue. I managed to clear his airway and he started crying and coughing something fierce. Every time he coughed we were clearing bits and pieces of his supper from his mouth. My daughter took him to Primary Children's Hospital just to have them check Daron out. It seems that some of what he choked on went into his lungs.

Later this morning they are going to insert a tube into his throat and try to suction his bronchial tubes out-at least that's what we're hoping for as it is the least invasive. The other option is to punch a hole in his lung between his ribs and insert a tube that way . . .my daughter said she can't recall what else the Doc said was involved cuz she just kind of tuned the Doc out after the part about punching a hold in the baby's lung.

Got to be up to the hospital in 6 hours. . . I still need to talk to the Boss upstairs and get to bed.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and prayer,
i'll send out as many prayers as i can ... he'll be ok .. if i can do an more just let me know ..
god bless
