Sweet Andre

Andre came to us on June 10th, 2010 at almost 3 months old. He weighed 5lbs and was very sick with a heart condition. He spent most of his time at Milot hospital hooked up to oxygen and IVs. Last week we took him back "home" (COTP) to try and get him to PAP for an echo (so we could attempt a medical visa). However, he was too unstable and we decided to take him back to Milot. We suspected that he was maybe also developing pneumonia. The doctor on duty on Saturday said they they did not think he would make it through the night. Not long later, sweet Andre passed away. We knew that there was a chance that his heart could failure at any moment. His uncle and aunt were able to come see him and be apart of his burial. Please pray for his family and all who loved and cared for him the short time he was with us. We know he is now whole and free from pain.
