Dear Rev. Steven Petersen, Rev.Paul Fries, Greetings. Today evening the doctors confirmed Shalem’s surgery tomorrow morning at 4:00am. Shalem is shifted from the room to ICU this evening and preparing him for tomorrow’s surgery. I went to the hospital with Deena and children. Shalem is asking Sharon (My elder daughter) want to see her because she is his Sunday School teacher. Though he is in the ICU, we went to the ICU and prayed for him. Shalem is very much comfortable and brave to face the surgery. Dr.Thomas Cherian is going to lead the team for surgery. The surgery will take 13 hours. It is time for us to pray for Shalem’s surgery. I can update tomorrow on Shalem’s surgery. Thank you
