Prayers please

My sister's son, Ephraim Yehoshua (ben Leah Gavriela) was born with PHPV - Persistent Hyperplastic Primary Vitreous - in his left eye. It's a very rare condition (big clinics will usually see about 2 cases a year), which is likely to leave the child with no sight at all in that eye, unless surgery is performed before 11 weeks of age.

His surgery is Tuesday morning (Israel time). Please join me in praying that all goes well!
