Luke (with For King and Country) is asking for your continued prayer for his baby boy who just received reconstructive surgery on his skull on Wednesday. Luke and his wife, Courtney, discovered that little Leo needed skull surgery after he was admitted to the hospital earlier in the week.
“Our sweet Leo is out of surgery & all went better than expected,” Luke Smallbone wrote on Instagram. “We should have a week or so in the hospital depending on his healing & are so proud of the champ he is. We are very thankful for all of your prayers & continue lifting him up as he heals.”
Courtney was prompted by the Holy Spirit to check on Leo while he was sleeping. He was found not breathing and looked “gray and lifeless.”
“Yesterday I was mowing the lawn when I heard my wife frantically yelling for me to call 911,” he wrote in the September post. “I wasn’t immediately sure why until I saw her holding our little boy, Leo, who was very gray and looking lifeless. She felt God impress on her to check on him while he was napping and after many prayers and some CPR, our little boy started to breathe again.”
The couple is rejoicing post-surgery, but their hearts are heavy as they watch their son go through this tough time.
“I so wish he didn’t have to walk through the physical pain, but the fact that he can have healing and restoration is a gift from God,” Luke wrote on Instagram Monday.
Because of Jesus, my wife and I have this great hope and trust me…we cling to it tightly!”
