Maksim is a 3 month old boy who was born with undeveloped wall that separates the heart chambers. Doctors wanted to wait until he becomes stronger before performing the open heart surgery, so they put him on a heart rate control pill which unfortunately did not work.

When he was given his first regular vaccination, he got an extreme reaction that causes his rate to go above 200.  The situation got even worse and we lost him that day for a few minutes. After the medical team in Calgary resuscitates him, they ‘flushed’ his blood and temporarily stabilized his heart rate. He got transferred to Edmonton Stellery Children’s Hospital to be scheduled for further testing and open heart surgery.

Another unfortunate situation happened with an unknown cause when he got a severe reaction which lead to losing him for the second time in 10 days. After the medical team resuscitates him, he fell into coma for a few days. After he woke up from coma, the medical team had a hard time to find a medicine that would regular his heart rate that was going up and down exceeding all the limits. Two nights ago, his heart rate went to 250 which caused the immediate response by medical team. The decision was made to perform the surgery as soon as his heart rate becomes stabilized, as the risk of waiting was way too high.  His open heart surgery was scheduled for tomorrow Nov 3rd.

Father (Nemanja Miscevic) is the only household income earner and he has been out of work for over 2 month now with no any other income coming their way. The savings that they had went on medications, travel and treatments and they got to the point that they cannot afford basic living costs (house, bills, food). It is uncertain when Maksim will be recovered and released from the hospital so that father can return to work. To this date they are 24/7 in the hospital with Maksim.

As we need a lot of prayers from everybody for Maksim to survive his surgery tomorrow and get better, any financially support would be greatly appreciated to cover basic costs of living for the family. In situations like this, the only hope is people around us with good hearts to give their prayers and for those who are also fortunate enough to financially help as well.

Thank you for listening to my story and God Bless all of YOU! May health always be with you, as when that is on the line, nothing else matters!

Maksim got transferred to Calgary hospital this morning via a helicopter. He is dong much better as two medicines that he is taking are doing a good job in controlling his heart rate. Doctors want him to stay in the hospital until he starts to eat regularly as right now he eats 3/4 of what his daily portion should be. He sends you a lot of smiles ❤️

After 6.5 hours waiting we have received the notification that the operation was successfully completed. The Doctors are confident that the second surgery might not be needed in the future. The next 24h will be critical but the hopes are positive. We would want to tank everyone for the support and prayers. I will send another update after the 24h passes.
Thank you and God bless you all! ❤️
