Pray for little Finn as he heads into life-changing surgery

STOP and say a prayer for little Finn Smith.

His mother, Sarah has sent a text to the Daily at 9am advising her little boy is now in surgery.

Doctors are expected to at the very least remove the fingertips on Finn's right hand and will also assess if more needs to be taken.

It is unclear how long the surgery, which was postponed from Tuesday morning will take.

But once it is finished, it will Finn's family a better understand of what the future for their 13-month-old son is likely to hold.

Finn's surgery was postponed as doctors wanted to curb the risk of infection due to a cold.

"They told us late yesterday the whole team wasn't available," Mrs Smith said.

While the Smiths were gutted, they only had high praise for the hospital staff.

"They are doing a wonderful job and we are very grateful," Mrs Smith said.
