Teresa "Fang Fang " Bartlinski

Teresa was born on December 25, 2006 in China. She was born with a very complex heart condition. In July 2010, GOD added Teresa to our family through adoption. We have been blessed with 9 wonderful children. Gods grace has woven us together as a family. Upon bringing Teresa home from China we unfortunately learned she not only needed a heart transplant but also a lung transplant. Her doctors feel she would not survive this operation. Please help us to pray for a miracle for Teresa's heart and lungs to be healed. She is a very special little soul who has touched so many lives around the world ...

Today Gemma had her blood transfusion . This was the second time she went 4 weeks so we were hoping her blood levels would be as good as last month . Unfortunately her hemoglobin dropped too low and her retic count and NRBC were too high along with her ferritin levels still remaining dangerously high. So the plan is to go back to transfusions every 3 weeks . To remove the ferritin levels her next option is to start daily subcutaneous medicine for 12 hours every night or 2 days in the hospital on IV medicine to remove the ferritin . In the hospital she would also be able to receive her blood transfusion at the same time . The Doctors will let us know next week the best choice for her . Besides from being tired and moody this past week she has been doing really well . She is loving Pre K and riding the school bus to school every day .

Dear Ann,

We pray for Gemma daily, along with Teresa. I was reading up on that H. Water, and it actually is suppose to be drank by the ill. JUst FYI.

I love that other girl with Teresa. I remember she also has CHD. Does she have a family yet?

God Bless,

Lee Ann
