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 ...

Gemma's New Medicine

Yesterday the home nurse came to teach Ed and I how to administer Gemma's new medicine . She will receive an 8 hour infusion of Deferoxamine 5 days a week . Today we were on our own but everything went very smoothly with no problems. She loves her little ladybug backpack that stores her pump. So far so good with no side effects.

Everyone is doing great and so far no one has gotten the virus that made Gemma so sick 2 weeks ago . I thought for sure Teresa would get it because Gemma and her are so close and do everything together but she is doing fine .

Tomorrow Teresa is going to help me make her Birthday cake . She is so excited. Of course she picked pink icing for her princess cake !

I had to wear a little pack like that and get IV antibiotics for 6 weeks after a sting ray bite of all things! I pray it works for your sweet Gemma! It sounds like it is great so far!! Happy Birthday to sweet Teresa!!!
