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 ...

What a Week !

I have to say , I am soooo glad last week is over !
Everyone is home from the hospital and feeling great. Gemma has returned to school, Mary had all her bandages changed and we had a glimpse of her new nose . She couldn't wait to see it, although it is still very swollen , she loves it !
Gemma had her blood transfusion while she was in the hospital , so she is good to go for another 3 weeks.
Teresa has miraculously managed to avoid the pneumonia that Gemma had. How , I do not know being that they share EVERYTHING and are inseparable.

Thank you to Casey Cares foundation , the girls enjoyed a Princess Tea Party at the Ronald McDonald House with Princess Tiana and tickets to Disney on Ice !

Teresa has yet to start all of her new meds. because her new Doctor (the one in charge of Pulmonary Hypertension at CHOP , who by the way we LOVE) , decided to take a 2 week vacation . I hope he comes back very rested and ready to go because we are very anxious to have her listed for a heart transplant. I never thought this would be a reality for her . Although I have always had complete faith that God would work miracles in her life ( and already has) , it is now a bit surreal. We return to CHOP on November 18th. and I have this fear they will say "we made a mistake, she is still inoperable.No Heart transplant."

Thank you to everyone who helped to pray for the girls this past week ,as always it never goes unappreciated ! So grateful to you all!

Glad that everyone is on the mend - and while I know your fear - I'm confident you will get good news! And glad that at least the sister's didn't share the bug (sometimes it's good, right, and proper NOT to share!!)

hugs - continued prayers - aus and co.
