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 ...
I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES!

Canceled

At 2 am Teresa was intubated and started the apheresis process . At 3 am it was determined after viewing the donor heart that it was too damaged . The pheresis is now being stopped and Teresa will be gradually awaken . We are praying for the family who's child went to heaven tonight and for Teresa to have no complications from these procedures .

Oh guys - prayers that there are no complications - for the donor family - for this lovely child - for all of that and more - and for the "let down" of a false alarm.

I know it's hard to "trust" - but sometimes that's all we can do...

hugs - aus and co.

PRAYING! I am sure this was answered prayer but not the way we all had hoped. God is so good and He is protecting your sweet little girl.

Came by hoping to read a different blog post from you this morning. I'm so sorry to hear this - for Teresa and for the family of the little one whose heart that was.

KHM said...

Truly sad to see this. Will keep praying for Theresa and for the donor family too

Annie said...

Oh Ann, I am just so sorry! I will keep praying!

I was so sad to see the word "Cancelled" and I only 'know Teresa' and your family via this blog. I can't even imagine the 'disappointment' you must have felt when given the word. Will pray that Teresa safely awakes and knows that God wanted an 'Extra Special Heart' for 'His' little girl, so that she will be able to do 'anything' she wants after the transplant. Will continue to say prayers for you, as well as the donor families. Pam M. -Chicago

I'm so very sorry, Ann. It must be so hard to trust and have faith when you come so close and then it's taken away. God, please bless Teresa and her family and give them healing and patience and comfort. You are all in our prayers.

Annie said...

Praying for your precious Teresa today, that God will keep close as she continues to wait, for your family, and for the donor family in their heartbreaking loss as well.

Be encouraged Ann; we have added 20 people to our Facebook prayer army in the last day or so. More prayers will be offered up on Teresa's behalf. A total of 351.

Thank you for the update. Have been praying for precious Teresa for over a year now. I am so sorry to hear that the transplant has been cancelled. I believe there is the perfect heart out there for Teresa. Will continue to pray for her and the rest of the family for comfort and strength for all of you. Will also pray for the family that lost there child last night.

Lifting you all in prayer, as well as the family that lost their sweet little one!

Jennifer said...

How frustrating. But a blessing that Teresa was not given a heart that could not sustain her. Prayer for her to recover without any ill effects.

Dear Ann,

I am sorry this happened but have faith that she will get her heart soon. We will keep praying. We will pray for Teresa to be fine when she awakens, and for peace and health for you and the rest of your family.
God bless,

Praying often for Teresa. I have a little girl (my only) just 5 weeks younger. Evelyn loves to see pictures of Teresa, her sisters, Maizy, etc. Ann, I'll keep praying for Teresa, and I'm also praying for your heart right now. As a mom, I imagine yesterday and today were so challenging for you. Challenging seems like a small word here. I'm at a loss for something more fitting. It is so clear that you love both Teresa and Jesus abundantly. Good job being such a beautiful mom, and thank you for sharing so authentically about your journey. Sending love from Oregon.

Alex--thank you for the updates. It's an honor to be able to pray for each step that Teresa and the rest of your family is taking regarding her heart.

AAAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!

[sigh]

Okay, a little closer each time; next time's the charm, right?

...Right?

(And my thoughts go out to the family from whom the heart came.. I'm sure theirs were "attached" as well.)

I'll say it again: Eil na rafa na la.
