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 ...

Just A Cold

Teresa has had a cold for a few days and it was not getting any better so we headed up to CHOP this morning for a check up . 

The cold is causing her heart function to decrease and her lungs to be wet .   So to try and alleviate these problems she was started on a new medicine today .  Instead of staying in the hospital and possibly catching another nasty bug we came home and will return to CHOP  on Friday . 

Even though this cold has made her VERY tired and her breathing very labored ( her O2 is dropping to 62 when she plays ),  it has not stopped her .  She is like the energizer Bunny , she just keeps on going .  She does not want to miss anything . 

Today was Spa  day in the clinic !  She gave both NP's  a manicure including Steve .   She loves him !

Celebrating the little things in life are so rewarding !

How DO they DO that? Keep on going when the O2 drops. The resilience is amazing. I can't imagine there is anyone who isn't Teresa's friend. What a smile!
