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!
I would like to thank our wonderful community an church for the
beautiful prayer service last night . I was told it was amazing . This
does our heart good . Our friends are amazing ! Teresa had a pretty
good night . We had a few scary moments but she quickly fought back .
She is really trying to be the boss of her new heart . Her liver and
kidney function was very high so we need those numbers to come down .
We are waiting for rounds . The talk is the left ventricle may not be
functioning because of how small her old left atrium was ( almost
none existent ) and thus is causing problems with how the new heart was
connected . This could mean she would need another major surgery to
correct. She still has very little heart function . Her body is trying
to recuperate from the stress yesterday of cardiac arrest and CPR .
She has a very high chance of seizures because of this so she is hooked
up to a n EEG to monitor brain function for seizures .
I know god has thus and is in complete control . We are praying for a
complete healing and for god to be glorified through Teresa s life .
Our girl is fighting hard to live . She wanted so much to be able to
ride her princess bike without her oxygen . Thank you all for
all the prayers love and support! We can not answer everyone but please
know your prayers and love are carrying Ed and I . We have also been blessed by wonderful doctors and nurses here at CHOP.
Teresa s nurse last night painted her nails pink . She has had her
princess tiara on the entire time and they even let her go into the or
wearing her gown and tiara . The hospital gown was just not princessy
enough . Please also pray for Teresa's HERO , her heart donor. I can not wait to listen to it beating .... Hopefully soon .
We also wanted to let everyone know that NBC will be airing a follow up to Tersea's story that was aired on Christmas eve. Our hope is that by doing so it will bring more people praying for Teresa's miracle and also bring more awareness to organ donation and the tremendous need for HERO'S like Teresa's HERO.
We are taking life minute by minute and are so grateful to GOD for allowing Teresa to have another day here with us even if it is just to hold her hand.
