Heart Surgery

A little girl, the baby daughter of a co-worker, is finally undergoing a heart transplant operation this morning. She's been in the hospital since October with a condition that's been life-threatening. Please pray for little Sarah today, that her Healer will work wonders, that the Comforter will undergird and strengthen and encourage her parents and the doctors. Thanks.

UPDATE 12:25p - From her family's carepage: "We have been receiving hourly updates. The surgery is now complete and Sarah is doing well. She should be back in her room recovering within 1 1/2 hours. The surgery was completed within 2 hours." Amen.

UPDATE 01/04, 08:36a - "Sarah had a good night while recovering from yesterday's surgery. She has been taken off the paralidic drug and is already twiching around. The respirator has also been turned down and she is breathing her own breaths in between the ones being administered mechanically. The first couple of days are critical and usually involve a lot of medical attention with adjustments to medications, etc. Hopefully Sarah will continue to make the anticipated progress steadily... We will continue to post updates on her condition..."... and I'll keep posting & updating here, too. Thanks for praying, y'all.
