About a month ago I posted about my friend who had given birth to a baby girl in need of a new heart. Zoe was born on July 2nd, and has been on the transplant list to receive a new heart since shortly after she was born. The family learned of Zoe’s heart condition at Zoe’s 20-week ultrasound in February, and in the months that followed it was determined a heart transplant was the only option for Zoe.
This evening they recieved the call they had been waiting for – a heart for Zoe has become available.
PLEASE, dear Internet, stand with me. If you pray, please pray. If you meditate, or think positive thoughts, or light a candle to remember, please do so with me as Zoe goes into surgery tonight to receive a new heart. In your thoughts and prayers, please consider these things:
– Peace for the Faultner family as they rush to prepare for this life changing event.
– Strength for little Zoe to endure the very lengthy surgery.
– Strength and wisdom for the doctors and the other medical staff, as they perform this complicated surgery.
– The donor’s family, as they are experiencing a tremendous loss at this time.
Beyond these facts, I’m a little overwhelmed at the moment to write any more. I am truly amazed at how such a thing is even possible, that two forms of life can be fused together to support each other. I will keep you posted.
