Her chest is closed!

We are very pleased to report that they closed Ava’s chest today just before noon and she seems to be doing really well.  She’s not out of the woods yet – between 12 and 24 hours things can get dicey – but we will just continue to pray pray pray!!


Here she is looking a little more normal again which is such a relief!   And today has been a much better day over-all,  praise God.

Oh my little Ava – please Lord – please keep her steady over-night and let her chest stay closed!!

  1. What a stunning little girl you have! So excited her chest is closed and that she is tolerating it. We will pray for Sarah — for an easy transition, for a brave heart as she learns about the needles and finger pricks, that her blood sugars level out quickly, and that she feels better soon.

    In flexh we are weak, but in God we are made strong.

    “He sent forth his word and healed them;…” Psalm 107:20

    “Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.” Isaiah 58:8

    Claiming healing for wee Ava and that the Lord will be your rear guard to support you through this!
