More hard news....


The cardiologists are still compiling the results from Seraph's tests.  One thing they know for sure is that the blood vessels in question (pulmonary veins from her right lung) are uniform in diameter.  This means they can't use surgery to widen them.  This means that IF they are too narrow, there's nothing more they can do for her.  IF they are too narrow, she can't have the 3rd heart surgery that she needs because it won't work for her.  IF they are too narrow, they won't grow big enough for her heart to work right.  IF.....

I've been taught not to worry about "what if's" and "if only's"....but it's such a big deal. The first day they told us she had a heart problem, I told my dad we were gonna need a miracle.  She's been strong.  Her cardiologists have been good.  We've felt prompted to do certain things at certain times.

Her doctors are pretty sure her blood vessels are too narrow.....but they're not 100% sure yet. They're doing more tests.  So, I'm thinking it's a good time for that miracle. ;)  Please pray for my lil Seraph.  I just want her to be OK...to come home and be part of our family.....to have a chance to get to know her...and to watch her grow up with her twin sister.

I'll let you know when we find out more.  Thank you.
