Baby Phillips Update

Just got home from the Specialist and our news isn't great.

Baby Phillips' heart is smaller on one side than the other, and there is some kind of gap in something (I don't completely understand...) that they'll need to fix.

So, baby will need to have surgery on her baby girl heart shortly after she's born, when depends on how baby is when she is born. It could be right away, a few days, or a week or so. We also have to run tests in a few weeks to make sure it isn't due to any chromosome abnormalities.

Needless to say, I'm reeling today and am not processing well. The thought of my little love having to go through that is just unthinkable.

Anyway, I meet with the pediatric cardiologist as soon as they can squeeze me into the schedule (they were booked until June but obviously want to see me sooner.)

Your continued prayers for me little baby girl are really appreciated!!!

I am storming the heavens for baby phillips. If you would like a prayer button for her, go to http://richgifts.blogspot.com and ask Edie to make you one. She is a wonderful lady. She does them free for urgent requests so we can post them on our blogs and have LOTS of people storming the heavens. Just tell her that I sent you.
Hugs,

Praying the Lord heals your little girl's heart, whether miraculously or through the surgeon's hands, or both. And praying he heals your heart from the pain you must be feeling.

I'm with Andrea and am storming the heavens! My sister had a similar thing happen. It was not the heart, but an organ in her stomach. Prayers went out and when they went back for follow up, God provided a miracle. There was nothing wrong. I am praying for miracles to rain down on your little one, Krista. May God hold you and your family in the palm of His capable hands and may you find peace. AMEN!

Adding my prayers for baby Phillips and her parents.

I know the reeling feeling where all you can do is hold tight to Jesus' hand as you walk the bumpy road ahead. He's promised to never leave you. And, while it's hard to imagine, He cares about baby's heart even more than you do. She's in good hands ... and so are you.

Krista, you're in my prayers. My best friend's baby has a murmur, she's sheduled for surgery in Aug but this little girl is one of the most blessed and blessing babies I have ever held. She heals me. I pray your little one gives and gets the same. God be with you.
