Prayers for Gracie!

I read this story on another blog and have been following the updates on baby Gracie's blog since. I was truly touched by her story. It seems almost unfair that I have a perfectly healthy baby girl of my own and somewhere else this precious angel is fighting for her life!

Gracie and her family have been through so much! I could not even imagine being in their shoes. They are in need of a miracle! Please pray for her! She is so precious!

Gracie was born last March with hypoplastic left heart syndrome HLHS. I have been reading this blog and praying for Gracie. Go to her blog to get the whole story. This precious baby and her family have gone through one procedure and complication after another. She was scheduled for her second surgery on Feb.12th but her little heart was not healthy enough to risk it. She was put on the heart transplant list...... and amazingly they found a heart for her only 1 1/2 weeks later.

This is little Gracie as she waited to go in to surgery to get her new heart Sat. night. Gracie got her new heart... but it is not working right. There is only about a 1% chance that the new heart will be defective..... and Gracie got the 1% heart. They did not realize the new heart was bad until they had removed Gracie's heart and put the new one in. She is now on the heart re-transplant list.

This little girl and her family have gone through so much.... physically, emotionally and financially. Would you please pray for them. They are asking for our prayers and appreciate the support. They have seen one miracle after another take place since Gracie was born 11 months ago. They believe another miracle can happen if it is God's will. They have not given up.
