One Month from Today

Lee got the phone call from Elle's surgeon's nurse today. Surgery has been scheduled for October 1, 2009. The next few weeks will be crucial leading up to surgery. It's time to start praying specifically! Elle still has a runny nose and slight cough. Please pray that she heals completely before the end of September so we can go ahead with surgery. Pray for God's perfect timing in her little life. Pray that she gets stronger and bigger in the next few weeks. Pray for her continued growth. Pray that she gets better at holding her head up (it will aid her in recovery after surgery if she can sit up). Pray for our strength and peace in the next few weeks as we prepare for her open heart surgery. Pray for Elle's surgeon and his team - for their continued health and well being leading up to surgery. Oh Lord, I just ask that you put a hedge around us and protect us and guide us!

We will keep Elle and your family in our prayers! She is in great hands with you & Lee, God, and the team at TCH! I was hoping we would overlap.... but I am really hoping we are NOT still there on October 1!

Prayers are coming your way from Arizona! I stumbled upon your website looking for information. My daughter, Grace, also has a CHD. Thank you for sharing Elle's story. I will add Elle as Grace's heart buddy.
