If you've been following this blog for a long time you might remember a little girl, then named Leeza, that I posted about while we were visiting Zoya in the orphanage. This girl grabbed my heart and held on tight. You can read my posts about her HERE. This little girl is certainly a fighter!! Thankfully her mama and daddy found her and brought her home :)
Today she is undergoing very very high risk open heart surgery. Due to her age and the severity of her heart condition, the procedure is considered extremely high risk. If you read this at any point today, or even in the next few days, please stop to pray for her and her family. She is expected to be in the hospital at least two weeks following the surgery today.
Thank you friends!
**I just found out that her surgery has been pushed back 6 months. The pre-op studies showed that it would be difficult for her to be under anesthesia for 8-hours. They are hoping that the medication they put her on for the next 6 months will improve her bloodflow and that this will also give her more time to gain weight. That means we have 6 more months to pray!!!!!
