Please pray for Aly Jean, she is having her Fontan today! This is the 3rd and final stage of the "planned" surgeries for HLHS. None of us know what the future holds for our HLHS heroes, but at birth we are told they will have a series of three surgeries. It is a great accomplishment to make it this far in the fight, while others are not as lucky.
Please pray that this will be her last medical intervention on her heart, and she is will grow strong and healthy, and live a very long long time with her mended heart. I pray for her parents that are about to hand her over to their trusted surgeons and God to help perform this miracle of making half a heart function as a whole heart.
Please give them strength as they have to wait patiently in the waiting room, which is a long and grueling day. I hope that her recovery goes smooth and she is home real soon. I have watched Aly grow over the year, she is an amazing, cute, spunky, adorable fighter! Her mom, Jenny, is a dear friend who is so strong and brave. Go Aly, you are going to do awesome! http://www.alyjeansspecialheart.com
