Urgent Prayer Needed!


(Anna - 2 1/2)

My dear friends Tony and Jo adopted little Anna from China two months ago with a known heart condition (pulmonary and aortic stenosis). Anna has been stable and healthy since coming home and the doctors suspected she wouldn't need any major surgeries anytime soon. This morning she went in for a heart catheterization to give the doctors a better look inside her heart.
Jo, Anna's mom, called me this morning to say that they nearly lost Anna on the table toward the end of the procedure when her blood pressure plummeted. After 45 minutes of CPR they were able to bring her back and she is on life support in the PICU. They believe that even though her heart wasn't beating on its own for a long period, they were able to keep the oxygen levels stable during resuscitation. Pray that she pulls out of this and that her little body hasn’t sustained any damage. These next few hours, in particular, are very critical for her.

Please, please pray for little Anna and her family (Tony, Jo, and big sister Grace who is 4). Jo and Tony have asked that prayers be concentrated on Anna, but I know they need prayer, too. They've been through so much these last couple of months and I just have to trust that God will not give them more than they can handle in His strength. We serve an amazing God; please call on Him for little Anna’s sake and pass this on to any prayer chains and prayer warriors you may know.

My prayers are sent to this family and baby Anna. I wish them all God's blessings and goodness.
There are no words to express the feeling that washes over you when you read about a child-any child - in harms way.
