My Brother-in-law, a pediatric cardiologist, was visiting for Christmas. He was telling me about one of his patients, a 12 year old named Erin. She was born with only 1 chamber in her heart. She was not expected to live beyond 6. She has showed those doctors up by defying everything they think they know. She hasn't been a permanent resident at the hospital, only a frequent visitor, living a normal life in between tune-ups. On January 9th, Erin will be having open heart surgery with a 50/50 chance of surviving the surgery. My Brother-in-law wanted her to have something to go into surgery with for comfort so I made her this little blanket with the frayed heart applique from www.PlanetApplique.com. Please join me in praying for Erin on January 9th that she has full recovery and a great and full life.
