Erin's Fray-ed Heart

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  Please join me in praying for Erin on January 9th that she has full recovery and a great and full life.
