Here is a startling picture of Meera’s cyonotic fingers in a blog Georgia wrote for her while she was in the hospital waiting for her first surgery. In contrast to the almost purple discoloration in her finger tip then, today what struck me was the pink that tinged her hands.
The difference between these photos are two open-heart surgeries, and thank God that Meera is now extubated after last week’s operation.
Our prayer for Meera is that after spending the first year and a half of her life with this debilitating heart defect, she will know the joy of health and life to the fullest, and that she continues to grow in body, mind and spirit. She truly is a gift.
