It is always a joy to visit Marya, because she is such a brave girl. She is recovering slowly after two surgeries. Also her mother is so lovely and kind. Today when I visited them I heard good news about her progress: yesterday one of her two chest tubes was removed. One remains because she has some fluid in her lungs still. We don’t know when they will remove the other one tube yet. She is no longer in a isolated room and she is free of bacteria and virus! And she is eating well.
Please continue to pray for our beautiful princess, for her soon recovery and for strength in this time for her amazing mom.
It was nice to see Marya today; the first time I have seen her since the day of her surgery. So, it was lovely to see her beautiful face, and so much hair! Marya is so tiny, but looking so intently at me and Joseph who were visiting her. Today she has started trying to feed orally. The nurse said that she does have a fever, and that she is recovering slowly still from her operation.
Please keep Marya in your prayers and she continues to recover. Pray that the Holy Spirit will fill her.
Today when we went to visit our beautiful Marya, she had been extubated yesterday and her mom was happy. The doctor told us that she is stable but for now he wanted her to use a nasal cannula. Her mom is doing very well. Please pray for her and for our beautiful Marya to heal and gain strength in the hospital.
Today was the second surgery for Marya, for the surgeon to dialate the pulmonary artery. It was so nice to see her for the first time, after she had been stabilized following the successful surgery. She looked so tiny in the bed. Her mum was so lovely and welcoming, and she showed me some photos of Marya before the surgery. We also chatted about her family. Marya is the youngest of 4 siblings.
So the hope now is that all the surgeries are done, until Marya is older, and then maybe she will need a follow-up surgery. This is great news for mum and hopefully she can focus on Marya’s recovery. Please pray for her over these critical next 24 hours after the surgery.
