Please Pray for Firtuna
We have a sweet little 2-yr-old named Firtuna who has Downs Syndrome.
She has been in the hospital with possible pneumonia for 2 weeks. Yesterday, they sent her for an echocardiogram. It appears she has a heart defect that is typical in DS kids – a hole in her heart that is typically repaired when a baby is very young (about a month old). Firtuna’s heart has never been fixed. It is now causing problems with the blood flow to her lungs, and she is requiring oxygen almost all of the time.
We are waiting for her to be transferred any time now to another govn’t hospital that has a heart surgeon and a thoracic surgeon on staff to see if there is anything they can do. It doesn’t look good. Firtuna’s time may be very limited.
Please pray for Firtuna, for wisdom for the doctors, for her mother Rashan as she receives the news of how serious this is, and for the EHE staff. This is very difficult.
