Baby D is Sick.

As we count down the days to admission (2) and heart surgery (4), baby D has gotten sick again.

Yesterday he woke up with discharge clouding his eyes, and as the volunteer and I talked about him, he coughing hoarsely.

Oh, the disappointment! This morning I sensed defeat in the voice of Maria, our over-worked health coordinator. The doctor gave him three medications and ordered lab work.

Maria has been unable to reach the heart surgeon to learn what happens now.

Please pray for God's perfect timing in all of this!!!

In other news, I just did a fresh tally of the finances that have come in specifically for this surgery.

Some interesting stats about the donations:

  • ELEVEN separate donors (some have given multiple times)
  • SIX different countries: US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, and United Kingdom
  • EIGHT donors are former volunteers, and ONE donor will volunteer later this year
  • Average donation amount per donor: $400! 

Our current total (minus paypal fees) is approximately $4350. Our original goal was $4000, readjusted to $6000 to allow for more heart exams, lab work, post-op medication and consultations, and any other complications needing immediate funds.

Thank you to everyone who has given so sacrificially! I hope to report back with good news SOON.
