    She's a little better today, they still haven't been able to seal her up though, hopefully tomorrow if all goes as planned .

    Thank you all for the continued prayers and well wishes.

    Greetings ,

    Prayers inbound for your niece.

    Whenever I visit this subforum, I do it after lighting a bowl of pipe tobacco. I do this because I know that I will learn things for people that although I don't know, I have come to respect as members of BCUSA and I will feel for them, so please accept some real smoke together with my prayers for her.

    Regards,

    Christos

    They took her in last night to close her sternum and stitch her up, I haven't gotten an update on how she is though. As soon as I find out I'll post it.

    Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes!!! I know they're helping.

    Poor thing. I'll be sure to mention her tonight in my prayers. I am truly amazed at the talent of some of the doctors who do these operations.

    No news is sometimes good news. I'm glad to hear they were able to get her closed up. I've been thinking about you all a lot. Her poor parents have to be just besides themselves. I have a 15year old daughter and I couldn't imagine going through this with her.

    I haven't heard anything new, I'm sure they're very busy with her recovery, trinity's mom is a cardiac nurse so she is very involved with this whole process. Ill let you all know as soon as I find out anything.

    They were able to close her sternum and stitch her up yesterday, she's in crazy amounts of pain even with all the meds she's on but she's getting better.

    Thank you again everyone!

    Trinity has had all her breathing tubes taken out and is breathing 100% on her own with her new heart, she's still in tremendous pain which is to be expected, but she is progressing along as the Dr's had hoped.

    Thank you all again.

    That is wonderful news. Still praying for her. Sounds like she is on the mend. That is a huge step getting those tubes out. I'm sure a huge relief for her. Poor girl, I hope she heals quick. Her sternum will take some time. I can only imagine what she's feeling. It just makes you wish you could take the pain for children.

    What a relief! We truly live in remarkable times; taking a heart from one person and installing it in another almost seems routine but it's still a minor miracle. I hope she's on the mend and heading towards a full recovery. A new heart = a new life.

    Prayers sent for a full recovery. Happy to hear she is breathing on her own. Hoping the pain subsides for her soon.


    Side note, what a wonderful, caring place the Ronald McDonald Houses are. Spent a summer working at one and it still impacts me to this day. The stuff your niece, other children and their families go through is heart breaking. It is also inspiring with how hard the children fight (often for their life) while still maintaining a positive attitude.

    Some may find it inappropriate but I met a little 10 year old girl, who wore a "F*** Cancer" (uncensored..) beanie everyday while going through chemo. She was a fighter.

    Thanks everyone, she's getting a little better everyday and hopefully soon will be out of the hospital and back in her own house.

    @WalkingStick we visited her around Christmas time when were out in California and I was very impressed with the Ronald McDonald house, what it provided and how they cared for everyone there.

    Well everyone, there's some new complications that are not directly related to her heart, she was under for 5 days and didn't use her voice for about a week total and somehow that even the doctors can't understand her vocals chords have relaxed to the point where she can't talk above a whisper and she is unable to drink or eat anything as it will go directly into her lungs. She has seen the head and throat specialists and they aren't really sure what to do as it's not something that can be operated on. All that can be hoped and prayed for is that the vocal chords tighten up on their own. She's second guessing having her heart transplant done, because in the words of an almost 16 year old girl, "what's the point of living if I can't talk and go out to eat with my friends."

    As to her heart, she is healing up nicely, still a lot of pain but there haven't been any complications to speak of since she was stitched back up, thankfully.

    So if you could say some more prayers that this vocal chord issue will correct itself or that the doctors can figure something out it would be GREATLY appreciated.

    She's at UCLA in Los Angeles.
