Athena & her parents & Gramma Carol have gone to Pittsburg.
The hospital there called yesterday & said they had the organs coming
that our little doll needs, her missing intestine & pretty surely a liver.
She is 18 mos. now & the I V formula she has been getting is very hard
on the liver which was known from the beginning. It has also caused a
brittle bone condition.
We need prayer for the whole family, the skill of the medical team & that Athenas body will accept these organs.
Also very special prayers for the heartbroken family which was so generous & loving as to donate the organs of their own precious babe so that ours can live.
Thank you all & God be with you as well! Love Jan

Sending huge prayers for your entire family. I'm from Pittsburgh, originally, and think that the hospitals and doctors are some of the best in the world! I hope little Athena's surgeries go well and that her recovery is speedy and uneventful. Prayers for the awesome family who are helping to save Athena's life.

Got this from dau Carol, Athenas Gramma this A M. She needs to accept the organs & recover, keep prayin', it's still a long road. God has brought her this far I'm encouraged & have to believe He has good plans for her. Praise God!

Carol M. Schoen
Athena is all done with her surgery and on her way to PICU. All went well and she only needed liver and small intestine. Thank you, again, everyone. Will make phone calls asap. Having a few phone troubles right now.

Carol called & said that Athena is resting quietly.
She is sedated so that she won't feel all thats going on,
or try to move around. We are praying that her body
will accept the organs & she will heal well. She won't
be able to come home for quite a long time. It's all
a bit nerve wracking, might have mentioned that.
Thank you all so very much for your prayerful, careful
support, You are so appreciated! Luv Jan

God bless precious baby Athena. :hp That little one and her family have gone through so much. Praying that Athena will accept her new organs and that everything will go wonderfully well, as planned. So very sad for the donor family but there has to be some measure of comfort for them in knowing that their wonderful generosity is providing life for another little one. Jan, thanks for sharing all the details and also the pictures of Athena. She's beautiful! :hp

I'm excited about the wiggling! Jan

the newest post from Gramma Carol = Evrything is going well. Hope to wean her of Oxy. tomorrow and extubate. She is ready to dance. Doing a lot of wiggling and squiggling. Keeping her calmed and resting for a while.
