Prayers Needed!!!!!

The trial off of ECMO is ready to begin...

I spoke with Shane and he said that if Avery is able to make it off of ECMO today for an extended period of time, then they will keep on fighting right along side of her. However, if she is unable to come off for more than an hour, then they will know that her heart and lungs are unable to sustain life without the help of ECMO and if that's the case, they will most likely remove her from life support.

Needless to say, today is a VERY big day!! Shane said, "We need all the prayers we can get." So please, wherever you are...whatever you're doing...please, stop and say a prayer for Avery. We know that God can perform miracles and He is holding Avery in the palm of his hand.

I will let you all know as soon as I hear anything.

    Fight baby girl, I know you can do it!

  2. I've already stopped what I was doing and prayed. I'll continue to do so. Come on, Avery! You can do it sweet girl!

  3. Dear Lord I ask that you give Avery's heart the strength to beat and her little lungs the room to expand right now in Jesus' name. I've been keeping several folks here at the office up to date on Avery and have sent out an update for prayer following this post, so there are lots of people praying for her!

  4. Señor Jesus,
    En esta hora padre celestial ponemos en tus manos la vida de Avery, estamos seguros de que tu infinito amor y misericordia restaurará cada organo de su cuerpo. Declaramos que hay poder en tu sangre que fue derramada en la cruz, creemos que has tomado nuestras enfermedades y que nos has hecho libres, así también creemos que Avery es libre de toda enfermedad y de toda insuficiencia. Manda ese fuego sanador Padre, que penetre por los pasillos de ese hospital y que envuelva el cuerpo de Avery para tu Gloria y para tu Honra, Jesus.
    Bendito sea tu poder, bendita sea tu misericordia, porque sabemos que detrás de esta situación tienes una maravillosa lección de vida y de crecimiento para los padres de Avery y para toda su familia.
    Tu palabra dice que donde hay dos o más reunidos en tu nombre alli estas tú, y creemos que a través de este medio somos muchos los que clamamos tu intervención Señor.
    Bendito es tu nombre por los siglos oh Jehová, declaramos que tu ejercito de angeles pelea a favor de la vida de Avery y muy pronto estaremos escuchando noticias milagrosas y maravillosas. Oh gracias Jesus.

    De corazón. Alejandro

    Lord Jesus,

    Look over sweet little Avery as well as her family during this trying time. I pray that you hold her tiny body in your capable hands and give her the strength she needs to breath on her own.

  15. Carissa and Shane, I am so sorry you are all going through this. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your sweet Avery. May God Bless and Protect her.
