Cora's 6.5 hour surgery was complicated, but she survived.
They've said she'll probably be on a ventilator for a very long time... we don't yet know what that means. Just that her lungs are damaged from her heart problems, and recovery will be slow and dangerous. All along they've said that post-op will be the most difficult part of her treatment and the time when we'll be most at risk for losing her. So we're not done praying yet.
But, she made it through the surgery, and we're holding on to hope.
Thank you so much for lifting us up. If it were just the handful of us at the foster home carrying this burden, I don't think any of us could make it. But we know you're behind us, holding up our arms like Aaron did with Moses. (Exodus 17:10-13)
