She Flinched!

Bill, the nurse in charge of Chrissie today, put a saline wash in one of Chrissie's IV's, and she flinched!  That's a good sign!  They're thinking she's beginning to get some movement.

Lorraine, praying for healing for Chrissie's heart and lungs. The world needs a little miracle for their own heart so let the prayers reach high for all the right reasons. Loving you all as the arms of Jesus, and thinking of you as I know your hearts are filled with joy at every small, yet ever so HUGE, accomplishment. Godspeed, Pattersons!
Love, Cathy Bachman

Hi
I found your blog through some other blogs I read and your story and your little girl have become very close to my heart. I am also have a congenital heart defect and am 19. I have Double Outlet Right Ventricle with a couple other things I don't remember. I have had 5 surgeries because if it, all when I was really little. I had 2 shunts and then when I was 21 months old I had my open heart to repair my defect. Unfortunately after the first and second surgeries I got an infection and so I ended up having 3 open hearts in the span of 7 weeks. I was one sick little girl and my parents thought they were going to lose me more than once. I even though I don't remember much I still feel the effects of my surgery today and hope that Chrissie get well again just like I did. I pray for you and your family that everything works out and feel free to ask me any questions about my defects or growing up with a heart defect.

Brothers and sisters here in Missouri praying for your dear Chrissie. I check your page several times a day to get updates. Also, be encouraged to know that many of us have gone to our church bodies this morning and shared Chrissie's story so that new armies are rising up to pray!! God is being glorified through Chrissie's life even now! Your faith is in return strengthening all of ours. Love you sister.

Common Chrissie!! Step by step!! Today my pastor spoke about Joy. How even in the darkest circumstances you can still find joy with GOD in your heart. All I could think about was your family and what an example you are to people truly showing only the strength and JOY that can come from HIM!! I prayed all morning in church and will continue to do so until she's awake and back to spreading her JOY again!

Lorraine and Matt, Both services of church today at Cypress Creek Church prayed for Chrissie this morning. We talked about Peter healing the crippled man at the gate called Beautiful. When Peter explained to the crowd that it was faith in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth they were all amazed. We talked about how Chrissie has been born crippled by her heart from birth. She has been called to the gate called Beautiful aka Forgotten Saw Ranch. Just as Peter said to the man "in the Name of Jesus of Nazareth, Walk!" we say also to Chrissie. Flinching will be small compared to the day when she is dancing and jumping and praising the Lord as the crippled man did. We believe, we have faith. We are standing in the gap! At the end of our lesson the entire class laid hands on a picture of Chrissie laying in the hospital that I printed from the blog. God heard the prayers of his smallest,most precious soldiers in the Name of Jesus. John 11:40 Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" We are waiting expectantly, joyfully, peacefully, actively, faithfully to see the hand of God move and completely heal the broken hearted Chrissie! Love you all, Ellen
