Ally's surgery has been rescheduled due to her still having a bit of a cough. Thanks for all who have been praying for her. I'll let you know when she goes back in for the surgery.
This bubbly little thing is my precious niece and she is just nine months old. Ally has a big day today and she needs you all to be praying for her. Here is a bit of her story (shared with permission).
Ally was born with a cleft palate and craniosynostosis (premature fusing of the infant skull). Early this morning, Ally and her parents have made the trek up to Stanford to have major skull surgery to correct the craniosynostosis. In a few months, she'll have another, less invasive surgery to correct the cleft palate.
They would covet your prayers. Our whole family would. Please pray that the surgeons hands will be precise and diligent. Pray that all aspects of the surgery from the blood transfusions to the reshaping of her skull will go off without incident. Pray that her recovery will be swift and uneventful. And pray for her parents who will be waiting to hold her again upon its completion.
We all just adore her and are so thankful she's in our family. I know she and Elliana are going to be pals growing up as the ONLY girls amidst a slew of boys!! She is such a joyful little light.
Her parents would be greatly encouraged if you let them know that you're praying for them.
And I'll keep you updated.
