Meet Evie

God has had His merciful hand upon her life since day one. Evie was delivered January 2008 with a serious undiagnosed heart defect; Transposition of the Great Arteries. She could have died any time in the ten days we had her home unaware that her body was not circulating her blood and she was slowly suffocating because of lack of oxygenated blood. We took her to the ER one night because it was apparent she was having respiratory difficulty. It was here that we almost lost her as a dozen doctors and nurses rallied to try to save her as she slipped into ketogenic shock. When then diagnosis was made, she was air lifted to MUSC Charleston and placed in ICU. Hundreds of people began praying and asking others to pray. We felt the presence of the Lord through an unbelievably difficult time and know it was His hand of healing that saw Evie through open heart surgery and the difficult road to recovery.She has since battled congestive heart failure, chronic lung disease, failure to thrive, severe reflux and aspiration, asthma and is being tested for auto immune disorders. She is followed by half a dozen specialists and is still on a regime with medications and breathing treatments, but is such a trooper and is making great strides!We know the Lord Jesus has spared her life for a purpose and thank Him for every day He allows us to love her! She’s our little miracle!To read her story, visit:
