prayer request

My cousin, Alicia, needs your prayers VERY BAD and so does her sweet baby girl, Claire. Alicia gave birth to Claire Tuesday night at around 6pm, the delivery went very well and everything seemed to be perfect for their family. However, early Wed. morning Claire was luckily in the nursery and nurse noticed her turning blue. Long story short Claire has a condition called Transposition of the Great Arteries; her blood can not travel properly and she is not receiving enough oxygen before it is distributed to her body. She had a stent put in yesterday afternoon and everything went well. Her color is coming back and she already looks better my cousin said. Friday morning at 7am she will have major open heart surgery where they will reroute her major arteries to her heart. It is so great that doctors can do such things as this. We are all confident Claire has the best physicans there is but even better she has the GREATEST physican ever on her side, I am confident God will protect her. Please keep Alicia, her husband, Andrew, and Claire in your prayers.
