Elizabeth's daughter, Emme, was born with a heart defect. Her heart has now gotten to the point where an artificial heart valve is necessary. They will be traveling to Minnesota in order to have the surgery at Mayo Clinic, where she had her first surgery. Since this surgery is out of town, it means there are more expenses for the family. They will need to stay in a hotel/food anywhere from 4-14 days and that won't be known until the day of surgery based on which procedure is actually done. They will also have to meet the rest of the total out of pocket portion. You get the picture. Any amount you could give would be so appreciated. Please offer up prayers for smooth transportation, good health prior to surgery, wisdom and skill for the doctors, peace and comfort for the family, complete healing for Emme and that everything would go smoothly. We want Emme to come back home healthy and happily on her road to recovery. The surgery is the first part of October, so time is critical to get started right away.
