Stop putting yourself in a situation to have to “cut people off”. Gain enough discernment to understand certain people shouldn’t be around you in the first place!🔥
From Khansaa's ❤️ to yours, we're back with Day 23 of #365DaysofAwareness
for CHD!! Today we will be highlighting the Norwood-Sano procedure, which is the first stage of the three palliative surgeries required to treat HLHS.
Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome Surgery: The Norwood Procedure (Info provided from kidshealth.org)
Why Does a Baby Need the Norwood Procedure?
Without medicines and a series of three surgeries to rebuild the heart, babies with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) won't survive. The left side of the heart can't be fixed, so the goal of the surgeries is to rebuild parts of the heart and "redirect" the way blood flows.
The first surgery is called the Norwood procedure. It’s usually done when a baby is around 1–2 weeks old.
What Is the Norwood Procedure?
The Norwood procedure is a type of open-heart surgery. The goals are to:
Build a new aorta (the main path from the heart to the body).
Make the right ventricle pump blood to the body through the new aorta.
Make the right ventricle pump blood to the lungs through a new path to the pulmonary artery (the main path from the heart to the lungs). What Happens During the Norwood Procedure?
The main steps of the Norwood procedure are:
Building a new, larger aorta. The bottom part of the pulmonary artery is joined with the baby's weak, undeveloped aorta. This new aorta is now the path from the right ventricle to the body.
Because the bottom of the pulmonary artery is used to make the new aorta, a new path from the heart to the lungs has to be built by:
Using a shunt to get blood to the lungs. A round tube or "shunt" routes blood either from the aorta (with a Blaylock-Taussig or BT shunt) or directly from the right ventricle (with a Sano shunt) to the pulmonary artery. The care team will decide which shunt is best for the baby.
The shunt is a temporary fix. It helps the baby get blood to the lungs until the next surgery, which creates a more permanent solution.

The girls wanted to get baby brother his first buildabear the other day so we could have all 3 kid’s heartbeat recordings in a bear. Madison picked out the guitar outfit...reminded me of when Mistie Doyle and Mark B. Weaver prayed for us to conceive at a prayer meeting 3 years ago and Mark prayed he would lead others into worship like his momma. Since God answered the first part of the prayer, I’d sure love it if he’d answer the second part too! #Jeremiah29

How big is GOD? .....the earth is His footstool.
But He’s not so big that He can’t dwell in your heart.
God sees your everything, hears your everything, knows your everything and is there for you 24/7.
He is bigger, stronger, wiser and so much more than your troubles, problems, worries, fears, and whatever else keeps you up at night.....He is more than able to help you in time of need.
Rest and be glad that the God of the universe, who created all things, is on your side because you’ve accepted His Son Jesus.
Talk to Him, seek Him, pursue Him, go after Him, be persistent, and know He’s heard you.....and then give Him thanks.....and stop asking because you have what you asked for in faith believing.
Had an awesome meeting with our @unveiledstudents
tonight! Lots of youth on fire for God!
Amen, you have to learn to let go of your past!
Amen, don’t quit yet. He has a plan for you.
When I first started actively praying I was unable to pray out loud. I didn't have enough confidence to hear my own voice even in the privacy of my own home. I wasn't sure how to start or where to begin...so I picked up a journal and started writing what was on my heart.
I started the entry with dear Lord and ended with amen (so be it). That journal turned into my prayer journal and by the end of the year I was amazed to see how well prayer really works!
Meditation, journaling and taking time to process your thoughts is beneficial in itself. It helps to quiet the noise of emotions and helps you realistically see what's going on...the addition of knowing someone is actually listening and working on your behalf is a game changer!

My heart has been heavy. I rejoice with my Venezuelan friends but I mourn for the horrific news about the abortion bill passed in New York. —
Romans 12:15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
There is nothing to be something without the action...
take action and watch the future happens 😇
Each Sunday we take time to pray for people. Every hand raised, every story written in, every family, relationship, or situation matters to God and it’s such an honour to stand and believe together for miracles! #miracles #jesus #prayer #prayerworks #believe
Not earned, not deserved, not works, not proves, not demonstrates..for those who BELIEVE.
YOU are perfect before God by BELIEVING, not earning. You can’t earn that!
So please guys, do us a favor, let your hurt go. Let the past go. I KNOW it’s a lot easier said than done, we go through these daily battles ourselves. We fight demons too. We have scars from our past as well. BUT we KNOW that we’re better of by constantly fighting these demons with faith (BELIEVING) ,prayer and action!
