Our daughter Gabriella was diagnosed in April 2009 with a severe and irrepairable case of Myocardial Bridging and Restrictive Cardiomyopathy. September 25, just before being listed for her new heart, she suffered a left MCA stroke, imparing her right arm abilities and taking away her speech. She was listed in February 2010 for a new heart and got her sparkly new heart and second chance at life on May 17, 2010. This blog has transitioned from a diary of our simple life to a log of Gabriella's status as proves what a warrior she is. Please, keep her and our family in your prayers!
