My Sweet Granddaughter Francesca
Our Franny In the Hospital
My granddaughter Francesca
Francesca (Franny), we call her she is a very special child.
She was born with Spinabifida.
You ask what this is, I have never heard of this. That’s what I did when I met her eight years ago.
She was born with a hole in her back it is a birth defect. The doctors wanted her mother to abort her before she was born. My sweet daughter in law that does not believe in abortion said no, and I am so glad she did not.
Otherwise we would not have had the sweetest loving child I have ever met. She always thinks of others, she does not have a selfish bone in her body.
This little girl was not supposed to live past three months. Then the doctors gave her six months than a year.
Her mother never gave up; she has dedicated her life to take care of this child. She is a great mother and a great daughter in Law to me I can see where Franny gets her loving kind ways.
To stay alive Little Franny has gone through so many operations and then there are the operations to make her body more functional.
She is in a wheelchair and she has learned to walk with braces on her legs and form of crutches. Although she is not like other children she is so strong and wants and try’s to do what other children do and in some ways does more. I am so proud of her. She puts me to shame of being so determined and never giving up.
I am telling all of you that to tell you this.
I have been asking for prayer for my Granddaughter. I posted it on Facebook and Lord De Cross told me to write about it on the hub.
So I am.
Her surgery is tomorrow in San Antonio, Texas. There she is Already in the hospital. The surgery is 6 -8 hours long. I will not go into what the surgery is for but the doctors told us this is life threatening operation. We believe she will be all right and this operation will help her quality of life.
So I ask everyone to please pray for my granddaughter and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Franny, I just want you to know Grandmother loves you so much and I am praying for you and I have the world praying for you. There are so many people that love GOD and they believe like I do that HE is taking care of you!
Life without Franny would be so devastating. When I am visiting with Franny it is Franny and me we do everything together.
Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts and love you are sending her way.
God Bless you all!
