Jenna Meadows Prayer and Support Group
I ask all men and women of faith to join with me now and invite others to join with me in lifting up this extraordinary little girl, her father and mother in our prayers until the LORD hears and she is healed. This young girl and family have been through so much and have shown so much courage and strength in the face of adversity.
Please seek and join her group as well as sending invitations to others to lift them up in prayer. It was by no accident I found that group page last year and by no accident that I plead to you now. Our LORD is the Living God and He is capable of healing her, if it is his will and I hope it is. Can we stand in agreement asking in the Lord Jesus' name for her to have the Holy Spirit come to her aid? Thank you and God Bless.
Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; Romans 15:30 (KJV)
I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech. Psalm 17:6 (KJV)
And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. Matthew 14:14 (KJV)
Jenna was born on April 8, 2007 with a very severe and rare heart condition known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia and Multiple Aorta Pulmonary Collateral Arteries. This CHD (Congenital Heart Defect) is defined as a large hole in the lower chambers of the heart and a small hole in the upper chambers of the heart, along with no connection between the heart and lungs (pulmonary artery), no pulmonary valve, aortic arch on the left side of the heart instead of the right, and many small stenosed arteries to the lungs (which her body developed in place of the pulmonary artery). She has had multiple tests completed, along with 5 heart catheterizations and balloon angioplasties (to help increase the blood flow to her lungs),a stent placed in her right lung, and 1 open heart surgery- Unifocalization and RV-PA conduit placement (which is the enlarging and combining of the current arteries to her lungs and the insertion of a conduit for the nonexistent pulmonary artery). She also had a graft repair on her right leg due to a complication after a cath from a blood clot. She will have to endure life long care and many more surgeries. Despite all of her medical issues, this has not slowed her drive to be a typical toddler. Jenna runs, plays, and climbs just about everywhere she can get to. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.So, we are thrilled with her progress at this point. I cannot say it enough, it is hard to believe that she just had heart surgery two weeks ago and she is such a ROCKSTAR!! Tonight she was so happy, jumping up and down on the bed, laughing and playing, it was wonderful to see. It just warms my heart and thrills me inside to see her doing so well. She caught a break and we hope it stays this way for awhile. I just tell everyone that Jenna heard us talking and planning for her to stay in Cincy for a while and she of course decided to do the opposite, COME HOME! It is always her way, no one elses. Plus I think that she decided that holiday food is much better homemade and not from the hospital-haha. We would like to thank everyone so much, I don't think that I can express it enough, how grateful we are for the support that we have received during this whole process. It means soooooo much to us that everyone supports our little girl and prays for her and us every day. We truly believe that she has only made it this far due to her determination and the power of prayer. So THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. I will try to keep everyone posted on her status more often then I have in the past. I just tend to lose track of time and forget that Jenna has such a large fan club. Thanks again for everything and I will post again soon.
Love you all,
Jenny, Justin and Jenna
