SEE A SHORT VIDEO OF WHEN BABY BLOSSOM CAME INTO THE CLINIC LATE FRIDAY NIGHT. She does not feel one bit good.

12 week old "Blossom" has the worst heart mumur I have felt to date. She can not wait to have it repaired. We transported her down to College Station,Texas, home of Texas A&M vet school, this past weekend because she simply cannot wait.

Texas A&M is taking her in as an emergency later on today, if we can raise the needed funds.

This will be our 25th Heart Murmur patient.
We have done this life saving surgery 24 times before.

Can you turn on your heart light once more for little Blossom? Her surgery will run right at $2000.00 in order to save her life.

UPDATE: Monday Evening

Baby Blossom is now down at Texas A&M. Dr. Roland just called. Baby Blossom is in congestive heart failure. She could not have waited even one more day. They are treating her tonight with Lasix, for the fluid build up in her chest. They are doing her heart surgery TOMORROW, Tuesday, at 1:30 P.M. They usually do these surgeries on Wednesdays, but hers will be tomorrow. We have only a few hours left to raise the needed funds. The estimate they just gave me today is for between $2000.00 and $2400.00.

Update: Tuesday 4:30 P.M.

This is an update on Baby Blossom who was due to have heart murmur surgery today at 1:30 P.M. at Texas A&M University. They just called and they had to move her back a bit. She will have surgery later on today. We won't know anything until later on tonight. I will put up an update as soon as we know anything! Please keep praying Love, Robin

UPDATE! 9:00 P.M.! Blossom made it after an up and down surgical experience! Thank GOD she was at Texas A&M or we would have lost her!

Turn on Your Heartlight
By Neil Diamond

Come back again
I want you to stay next time
Cause sometimes the world ain't kind
When people get lost like you and me

I just made a friend
A friend is someone you need
But now that he has to go away
I still feel the words that he might say

Turn on your heartlight
Let it shine wherever you go
Let it make a happy glow
For all the world to see

Turn on your heartlight
In the middle of a young boy's dream
Don't wake up too soon
Gonna take a ride across the moon
You and me

He's lookin' for a home
Cause everyone needs a place
A home's the most excellent place of all
And I'll be right here if you should call me

Turn on your heartlight
Let it shine wherever you go
Let it make a happy glow
For all the world to see

Turn on your heartlight
In the middle of a young boy's dream
Don't wake up too soon
Gonna take a ride across the moon
You and me

Turn on your heartlight now
Turn on your heartlight now
