Clara Hardy: How Great Is Our God!

1 Comment

Robert Hardy is a childhood friend of mine (Jake’s). We spent lots of summer weeks splashing around the creek behind my grandparents’ house in Elberton, GA. Then we reconnected in college, and now stay in touch via the various social networks.

Three weeks ago Robert and his wife Chrissy welcomed their first child, a beautiful little girl named Clara. While Clara was in utero they learned she had a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), a birth defect that is sometimes fatal and always serious. They prepared for the fight of their life, and their friends around the world began to pray.

Clara had surgery a few days after birth to repair her hernia and get her organs in the right place, and since shortly after that has been on ECMO (similar to a heart-and-lung machine). A week ago she was losing progress, and doctors began to use language like “the end of medical options.” Yesterday she spent 30 minutes off the ECMO machine, breathing on her own, and they are working on weaning her off the machine entirely!

Clara is definitely not out of the woods. Her best case scenario involves months more of medical stuff. But we are rejoicing with the Hardys today, continuing to pray for for this sweet girl, and asking you to do the same. You can follow their blog for details.
