Another CHD Warrior...

Travis DiCarlo. Little CHD in heaven now.

He was recovering well after surgery on Thursday. Then suddenly he wasn't doing well. My heart and prayers to Nicole and Roger, my tears and heartache for the loss of Travis.

Nicole is one of the "heart sisters" behind

She only learned on Feb 4th during a heart "check up" of sorts, that he would need a specific surgery, an "extra" unanticipated one....

Last Thursday, this little cutie-pie kissed his baby sister good-bye and off to surgery he went. He passed away yesterday morning.

The pictures - please visit the link below and see him this past week, just before surgery. Then please, join me with prayers for his family...

I know the reality of CHD but I never want to believe it - I really don't want to believe it today... so please, take a moment to know a tiny bit of this sweet child, the photos with his mommy and daddy and sister... and see how beautiful he is... and cry with me:

"Maybe he's happy with Gwenyth in heaven, and allllll the other babies."

- Lillian


And all that may be true. But his mommy and daddy can't hold him anymore....

I know every moment they had will be a treasure.

I know.

But I also know...


  1. My heart aches for them... I pray them some measure of comfort in the days ahead...

  2. Oh, his sweet face makes my heart melt. I will be praying for the family of Travis.
