On January 23, President Trump asked the country to pray for a little Texas girl who was about to endure an upcoming surgery for a rare brain condition. Following the surgery, it seems those prayers have been answered.
“Sophia is out of ICU,” said Scott Andy Peters on Facebook. “She is in a regular room and doing well! Physical Therapist says she looks great. She is eating pizza and watching Frozen, getting back to her normal, goofy, silly self.”
Last Friday, Sophia Maria Campa-Peters, 9, of Brownfield, Texas, endured surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital to help repair “a rare disease that causes the blood vessels in her brain to narrow and close,” according to a statement from the White House.
On Monday a Twitter page that was set up for the girl indicated that she was doing “so great” that doctors were even considering sending her home.
When the White House caught wind of her pending surgery, President Trump took action. According to Fox News, as Maria was about to endure her surgery, she had originally planned for 10,000 people to pray for her. But after President Trump caught wind of it, that number greatly increased.
“We want to make sure she gets that and far exceeds it,” said Sanders during a press briefing. “So today, Sophia, I’m here to tell you that millions of people from every corner of the world will be praying for you on January 26th.”
Sanders added, “And among those will be people and all of us here at the White House, including President Trump. He told me to tell you to keep fighting, to never give up, keep inspiring us all, and never, ever lose faith in God. With Him, all things are possible.”
The character and grit that Maria has displayed during the course of her surgeries since her diagnosis has left her doctors “dumbfounded,” said Sanders, and she “has faced each one of them with a fearless exuberance for life that warms the heart of everyone she meets.”
Please continue to pray for Maria, for her healing. In recent news, a Texas dad died after a sand tunnel collapsed on him during a family vacation to Florida.
