Prayer request for Adah

Macie's new heart friend Adah will be going in for her heart transplant this morning. Please keep Adah and her family in your prayers. Then next few days will be trying days. Our God in an amazing God and is with them. Adah's family is asking for prayers for her donor family as well.
Adah has made it through the transplant. The transplant went very well, the next 24-48 hrs are critical. The doctors and her surgeon have a good outlook. Thank you for uplifting Adah and her family during this time.
Posting from Adah's familys page -
Specific Prayer Requests
Two Very Important Things:Adah’s temperature is spiking! We need it to go down and stay down immediately. They don’t know the cause of why it’s going up yet. It needs to go down NOW!Secondly, her right ventricle still hasn’t played very nice with the transplant. This may be the cause of the temperature spike. Regardless, the pressures need to stabilize for the doctors to feel comfortable to move forward with anything else.
For those of you who’ve had a loved one in the hospital, you understand that it’s difficult to watch all of the monitors and see the ‘numbers’ go up and down. It’s been very stressful the last few hours, and it’s going to be a challenging night. I think tonight will be the most difficult night.
Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement.
2/29 - Afternoon - from Adah's page
She's doing great! The doctors said that her "numbers are perfect" and that they wished all transplants happened like Adah's! That's a praise to our Heavenly Father!
We're still not out of the woods, but we're at least heading in the right direction! Thank you Jesus!
