dear, dear friends
on Monday, my cousin Hailey, who was expecting her first child, went into labour and gave birth to the beautiful Addisyn Day. they soon noticed that baby Addi was having difficulties and, after running some tests, discovered that her heart valves were all messed up. along with that, she had water on her lungs and her kidneys weren't working the way they should.
she was scheduled for a bypass and open heart surgery on Wednesday, to do repair work on her heart. the procedure went down yesterday, seemingly without a problem, and we were all hoping and praying that this would be the beginning of the end.
it's not. i don't have the details, but i've just found out that she's in critical condition and is basically fighting for her life. so i'd just like to plead with all of you to keep baby Addi - as well as her mom, Hailey, and her dad, Nick, and all of their families in your thoughts and prayers.
i know bargaining with God isn't right; it isn't where i should be. but i've found myself pleading in the last half hour, begging. i can't even begin to imagine what it would feel like to be so close but so far from your child. i can't comprehend having to let go of someone so precious, so dear, without even getting the chance to get to know them.
i want to meet Addi. please, please, PLEASE... join me in praying for her.
