Please pray for Kaylie!

I blogged some time ago that some friends of mine were expecting a baby with a two-chamber heart and only one kidney. Kaylie Faith was born yesterday afternoon and weighed in at 5 lbs 4 oz and is 16 1/4 inches long. That weight is actually very good -- they were afraid she'd be under five pounds and the surgeon wanted her to be at least at 5 with a little extra body fat to get her through the heart surgery. That is scheduled for tomorrow.

Her dad tells me that this surgery is done with amazing frequency, and he has great confidence in the surgeon. But please pray that things go well, and pray that her dad G., her mom K. and her big sister E. are all comforted and strengthened as Kaylie gets the help she needs to survive outside her mommy's womb.

UPDATE on my friend Christi: She came home from the hospital on Monday! She looks amazing, she feels great. Now the trouble is keeping her still so she can heal up completely. She wants to go back to work (she is a nurse and runs the local Wound Care Center for people with burns, skin ulcers and other chronic wounds).
