Meet Katie

Katie is now 6 weeks old.

Last night while breast feeding her mom fell asleep, when she woke up Katie was not breathing.

Katie was taken to the hospital where they worked on her for 20 minutes to get her heart started again.

As of now, she has been transported to the local children's hospital where she is on a respirator, in a coma, has some brain damage (although they are not sure as to what extent) and in critical condition.

This is my great niece, please pray that she will get through this. Please pray that if it is her time to go, she will go quickly and the Lord will wrap his arms around her and our family and help us through this.

The doctor's have told us that it is definitely SIDS and there was nothing anyone could have done to prevent this.

Please pray

Oh Karin,

I am so sorry. I just saw this post. I feel terrible for slacking in my visits.

My heart goes out to you and your family and you are in my prayers.
