Katelynn is in the ICU

Just a quick post...Katelynn is in the ICU at CHildren's Medical Center in Dallas. She has been here since last Thursday. She has been diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome, which means her kidneys are not working properly. They also think she may have some kind of lung disease, but they aren't sure. What they ARE sure of is that she is very, very sick. She is on a respirator, continuous dialysis and is heavily sedated. They expect her to be in the ICU another 1-2 weeksm then down in the Nephrology(kidney) wing another week or so.

I will give more details and pictures later, but I'm on a computer at the hospital and can't upload or spend a lot of time explaining all the particulars of her condition.

BUT...if you can all pray for her we would really appreciate it. Last Sunday we had 4 or 5 wards, as well as many friends and family, fasting for her and we have made some progress. So, the prayers are working so keep up the good work!! :) Thank you all so much for your wonderful support. I don't kow where we would be without our friends, families and the church. The gospel is SO amazing and SO important. LOVE to you all, and thank you, again, for your faith and prayers.
