In praying for a sweet little family that I have come to "know" over the past weeks? An aunt of a child born with hydrocephalus contacted me telling me about her sweet niece, Seeley, that had been born in Omaha 10 weeks ago. She found my blog through Michelle's blog and we had been emailing back and forth for the past 8 or so weeks. Recently Seeley's mom, Lori, had also commented on my blog. They have not had the most positive stay in the NICU, but after 9 long weeks, the plan was to do a g button/fundoplication surgery and she would be able to go home within a couple weeks. I was cheering with them.
The surgery was Monday, and I recieved an email from Seeley's aunt today saying that Seeley had contracted an infection from the surgery and went into cardiac arrest early this morning.. They were able to bring her back after 45 minutes, but the damage has been done, and they have said that Seeley is now "brain dead. The parents will have to make the decision to let her go. This absolutely breaks my heart. It reminds me of how quickly things can change.
If you are so inclined...would you join me in praying. I know the family would greatly appreciate it!
