Baby K

My cousin just had beautiful, identical twin girls 11 days ago. Baby K had to have a major open heart surgery at only 6 days old and has been fighting to recover since then. She had a pretty major set-back last night and I just want all of my friends to please add her onto their prayer list.

They're in Dallas since that's where the best heart specialist is, so it's really hard for the family since she's not here at home. I just can't understand why certain things have to happen. We've known for some time that she had this heart defect and that 25% of babies don't survive (all babies require 3 surgeries), but I never accepted that it could happen to her.

It has broken my heart today to know what my cousin is going through and how hard little K is trying to fight. Please pray for them...


  1. I'm going to pray extra hard for baby K! Your cousin, baby K and you are in my prayers tonight! I can't imagine what that poor mom is going breaks my heart to think of little ones having to have surgery. :(

  2. Oh my goodness, the whole family is in my prayers, I can't imagine what they must be going through. Your cousin is lucky to have you :)

  3. Oh no! What happened? She had been doing so good! Are you still headed down there this weekend? Call me when you get a chance. They are definitely in our prayers!

  4. She'll be in our thoughts, hopin' for the very best for her and your family!
