Just a quick update

Just a quick update before I collapse into bed.

Kaylee experienced some complications with the surgery. She bleed badly when coming off the bypass which the doctors were all set up and prepared to deal with. She did keep bleeding badly though and she was given lots of blood and clotting factors to stop the bleeding and keep her going. Unfortunately this means we need to watch her shunt very carefully to make sure that the clotting factors given to Kaylee to save her life don't cause the shunt to fill up with clots. It is a juggling act for the doctors at the moment. There are a few different options to take if things go badly in the next 24 hours, one being to go back in for another surgery. She is being watched very closely in PICU at the moment.

Jon is here with me, the other kids are with Bill and Kester.

Please continue all prayers.

The earliest we are likely to know more is tomorrow evening, but it may be days.

Praying for you and your little one. It's been years since we've spoken, but I think about you and your family often.

I hope that Kaylee continues to be a strong fighter.
