Prayers and Prayers

I heard from my Kristin this morning, and Gabby has been diagnosed with a liver disease called Biliary Atresia. Essentially, Gabby's bile ducts in her liver are dysfunctional and cannot be repaired and will never repair themselves - so her liver cannot drain bile. She is having another surgery today to see if they can do some things to help her liver drain in the interim, but in all likelihood, she will eventually need a liver transplant.

Kristin seems to be in good spirits, but please keep the family in your thoughts.

So sorry to hear about Gabby. It must be heartbreaking. Prayers that the doctors will be able drain the liver and that a matching donor will be found quickly.
