Baby McKenzie is Here!

You'll remember that Heather has been keeping us up-to-date on the situation with her sister's unborn baby McKenzie. Well, as of yesterday she is no longer unborn! Bethany's water broke and McKenzie was born by emergency Cesarean yesterday. She was 5 pounds, strong and very alert. She is breathing well despite being 6 weeks early and has been transferred to Portland where she will undergo surgery to begin addressing some of the challenges she faces. Please keep her and her family in your prayers!

Welcome to the world baby McKenzie! And congratulations to mom, dad and the rest of the family. You're all in our prayers.

Update: I just spoke to Heather who said that McKenzie got out of shunt surgery about an our ago and is doing well!

  1. Praise God!
    How is the fluid on the brain?


  2. Bethany: Lyndsay and I are thinking of you and your family. Rejoice in every little accomplishment and appreciate every minute of every day.
    Be strong and keep faith that God is watching over sweet McKenzie.
