Kevin: I was in the NICU visiting with Karsie and happened to be there when the surgeon was doing rounds. (I am in such awe of what he does and did for Karsie. I firmly believe God used Dr. Losasso to make a miracle just keeping Karsie alive after all of that trauma). He did a quick look over Karsie's organs and vitals and he said that her liver looks "perfect" and her bowels look excellent as well. He said they're doing as good as he would expect. He said that he probably won't do anything until she is a bit more stable. He wants to see that Karsie is off the high intensity ventilator and moved to a more standard ventilator plus her off of medication to regulate her blood pressure. Once those two things are looking good he will try to start working the organs back into the body, starting with the liver, which is the most important to get in at this point.
So, if you're like me and you need some specific things to pray for, in the next few days pray that Karsie's lungs start to strengthen to the point of being able to move to a standard ventilator, and that she starts to regulate her own blood pressure w/o medication.
