Please pray for Gracie

I would like to ask everyone who is reading this to please take a moment to pray for baby Gracie. I first asked you to pray for her several weeks ago.

Since then she has had her ups and downs, but it seemed as if she was about to turn a corner. However, according to the latest update on her Caring Bridge page, it seems as if things have taken a turn for the worse. Following is the entry that her mom, Amanda, made this afternoon at 1:00pm.

URGENT!

THINGS HAVE TAKEN A TRAGIC TURN THIS MORNING. IN THE LAST 40 MINUTES GRACIE HAS BEEN CODED THREE TIMES IN THE PICU.

AT ONE TIME SHE FLAT-LINED AND RECEIVED CHEST COMPRESSIONS.
THE DOCTOR ON CALL SAID HER HEART IS LOCKING UP AND THE VENTRICLE IS STOPPING FUNCTION AND THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS CAUSING THIS.

PLEASE PRAY
GOD IS IN CONTROL -TODD AND I ARE HEART SICK AND VERY EMOTIONALLY DISTRAUGHT. PLEASE PRAY. WE WILL UPDATE AS SOON AS WE CAN.

Here is Gracie's Caring Bridge link if you would like to receive updates or if you would like to read more about the time she has spent in the hospital:

Thank you.
