UPDATE - Liver transplant @ 8 months

UPDATE - As of earlier this week, all the swelling has gone down in little Malikai's belly, so there is a chance he may not need the surgery. His liver is still hard (to the touch) but he's doing MUCH MUCH better!

Thank You all SO much for your prayers for this family!

I'll update as I receive info.


Hi!

I have a friend who has a baby with Biliary Atresia (BA) and has already had surgery to correct it.

Unfortunately, he now needs a liver transplant.

He was transferred from Riley Children's Hospital to St. Louis Children's Hospital and is #8 on the list to get a liver.

He may be able to come home tomorrow while waiting for the surgery.

Please pray for him and his parents as this has been overwhelming. They have a little girl, about 3 years old, who has been left out in the cold. Not literally, but she's missing her mommy - as I'm sure you can understand.

Feel free to put him on any prayer chains/lists that you know of as this is a serious surgery and he's only weighing 10 lbs right now.
His name is Malakai.

Thank You VERY much for your prayers!

Aww, poor baby. I hope he is able to receive a transplant soon and best thoughts that the surgery and recovery goes perfect.
