Katie Grace Is In The Hospital. We are sad today...

Katie Grace and Snuggle Bug

Our sweet friend, Katie Grace Groebner has been admitted to the hospital again. We are sad today. Prayers and thoughts with those we love. Please read what Katie Grace's Mom has sent to friends:

"Hi All,

Just a little note and request. Katie Grace has been admitted again to Lucile Packard Children s hospital. She has been doing so much in the Relay for Organs R Us and Bay to Breakers walk, along with school and dance she has kept going.

Her lungs on the other hand have developed a little weak point. The doctors are at odds as to what they are finding in her X-Rays but they all agree that there is something and are taking all precautions. Some think it is pneumonia others think it is an infection of sort. Either way they all agree that she needs antibiotics and observation.

Her Pulmonary Hypertension needs to be addressed if she has anything in her lungs. We are glad they are being proactive and taking all precautions. pneumonia is not something we can take for granted in her condition. We will be going for another chest x-ray.

Here's my request; Please pray that it is just viral and not pneumonia so that she can get out of here and be home playing with her doll house like normal.

Thank you,
Kathy Groebner (mom of Katie Grace 6 PHer)
In Gods Hands"
