Setback

I just got an email from the Keirseys...

The doctors have decided to hold off on the surgery for now.

Avery is still have some bleeding and they feel that the surgery would be too risky at this point. They believe that they may not be able to do the surgery until Avery is off of ECMO, but they don't believe she is strong enough at this point to hold her own without it. The doctors are discussing options.

Carissa said that basically they are "between a rock and a hard place."

Please pray for Avery, for the doctors who are making big decisions and for Shane and Carissa. I will update as soon as hear anything else.
