523589_4740779597109_1289790769_n

Although we know that Kilah has already endured more than any child should have to, she is now faced with another surgery.

She will be under-going surgery next week. Doctors will be placing a shunt to relieve the pressure in her head. She is currently suffering with horrible headaches so doctors are hoping this will give her some relief.

We will post more information after the surgery – but please, everyone, keep this sweet angel in your prayers! She is strong and a fighter!
