Keep the prayers going for little Vicki

Here's today's pictures of lil Vicki, complete with her oxygen.
No incubators to keep her body temperature up,
so she is wrapped in blankets.

Proud Papa Sanu watches over the nurse as she cares for his littlest pride and joy.

Uncle James keeps a good watch, too.

Well, my friends, looks like we have another wee one to pray through an impossible situation, this is one tiny little baby. Yet, we know, in Him all things are possible. Its a miracle she has pulled through this far... lets storm the gates of heaven with lots of prayers for her and her family. Thank you.

Note to James from Mama Vicki: "Hmmm... As I look closely at this photo of you, James, I notice that your feet are hanging out of the shoes you have on. Out of all those shoes you gave out, are you telling me not ONE PAIR fit you? Knowing you, you most likely gave them away before thinking of yourself. Thanks for all you do James and family, We love you."
