Last night we chatted with Shylah and Tarah via FaceTime. Shylah and Lance have a special brother/sister relationship and it is fun for all of us to watch them “catch up” virtually.
Unfortunately we still do not have any answers on why she is feeling the way she is. Fortunately there is no more fever and the fluids and antibiotics are helping. However, we are waiting on some more conclusive test results before they start talking about going home.
The good news is that if they do not find a bacteria infection, she could be out early Sunday. The bad news is that if they do find something or her blood counts aren’t where they need to be, they won’t let her go home until things are resolved.
Please pray for Shylah’s comfort and healing. Specifically, it would be a wonderful answer to prayer if she could come home late today. Please also pray for Tarah. These hospital stays are tough and never get easier. In many ways they are increasingly uncomfortable and hard.
Thank you for hanging in there with us and for your prayers and encouragement. For some reason the hospital seems to be a magnet for us around holidays, but we’re fortunate to have Grammie, Grandma and Papa all here to help during this stay.
Thank you all.
“May the Lord answer you when you are in trouble! May the God of Jacob protect you! May he send you help from his Temple and give you aid from Mount Zion. May he accept all your offerings and be pleased with all your sacrifices. May he give you what you desire and make all your plans succeed. Then we will shout for joy over your victory and celebrate your triumph by praising our God. May the Lord answer all your requests.” – Psalm 10: 1-5
