Not Again

Sophia's right on comment this morning when I told her Eli was in the hospital, "Not again." Unfortunately, Eli's arm became bright red, swollen and painful yesterday evening which led to an ER visit and admittance to Saint Francis Children's Hospital. The whole thing is highly suspect of the last time Eli's other arm became infected. I'll keep you posted as we get test results and physician opinions today.

Please pray:
  • the infection heals
  • if the rod must come out after only six weeks, pray that the centralization worked quickly and will need no additional procedures
  • no medication side affects
  • wisdom for the docs and compassion for the nurses

Love you all,
Melissa

PS. Flock is when the LLH staff meets for prayer every morning before work. Did you know that?
