My Niece, Leah

Leah was discharged today (Tuesday) and is now at home with her family. Don't know if they ever figured out any more than that she had some kind of virus that really messed her up for a few days...thanks for your thoughts and prayer!


My niece, Leah, who is in town with her big brother and mom (Tricia's sister, Megan), has been having a rough couple of days. They took her to the ER last night because she was vomiting...they gave her a few IV's of stuff and sent her home where she slept well last night. But, today around noon, they called the ambulance to the local hospital and then was transfered up to the nearest children's hospital a few hours away in VA. That's about all I can tell you at this point.

Please, if you can, take a moment to pray for little Leah and/or stop by Megan's blog and leave a note of encouragement, we'd appreciate it!

Thanks.

Nate

Please ask your readers to pray for this woman and her unborn baby.

http://www.littleoneapril.blogspot.com/

This girl found out her baby has Trisomy 13 and likely won't live and the heart rate is low so they are possibly going in today to look at taking the baby - she is 33 weeks. She is young and a single mom - she will need our prayers.

mamarebekaah said...

I forgot to add this is a devout Christian woman, who needs prayers from all of our Christian readers. We all prayed for Gwyneth, as did she. Please extend her the same prayers in her time of need as she was there for your baby Gwyneth and your wife Tricia praying non stop for them along with us.
She could really use some lifting up at this critical time in her life and her daughters. My heart breaks for her.


We will pray for leah now too. thanks for telling us. keep us updated . thanks

We've had that happen with our children before. Just last week actually. I think it was some kind of food poisoning because no one else ever came down with it. But the one who did ended up in the ER getting rehydrated 3x. Of course, she's four. The smaller they are, the harder these viruses are on their little bodies. Glad she is doing better now!
