This has not been the day we expected when we woke this morning. We were concerned about some symptoms Katie was having (including a fever) and got on the phone with the folks at Children’s Mercy. They had us go to the ER for some evaluative tests, none of which explained the fever. Since Katie is a high risk patient, an unexplained fever is quite concerning, and the team at Children’s wants to be sure they are not missing anything.
So, after an afternoon/evening at Hutch Hospital, where we received excellent care (yes. Stop and reread that one), Katie and I are on our way via ambulance to Kansas City. The policy is to admit for at least 48 hours in a situation like this. Please pray for clarity, wisdom, healing…
Jonathan was a trooper to pack for two girls on the fly, and would like to come join us, if he can get the younger darlings taken care of. Another thing we’d appreciate prayer for.
And food. Special diets don’t mesh really well with unexpected multiple-day absences from home. Katie & I are both hungry and a bit worried about food.
I am going to have a moment of humbling honesty here. Our budget has been tight with all the needed diet changes. And a few weeks ago, J’s work announced a temporary cut in hours. Our bank balance this morning did not mesh well with this trip.
We are children of the Great Provider. We rest in that, and we ask you to pray with us for that provision.
