Please pray...

Annabel is again in much pain. We were in the ER early hours of the morning and they were so quick and attentive. I am so appreciative when they see us enter that we are whisk right back to a room, doctor in immediately and xrays, labs, urine drawn. The abdominal xray isn't conclusive, could be illeus, obstruction. She isn't distended at all and very little movement or sounds. We can't sit her up at all without so much discomfort and vomiting. Shows positive for UTI but not a big one, and basically she is always positive. We know when it needs to be treated and at this time isn't her issue. They are taking cultures to see if infection in her central line due to fever and vomiting. I am so praying that she doesn't have another infection or I may find myself wanting to pull this line and never put one back. (That is just an emotional response.) So the doctor said he didn't have a clue as to what to do and said we could be admitted or go home and see our pedi in her office today. Well we just saw her and Annabel barely made the trip there. She was in so much pain and then vomited while Dr. B was examining her. She was leaning toward the pain being from cramping and going to give med to address this. When she vomited she is leaning toward illeus/obstruction. So she doesn't want any medicines going into her gut until she sees us again. She gave us the option to return home for awhile and if we can make it til tomorrow she will recheck, if not back to hospital. I am so blessed to see how they trust and try to do everything to keep us out. We love our hospital locally, but know with our wonderful nurses we need to stay home. I don't like to ask for prayers unless she is critically sick but today the pain is great and I appreciate them.

I am praying right now Cathy and am so sorry this is happening. Thank you for letting us know that it is urgent. I love Annabel and want her to not be in pain. I love you and don't want you to be in pain either my friend. Continued prayers here for you both.

HATE to hear that Princess Annabel is in so much pain. Praying for relief and praying for the medical staff to figure this out quickly so our precious girl is back to her usual happy and engaged self.

Sorry that you are having to go through this with her Cathy. Always so much harder on the Mommy, no matter what.

Praying!!! Praying!!! Praying!!!

Love you girls.
