Enigma. noun (plural enigmas)
Something puzzling, mysterious or inexplicable
A riddle, or a difficult problem

Danny, one of Annie's docs, sat down to talk with us this afternoon and said that she's an enigma. And all indications are that they're not going to discharge her from the hospital until they have the cause of her hypertension figured out. So to help them track trends, the nurse put a 24-hour blood pressure cuff on Annie's arm that measures her blood pressure every 20 minutes or so. It's still unclear as to where the problem originates--her brain, her endocrine system, or one of her medications. So, pray that they have clear understanding as they continue to monitor the situation, take more tests, and review the results.

God can do things outside the laws of nature, and I pray that He would for Annie. We feel your prayers too--please keep sending them up.

Jean

He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him. Daniel 2:22

Lord, You are mighty and strong and all knowing. We are but part of Your holy plan. Perhaps this is why none of this makes sense. Annie should not be an enigma--she should be out playing in the dirt. But...as I write this, I know it's a fallen world in which we live. Even Annie. You are amazing, and You have lifted this family from the depths of despair. I ask you to do so again. I ask for a MIRACLE! I come boldly to the throne in hope that You will hear and answer this prayer. I ask for Your everpresence to be felt among the Sullivans and Annie's medical team during this time. I ask for Your strength. Your patience. Your rest and peace. We cannot do this without you. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Thank You, Thank You. Thank You. YOu are the Lord, and there is no other. In Jesus' name. Amen.

P.s. Thank you for the updates. I am checking daily so I know how to pray. xxxxooogretchen

I can just hear you, Gretchen--"...she should be out playing in the DIRT!" Thanks for your prayers--it WOULD be a miracle for her to be out playing in the dirt!
