Back in the hospital tonight

This morning Bill and I debated about what to do, what to do...and after talking with Annie's pediatrician, we agreed she needed to go back down to the ER. She wasn't tolerating her feeds, and was getting behind on her daily fluid requirements, and like I said in the previous post, her seizures have been too frequent. So here we are again.

My theory about the seizures causing the nausea might be off-base. Annie's ACTH test from a few days ago came back high, so her problem might be as simple as just needing more hydrocortisone to treat her Addison's. But while we're down at Children's, we're going to investigate all systems thoroughly, so hopefully we'll get this nausea/vomiting/seizure conundrum figured out.

Thanks again for your prayers for Annie, (she was not very happy about going back into the hospital, and cried when we wheeled her into her room), our other kids, the doctors and nurses, Bill (he's with Annie tonight), and safe driving weather. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, eh?

And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7

Lord, I thank You that You are a God of provision and details. I submit this family's needs and details to you, from the safe travels on the interstate to the good night's sleep in an unfamiliar room. I thank You for leading the Sullivans back where they need to be for now, and for guiding their steps. I pray peace, traveling mercies and your healing grace upon this family. In Jesus' name. Amen.
