Update

Before I trade places with Bill, I thought I'd give you a quick update. Annie had a barium GI study done to see why she keeps upchucking. The doc said her tummy has a spasm in it--and they're not sure what is causing it. There's a possibility that it could be a result of the brain injury. The doc said they could reposition her g-tube so that her food intake completely sidesteps that spasm. More surgery? Yuck. Also, Annie will have a CT scan on her brain tomorrow to see if there's swelling on her brain that is causing the seizures.

Please pray that God would show us and the doctors what to tests to do and what tests not to do; what medicine to give and what medicine not to give. And for Annie's and our other kid's comfort and peace.

Thanks,

Jean

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Father God - I pray Your Word over Annie - renew Annie's mind, transforming her so that she may discern Your will - good, acceptable and perfect. In the name of her Healer and Savior, Jesus of Nazareth.
