I only have a minute, but I just wanted to put up a quick post to ask you to pray. Abbey started feeling sick around dinner time last night (Tuesday night) and was complaining that her belly was hurting most of the night. She wouldn't eat and hardly wanted to pick her head off her pillow. This afternoon she came down with a fever. We had to take her to the hospital for them to check her blood and examine her. She got a dose of antibiotics and we have to go back again tomorrow for her to get a second dose. They are treating it like it's a bacterial infection in her blood, but we won't know for sure if it is that or a virus for a few days as they are watching her blood in a culture. They were possibly going to keep us overnight, but the doctor felt o.k. with sending us home by what they saw in her blood tonight. Please pray that it ends up not being a bacterial infection and that her fever would clear up quickly. Also, she has eaten next to nothing for over 24 hours, so please pray that her belly would start to feel normal and that she would get her appetite back and start to feel like herself again quickly. Thank you and we'll let you know how she's doing tomorrow.
