In the Hospital

From Jim:
After Shelley and Abbey got back from the clinic yesterday, Abbey seemed to be ok.  She took a 2 hour nap and nothing seemed too out of the ordinary.  Later on after her bath, Shelley thought she felt warm and took her temperature.  It was 101.7 under her tongue... we've found this is the most accurate place.  Anyway, Shelley called the doctor and she said that they would just directly admit her into the hospital so they could give her antibiotics and monitor her.  So, around 10:30pm, they headed off to the hospital.  This is the first time in Abbey's treatment that she's actually been admitted into the hospital for an overnight stay.  
Shelley called me this morning and said that they are doing fine.  Abbey fell asleep almost immediately when they got there, and she was still sleeping as of 9:15am.  Shelley said that she is going to check with the doctors when they do their rounds and see what their plan is.  Abbey's nurse told Shelley that they will give her another antibiotic at 11am and then another at 7pm.  So, most likely they will be there another night.  I will keep you all posted on what's going on with my 2 girls.  Please continue to keep our family in your prayers.  Thanks!

Oh, poor Abbey!! I got used to hearing that she is doing so well. I hope this passes soon and she is back at home playing in no time.

Some fluid and antibiotics will hopefully do the trick...fast!

Saying a prayer for you all!

Jim, we'll be praying! I hate being so far away, wish we could be closer. I guess the best we can do is leave Abbey and the rest of you in the hands of your creator. : ) I know there's no better place you'd rather be. Please let us know if we can do ANYTHING. Love you and miss you all.

Praying Abbey gets the rest she needs, her infection gone and she is back home soon. Also, in Shelley's absence, everything back at home runs smoothly.

I am praying for you and Shelley to keep the faith and be strong. Dont get discouraged--God is faithful and He will continue to heal Abbey. I am praying for Abbey's pains and fever to go away quickly.
