the fellowship of prayer



would you mind praying for my 5 year old nephew (click here) ... last night he was flown from the northern mining town they live in, to a larger hospital down south ... he has some sort of infection they can't identify at the moment ... spiking a high fever ... etc. ... it's a concern when these little ones get ill ... thank you ...

UPDATE:

thank you for praying! they think they have found the main cause of the fever & infection and he is now on antibiotics ... hopefully no surgery is required ...

Yes, I have prayed for him, bless his heart. How scary when something like that just comes out of nowhere and the little ones are in danger. Hoping to hear good news Monday...hugs to you!

I will pray for your nephew tomorrow morning in my quiet time.

Our great God is on the throne and in control!

Yes, sure will. Remember my granddaughter Hannah? Sounds awfully much like what happened to her. After a spinal tap, chest x-ray and further bloodwork, still NO CAUSE for the fever, letharic condition, etc. I think maybe God took care of it, but admit I wish we knew what was going on. Will pray for God to undertake for your little nephew. Little Hannah seemed in some pain even for the next week or so, but now is back to herself...

maggie ann, tina, rachel, elizabeth ... thank you for praying! they think they have found the main cause of the fever & infection and he is now on antibiotics ... hopefully no surgery is required ... and i'm hoping that his mom (my baby sister) might also have a renewed faith experience through this ...

tina ... yes, he's still on IV but hopefully they have stopped the infection in it's tracks! these little ones are so resilient, aren't they?

Elizabeth said...

Our little Hannah also had to have antibiotics via the veins as well as the usual way once she got home. There are some very bad bugs out there. SO glad your nephew looks on the mend!!
