"What would have become of me had I not believed that I would see the Lord's goodness in the land of the LIVING. Wait, hope for and EXPECT the Lord. Be strong and of good courage and may your heart (Ned) be sturdy and enduring.....Yes, Wait For and Hope For and Expect the Lord."

Psalm 27:13-14 (Amp)

Big prayers!!

I'm running back over to the hospital tonight....they just called and Ned has spiked a fever of 104. The NICU tested all kiddos for MRSA today and Ned came back positive as a carrier. At the moment, they aren't sure if the fever is response to the MRSA, another infection or a virus. They are in the process of growing out cultrues, but results will take up to 48 hours. They have started him on two broad spectrum antibiotics. I'll update when I return tonight, just please pray that this passes....I have been so thankful not to have encountered any infection thus far. Just pray that what they have started him on will knock out whatever he has? Thank you

Betsy, Just checked in before going to bed....I wanted you to know I am praying for little Ned and asking God to help bring down his fever and allow the anitbiotics to do their work. I am also praying for you....that you will have the strength you need to be there for Ned and that God will give you an extra portion of His unexplainable peace. Sending love your way, Sherry
