Saturday, October 6, 2007 - Prayer Request

I just received this email from Jodi. Please be praying for Olivia today. Please be in prayer for the doctor's as they take care of Olivia. Please pray they will know how best to treat her.

We’re worried about Olivia right now. The doctor called this morning and said that they had to stop her feedings. Her abdominal girth had grown by 2 cm. They did an x-ray and it showed a lot of gas and distention. They worry about something called NEC (necrotizing enterocolitis) which is very very serious. They don’t believe that’s what it is and are just being extra cautious. Some blood work was done and it has come back okay so far. They put a tube down to her stomach to get rid of some of the gas and are going to do a repeat x-ray. We should hear back anytime from the doctor and we will let everyone know what we find out. Please always keep her in your prayers!!

Lovely Olivia, I know that the weeks since your early birth have been rough for both you and your parents. I pray that you grow stronger with each and every day and heal quickly from whatever is bothering your tummy and all that lies ahead. I also pray that your mother and father are given great strength during this tough time.
Respectfully,
Shanon
