Unexpected visit to Evergreen
That’s what happens when your little 6 month old baby gets a kidney infection and decides not to eat for over 8 hours. The infection, most likely due to the fact that she was born with some reflux in her kidneys, is now being treated with IV antibiotics. After 30 minutes (3 different nurses and five attempts) of trying to get the IV started they took a break and called in the resident expert. During the break Karissa called as many people as she could in that brief amount of time to pray for a successful next attempt. God answered the prayers of those who prayed and the 6th time was the charm. The last I heard Audrey was doing better and was even taking a bottle, which she has never done before. Karissa is weary, not only with everything that happened today, but also because the night before Audrey was up all night (now we know why) and only got a few hours sleep while I took a few shifts. Thanks for any prayers for our little one and her mama. This was not how we would have chosen to celebrate her half birthday today, but we know she is in the Lord’s hands.
