Thank you~~

Baby Abigail actually had a better day today.... AND we got a "diagnosis" as to what is wrong with her! Apparently, she developed an ileus (paralyzed section of the bowel) after the viral illness. It is causing the vomiting, gas, diarrhea, etc. that she is experiencing. Fortunately, her pediatrician thinks that it will heal itself, but will just take a little time. We will have to be in the hospital with her so that she can receive IV support until she is able to be adequately hydrated from the bottle alone. Her viral counts were still high today, and she does not feel so great..... very fussy..... just gives mommy and daddy and chance to snuggle her a little more, though!! I think the stress of all this has caused some postpartum issues that I was having (that we THOUGHT were resolved!) begin to resurface as well. Hopefully they will go away soon, too!
You are all just precious to me to remember our family in your prayers. You will never know how much that means! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Please pray that we can come home SOON!
Much Love,
Jennifer

My heart goes out to you all and your dear little girl suffering with the ileus.I had one myself 7 years ago- a post op complication- and can't image how distressing it must be for your little one.
Hang in there and try to rest in His grace at this trying time.

Jennifer,

I have watched for you in my bloglines and wondered if things were okay. Since your last post, I have been prayerful for you and your baby, hoping she was improving day by day.

With each baby, I think the pp stuff is contained but it does always seem to sneak up in unexpected ways and during a time when I try to pin it on something else. Prayers while you rest and wait on Him in this season.

I found your blog through Mrs. Wilt's quite awhile ago. I've missed your posts but understood how busy you must be with a new baby. I'm praying for you both!! God hears our prayers and answers them!!
