Prayer needed for Josie

Update on Josie:
My son called earlier this evening and said the doctor had ruled out RSV or the flu. He thinks now it's just some sort of virus. He said they tried to start an IV to keep her from dehydrating but after sticking her 6 times, couldn't get one started! They gave her Pedialite in a bottle which she drank and kept down. She is a breast fed baby so the fact that she took the bottle is a miracle in itself. Then later this evening my son called my daughter and said they put her back on milk and she was keeping it in too. They are keeping her overnight just to be on the safe side but may let her go home tomorrow if nothing changes.

Thank you all so very much for your prayers. I knew I could count on you to be there for me. I know some of you had already visited my blog and commented before I posted this prayer request. Please continue to pray for her that she will keep improving.

Saturday evening my son called and said they needed my help. The baby had been awake all night on Friday night and they hadn't had any sleep. I went up there and spent Saturday night with them. She had a lot of gas and was sneezing some. After I got there she seemed to be fine and slept 5 hours straight. When I left there yesterday she was temperature, not fussy, just resting good. Then last night he called and said she got worse and had a fever of 99.3 and was vomiting. He said she sounded congested too. They talked to a nurse practioner and she told them to keep a check on the fever. If it went to 100 they needed to take her to the hospital. They made it through the night okay but took her to her pediatrician this morning. My son just called and said they were putting her in the hospital to run some tests because she may have RSV.

I ask that you please pray for my baby. When they are that young you don't know what's wrong and it's scary. I know I can count on you all. I have 2 grandchildren out of school for the holiday here with me today so I'll go to the hospital later on. He's going to keep me informed and I'll try to let you all know something as soon as I can.

Good Morning Hope,
Sorry to hear about Josie. Prayers are going up from me for her. I do hope it's nothing serious. She may be just dehydrated and needs some extra fluids to help her. Our girls didn't get out of School today but I know alot did. I will be checking back and forth to see if there is any news from you. Just know you and Josie and the rest of the Family are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care my friend and hopefully the other 2 Grandkids will keep you occupied. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love, Hugs, & Prayers,
Karen H.

Praying Right now:

Father God, you know the needs of Hope's precious grandaughter. You knew her from her mother's womb. You know the very number of hairs on her sweet head. You know the needs of her small little body. In the name of Jesus, we ask you to meet the need of her body, to bless her with Healing, and we will claim it in Your name.
Father we ask you to comfort her scared family right now. We ask that you give them peace because she is in the hands of the Creator of Heaven and Earth. We ask you, in faith, to show Yourself to her family through Josie and her Healing. In all things we give thanks Lord, so we thank you for the opportunity to lift Josie's name before Your Throne. In Jesus's Holy and Precious Name, Amen.

Love you Hope.

Good Evening Hope,
"PRAISE GOD" it wasn't nothing too serious. Hopefully she will get to come in the morning. I will still keep Josie in my prayers and prays that she will be able to keep her liquids down. I have been re-doing my blog, so if you get a chance to stop by, don't panic. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Hope, I just read your post about Josie, and I am praying for her continued healing. Here in NC there is a virus going around that is really hard to shake. Bless her heart, I hate they had to stick her six times and then still couldn't get the iv in, but thank God she is drinking and staying hydrated. Keep us posted.

Dearest Hope,

I have already sent up prayers that Josie will be okay by recovering from her sickness, and I will continue to remember her, you and the rest of the family in my prayers.

Please keep us posted.

Love and Prayers,

Oh dear, I do hope Josie's able to come home on Tuesday. A sick baby is so worrisome. They can get so sick so fast, and you feel so helpless.

I'm praying, Hope...

Love and hugs,

Thanks for stopping by, Hope.

I'm glad the baby is heading home. It's always a fright when those little ones get sick.
