Fervent Prayer Needed

Peyton saw the Infectious Disease specialist this afternoon.  We saw him for the first time a couple weeks back and he changed her antibiotics.  She actually went downhill for a bit afterwards - enough to where we were starting to get a bit concerned about needing to go to the ER, but it never got to that point.  We saw him today as a follow up.  Peyton is no better or worse right now than before the antibiotics were changed.  Therefore, it's not likely this mycobacterium which has been making her so sick.  As for what it is, I have no clue.  However, there's no point in keeping her on antibiotics for this if they aren't actually making her better.  The last thing we need is to keep all kinds of antibiotics going and discovering down the road sometime that she's become resistant to them.

So now we wait.  We really need lots of prayers for Peyton now.  This is her first time off all antibiotics since the beginning of February.  Even before that, she spent the better part of the year before off and on antibiotics.  We're concerned about what happens now that she's off of them.  I expect the next couple days might continue as usual, but I worry about the days and weeks after that.  The last thing we need (yes, I realize this is a second "last thing" in this entry!) is for her to be winding up in and out of the hospital like she was all last year.  So please please pray for her health to remain stable (or even just get better altogether!!!) and we aren't thrown into chaos again.

James 5:16 "...The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." (NKJV)

Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding." (NKJV)

Will keep you posted on how things go.
