Update on Jen from PICU - 19 Aug

Dear friends,

Thank you for your prayers and notes and acts of encouragement for Jennifer, as she is doing day 5 in the Pediatric ICU.

Praise to The Lord in answering several prayers:
- We have a good attending Doc and got started in the right assessment and plan of treatment
- she had a PICC line placed successfully to help alleviate the iv line issues
- she has been relatively stable through the day, with her respiratory levels in the 20s and 30s
- avoided the bronchoscope procedure for the day, which was deemed to be too risky now

Please pray for
- All respiratory levels to get better and be weaned off the C-PAP tomorrow
- Be able to take and keep down the 4 doses of oral meds/day which were started today for a type of Pneumonia
- Get we'll enough to start on oral fluids (they just started feeding her thru IV today after 4 days) and eventually some food (she says she is hungry :-(
- To be transferred out of ICU to regular room, or better yet, home !!

Isaiah 43:1
 But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob,
and he that formed thee, O Israel,
Fear not:for I have redeemed thee,
I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

    Dear Vijay, Ammu and family,
    We were so sorry to read of this turn of events for Jennifer! We continue to pray for her and the whole family. Job 23:10 "But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold." We are praying and trusting the Lord to continue to watch over Jen and bring her safely through this difficulty also! We love all of you.
