Rash Worsens - Back to Lurie's

The roller coaster continues...

Ava is going back to Lurie's due to worsening rash/lesions on her face that have spread to her body as well. The lesions are oozing and crusting; it's possible she has a viral condition called eczema herpeticum (think cold sore virus, but spread beyond the face and much worse). Ava had eczema herpeticum when she was about a year and a half old, and that was very difficult. Scratching the lesions can spread the virus to other parts of her body, in addition to making her susceptible to other bacterial infections.

Please pray for:

  • Ava's healing and proper treatment as needed
  • peace and alleviation of pain & discomfort
  • Mike & Esther - it's hard to watch Ava suffer
  • the Lee family as Mike will stay home with Gwen
  • God to continue revealing His glory and love even in these difficult situations
Thank you for your continued prayers.
