Thanks for Praying: updated

Thank you so much for your cover of prayer. From here on out, we start counting up each day.

Ava seems to be having some sort of reaction... she's complaining of a stomach ache and having some difficulty breathing but no wheezing. Thanks for your continued prayers against reactions and infections! We'll keep you posted.

Update: It's not totally clear what's causing Ava's symptoms. It's possible she's reacting to one of the blood pressure meds, so they are switching that and seeing if that helps. (Her BP has been high, around 15o). They wonder if Ava's stomach pains may be causing her anxiety, making her feel short of breath or feeling that it's difficult to breathe when she may not be having true bronchoconstriction. If this is true, it may be difficult to discern when she's really having a serious reaction. Either way, her stomach pains are real so we pray for discernment in knowing how to go about addressing her symptoms. She's also on a number of different meds, which opens the door to a variety of possible side effects. Thanks for your prayers! The Lord continues to lead our way.
