Update on Charity - Sunday P.M.

"Oh give thanks to the Lord
For He is good!
For His mercy endures forever!"
Psalm 136:1

(Before anyone else gets worried because we haven't posted in a while, here is the latest and the greatest on Charity's condition.)

  • Well, after I posted on Saturday that the bacteria was found in Charity's blood, the Doctor came in and said that her blood culture had indeed come back negative! And that it had been negative for a while. (some nurse had told us that it had come back positive!?) Praise the LORD that the bacteria is gone!
  • Praise!! Charity's fever came down some today. Please continue to pray that she will not suffer from bouts of fevers like this.
  • Please pray that the doctors will be able to determine why her heart rate is so high. (120's when she isn't doing anything) It was normal on Thursday, but suddenly jumped up. Possibly because of the fever.
  • O.K. I saved the best news for last!!:-) Charity is coming home tomorrow!! She has the pick line, and we will have to put the antibiotics into that every four hours, so please pray for that. Also please pray that she will continue to regain health, and get a lot of much needed rest. We are not sure of the exact time of her release, (we have a house showing at 10:30 so y'all could pray for that too:-) but please pray that everything will go smoothly.
  • Thanks again for all your prayers and support during this ordeal! God has used you all to bless us so much, and to show His care and love. Please don't stop praying for Charity though! She has a long road ahead and will need much strength and perseverance in the coming days.

"The LORD is my strength and my song,
And He has become my Salvation!"
Psalm 118:14
