Accidents happen and life changes abruptly. Some homeschool co-op friends of ours are walking through a very frightening and serious trial right now and if you think to pray for them, we would be so grateful.
Emily, 14, who is in Joel's co-op classes and in the biology class I tutor, is a very accomplished gymnast. But on last Wednesday, a terrible accident happened. She missed a vault in practice and landed wrong, hitting a knob on the vault and severing a piece of her kidney. She has been in the hospital ever since. The doctors determined that they could save her kidney but she has had a lot of internal bleeding and over the weekend she has suffered various complications, including developing pneumonia and infection elsewhere that they are having a hard time pinpointing. She is in a lot of pain and had a feeding tube and a drain inserted today. She is in the ICU and is a very sick young lady right now.
-that the doctors would find and be able to treat the source of the infection
-that her fever would go down and the pain would decrease
-that the kidney would heal and no more complications arise
-that the Lord would give strength and comfort to her family. and wisdom for the decisions that need to be made by doctors and familt
-that those of us who know the family would be strong arms of support for them now
-that those who know Emily would be moved to see the hand of God in her life and be drawn to the Savior that Emily and her family know and love
Thank you for lifting your petitions to God for this precious girl and her family. I'll keep you posted.
