First off, we’ve got GREAT news!
The nature of anemia in an infant is that Olivet had crash level blood stats when she was taken to the hospital here in San Antonio but you wouldn’t have known it to look at her ( because all babies are sleepy for the most part). As you can imagine this is scary for a parent to think about and we pray the Lord’s continued protection over her. So far every step of the way, even in the smallest of “accidents” she has gotten the care that she’s needed when she needed it. ( For instance, a faulty blood test in Nacogdoches meant that Anna was able to get an “emergency” doctors appointment with my doctor in San Antonio as soon as she arrived rather then the next day…and my doctor sent her immediately to the emergency room).
Also, its pretty imperative for Olivet to have a super great pediatrician when they return to Nacogdoches however their insurance is not currently accepted with the pediatrician she has been seeing ( and who Anna has taken all her girls to see for the past 5 years) and they’re suppose to change to some unknown doctor this next month ( literally the ONLY doctor in town who takes their insurance. Not really the reasons you want to go by when picking a doctor) Could we pray for a miracle that somehow they would be able to keep their current pediatrician?
And of course, as I mentioned in my last post pray that all their physical and practical needs would be met as they deal with the financial fallout of this last month- I’m just the sister so I don’t know details, but I do know hospitals so- I bet it isn’t pretty.
And last, but definitely not least, I am praying for complete healing for Olivet. That come two weeks ( much less 2 months) when they do blood tests they’ll find no anemia at all.
I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Lord can do great and wonderful things and I believe that He can and will ( and maybe has already started!) to heal little Olivet’s body. In fact, I got something really cool in my quiet time today that encouraged me about this very thing. I’ll post it tomorrow!
But I’ll leave you with this last thought…this time tomorrow Olivet could actually be out of the hospital! Wouldn’t that be wonderful?! Let’s pray that happens together!
