Prayers for Hope

Hope had a rough night last night. Her blood pressure is down so she has been started on Dopamine to raise her blood pressure. They think she has an infection but they are unable to find the source of it yet. Her urine output is not what it should be. X-rays and blood cultures have been done. X-rays of her "gut" (a KUB) and chest showed that everything was normal, but we have to play the waiting game with the blood cultures.

The doctors are encouraged because they say she doesn't "look" sick and has been more active than yesterday. Please pray that they are able to pinpoint what is making our little Hope sick and help her feel better soon so she can keep growing and getting strong.

  1. Hi Andrew, Sarah,and Hope,
    We are praying for you and thinking of you often. Pray that today is only a minor set back for Hope, that the doctors figure out the problem, and find a solution soon.
    It has been so much fun watching her grow. We know the pictures don't do her justice, but we so like seeing her daily. We actually see a little pudge on her!!! She is truly on her way to the 'biggest fatty'.
    Just know that we think of you and pray for you often, and that we plan on holding her when we come to Michigan in June.
    Love, Uncle Tom and Aunt Sue
