Please Pray for our Boy
I am sending out an urgent request for everyone who still checks this blog to PLEASE PRAY FOR HENRY! He was admitted to the hospital 9 days ago for symptoms of dehydration due to vomiting. Fever and a rash persisted and worsened over the course of a week. By day six, Henry was fighting for his life. He is in the PICU and continues to fight. There is a raging infection in his lungs and his blood, in addition to a staph infection in his trachea. Henry is only 9 months old. He is the joy of our lives. His brothers adore him. We are devastated at the thought of losing our precious boy. PLEASE PRAY! Last night, Henry showed some small improvements. We are clinging to hope that this might mean that he is on the road to recovery, but the doctors are being very cautious and have reminded us often that he is not out of the woods.
I will try to update here if people seem to be reading the blog.
