Jared called this afternoon and said they have had to return to the ER today, because Mary Caroline has an infection in her cut that she got a week ago. They went Sunday morning to the ER because her eye was swollen shut and they were suspicious of an infection. They removed the stitches and drained the wound, cleaned etc. They gave serious antibiotics and instructions to clean the wound 2 times a day. They sent Jared and MC home.
But today she is running a fever and the ER people feel she may need intravenous antibiotics. They may be keeping her tonight. So that is what I know. I know for many of you, this family has been the object of many prayers the last 3/4ths of the year. These parents are very experienced at ER room visits.
Jared and Sara have a trip planned here on 1/21 to 1/24. Now we are starting to wonder if they will be able to come for his visit. We are so looking forward to this! Have your way, Lord Jesus!
Well...please pray for our little granddaughter, once again and her precious family. It is discouraging to keep going thru these manifold trials. Although James tells us to count it all joy when we fall into various temptations. Peter says that the trying of our faith is more precious than gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen we love. He is with us, He will take us through, and He will not fail us nor forsake us! Praise Him forever.
Thank you for sweet prayers, they are effectual and avail much!
