Please Pray for Addison
Update - 3/22 - 11 pm Eastern time: I just talked to Sarah's little sister, who is at the hospital with her. Addison's temp is down somewhat, with medication. Her oxygen is better, on oxygen. She's nursing again, she's been awake more than asleep today so she's exhausted. They're checking her vitals so often, that every time Sarah gets her rocked to sleep they come in and wake her up again, so it's going to be a long night, with likely little sleep for Addison or her mommy. Chris is home with the boys. So please pray for Addison and Sarah to be able to get some sleep, for things to be well on the home-front, and for Addison's temp, fluids, and oxygen levels to improve over the next 24 hours. Sarah's Dad and I are grateful for family who is near (when we're so far away), for friends who are their extended family. And for each of you, for the covering of prayer literally across this nation, and even other countries. I've personally been comforted, just to stop and think throughout this day, how many times God heard Miss Addison's name whispered today. If you wake up tonight, can't get back to sleep, feel free to pray just a bit more. xoxo

UPDATE: Honest to pete, I held it together all day long, came home and saw 46 comments from all of you out there, and melted. I knew, before I opened any of them, that every one would say you were praying for her. If we don't meet this side of heaven, I want you to each know how much you mean, and we're so thankful for you. Thanks for being there. Here's Sarah's update. I've been on my cell phone the whole livelong day. The last time I talked to her, Addison was doing worse, so to click on this update and see that she sounds better - well I'm a puddle of mess. I'm assuming Sarah has Chris' laptop with her and will keep you updated. I'll do the same if I hear something, and don't see it posted. You guys are awesome! xoxoxoxoxo

Sarah phoned me from the back of an ambulance, asking me to post this on my blog because she's away from home. Addison was diagnosed with RSV a few days ago, has been on breathing treatments, and seemed to be doing better.

Apparently last night she started having more difficulties. When Sarah took Addison to the doctor this morning, he sent her straight to the hospital. She was receiving a breathing treatment on the way. Sarah suspects pneumonia, but I've yet to hear anything more since Sarah saw the doctor.

She just asked me to let you all know - Addison needs prayer again. If you have a minute and can put this on your blog, this Grammy would feel better knowing Heaven is being flooded with requests on her behalf. I'm sure Sarah and Chris would too.

Soon as I get an update, I'll come back and let you all know. Love and hugs to all of you for spreading the word. xoxoxo
