We Had A Scare This Morning

Dear Ones, some of you know what happened this morning from my comment on Facebook asking for your prayers, but I wanted to share this with those of you who may not know.

My son in law called me this morning and informed me they were in the ER with our little granddaughter, Carter, who is 21 months old. She's had a runny nose, cough and fever for about a week. You know how little ones are, they get sick and get better and play, fever comes back...

Well, she had a bad night not sleeping, fever rising. This morning her fever popped up very high and she lost consciousness in my son in law's arms. They called 911 and the ambulance came to take her to the hospital. He said they were working with her and were getting her fever down but she was just lethargic. Needless to say our daughter was so upset and crying so hard. My heart just broke into pieces!

My husband and I felt so helpless. Many of you know they live in upper New York and my husband was searching for a flight. One of our precious ones offered to get us to New York! I just cried at the love. They had taken a chest xray, blood work and other things and all the results came back normal! Praise God! They said it was probably viral.

Her fever came down and our daughter said the doctors wanted to keep her over night in case her fever started rising again. I was so glad for that.

Well, technology as it is, made me very happy as we Skyped with her in her hospital room tonight. Bless her little heart! When she saw us she held up her bottle so we could see it. She talked a little bit to us but looked so worn out. They had put an IV in her little arm and taped her arm to a board and then had put a sock over it so she wouldn't mess with it! Her daddy had brought her some Veggie Tales toys and she was shaking them at us!

Just spoke with my daughter and she was holding little Carter and she was asleep now. My daughter and son in law are staying the night with Carter in her hospital room. Her fever had risen again but again they were able to get it down. I know they are just worn out.

I want to thank you all for your love, concern and prayers for my little granddaughter. I love her so much (I know all you grandmothers know how I feel).

So...I just haven't felt like visiting much today as I felt the wind was knocked out of me. But...I am so grateful to my God for His awesome power and answered prayer. Again, I thank you all so much for the prayers and I really do love you.

You are all my sweeties and God bless you,
Shelia ;)
