It’s now 10am EST on Avery’s one-month birthday. Also my wonderful niece, Nicole’s, 8th birthday. Happy Birthday beautiful Nicole. You are such a joy and shining light in the world and we are so proud of the thoughtful, kind, warm, and magnificent girl that you are.
We had a tremendous scare last night at the hospital that brought both Quin and I to our knees and left us speechless and beyond fearful throughout the night. Our nurse told us that they started Avery on a new medicine and that they are very closely watching her blood gases because she may be putting out too much urine….a sign of kidney trouble. They are continuing to monitor her very closely and every blood gas they do should provide them with more information. We can hardly breathe.
We know that all of you are praying for her throughout the day and we are truly grateful. We are now asking for special prayers for Avery’s healing and strength at 10am and 10pm EST every day so that we all will be praying simultaneously around the world at least twice a day. Please pass this message on to everyone you can and ask that they kindly send her love, strength, and positive energy at those times each day (and as many other times as possible).
We love and appreciate you all.
