Shannon has an infection

This is a collection of updates from Courtney from the last 12 hours.. please pray for miracles!

Update #1--

Shannon is on an oxygen funnel. She continues to run a fever between 100.5-102. They have taken blood samples for culture. They started a broad spectrum antibiotic at 9:30pm tonight through her line. Her heart rat continues to run high between 200-212 due to the fever. IV fluids may start at some pointe tonight.
The peace of the Lord surpasses all understanding. Thank you for praying.

Update #2--

IV fluids. Temp 102.2. Added a 3rd antibiotic by line. Pulse Ox and rate go up and down. Blood pressure still good.

Update #3--

Fever is down! Pulse good and oxygen goes up and down. On IV fluids which brought heart rate and temp down. She is having tummy problems. Gave Adivan. Really think the pulse machine is off. But keeping oxygen on her. They r keeping her on Tylenol. She is on another antibiotic through her line. So that's 3 antibiotics. They are hopeful that will catch whatever this is. They have a sepsis protocol that we went over so that if she develops a blood infection they move fast and will get a PICU attending doctor and nurse here quickly. Sepsis is a blood infection.

Last update 2 hours ago--

Her blood tests and surgical entry site test came back. Both are positive for a staff infection. They are hitting it hard with antibiotics. We can't move forward with chemo until staff decreases. Can't push Medicaid. So we were told hopefully between a week to 3 weeks they can start treatment. Please this infection leaves now and God's will for Shannon's healing supernaturally be evident.

Im praying this for Shannon...

Isaiah 58:8-

Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up speedily;
your righteousness shall go before you;
the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
