Shannon very swollen : (

Latest updates from last night and today!

Update: I spoke with the attending surgeon last night and she explained that a surgery for Shannon without 48 hours of clear cultures is too big a risk. Dr. Chung said best case scenario is a new line on Friday. So more IV's and blood draws each day until then. Her little hands are so swollen from leaky IV's. She is still fluid positive and we turned her oxygen up last night, but it's still a small amount of oxygen so that is a praise report.
Please pray for the Lord to release Shannon from this burden but that if His plan is for her to walk through this that He would cover her from any more pain and smooth everything out. He doesn't promise a life without suffering, but He does promise to be her deliverer, her comfort, her covering, and her provider and her peace. We are desperate.

both of Shannon's hands and arms are completely blow and swollen from the IVs. She has to have another IV inserted by 12 today. Please pray over.

Isaiah 54:10

For the mountains may depart
and the hills be removed,
but my steadfast love shall not depart from you,
and umy covenant of peace shall not be removed,”
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
