Every Saturday since we entered the hospital, Pierce has had terrible days. The first Saturday, we had the potassium scare. The second, an infection. And now the third, and it appears Pierce is making a late-entry into the "sicker phase" that we were warned about. He had us all fooled! Please pray for us as this is very disheartening and so extremely difficult to watch, especially when we thought we had escaped this trial. The Drs. had weaned down P's pain medicine because he was doing so well and now it is becoming clear that he is in pain. As a mother, this is heartbreaking. Please pray that his nurse, Rachel and his nurse practitioner, Mandy can get him stabilized so that he can just rest and recover. Pray for his lungs, which were pretty bad according to a scan this morning. Also pray for Pierce's belly. Because he is so sick today, they stopped feeding him. There was/is also some concern about the discoloration of his belly. However, a scan this morning didn't reveal a problem (which is good!). Nonetheless, they want to play it safe and give his body time to recover from surgery. Needless to say it does appear that Pierce continues to write his book, I just wish today's chapter would've been a little better. But we trust that God is still at work and that He will see all three of us through this crisis. Please join us in praying for healing for Pierce.
Lindsay, Nik and Pierce
