Please pray

Looks like we are headed back to the Operating room.  Our sweet girl has a pneumoperitoneum.  According to the internet and our doctors this means that there air or gas in the abdominal (peritoneal) cavity.

The cause is unknown.  Her body is reacting with fever and elevated white blood count.  Her platelets count is also decreasing.

First they are going to drain her stomach.  It is seriously distended.  They are going to place a tube through her nose and suction everything out.  Then they are talking about taking her back to the OR and take a look.  Please pray for our sweet girl.  Her doctor said, She never catches a break, does she?

"Grant us faith to look beyond the problems of the moment to the miracles of the future."

This sentence,from a quote by President Gordon B. Hinkley, made me think of Arabella,(and her sweet parents).

Still Praying!
