What's on Tap for Wednesday?

Not much to update you with tonight. When I visited Sarah this evening, she was a little fussy - who wouldn't be? - with all the tubes and IVs back into her again. They are going to hook up a central line, as they call it, into her groin area. This will help with getting things in and out quickly. Of course, this increases the chance of infection so we will need to pray against that.

The GI scan should reveal exactly what the issue is whether an ulcer, a ruptured artery/vein or something else. The docs will need the central line in and Sarah stabilized before they attempt the GI scan. Praying for a restful night for both Sarah and Patty.

So we are back to the waiting game again. My mind conjures up a lot of things that can cause a small child (or adult for that matter) to cough up blood and none of them are good! Our nurse told us tonight that the amount of blood in a baby's body would only fill a soda can. Patty suspects Sarah lost at least half of that at our house. She looked good when I saw her and even was doing some jabbering and laughing before I left.

God please bring answers and your healing touch to Sarah tomorrow.
