Dear Family and Friends,
Just got off the phone with Elaine. Kara is in the hospital (CPMC). She has a ruptured appendix. She is on a morphine drip, different IV's and an antibiotic to HOPEFULLY control the infection.
Your prayers of intercession are needed: that the antibiotic does its job to control the infection NOW, so that Kara doesn't need surgery tomorrow morning.
Kara personally has requested that your prayers ask for her to "heal quickly".
Kara is feeling tired - and no wonder. She's had a CT scan, had to drink a quart of that yucky stuff, and she's been tolerating pain "that would bring a 40-year old man to his knees", says her doctor. "I would have been in here four days ago, if I was having that kind of pain". Our Kara is strong!
She's in the pediatric ward, and the staff is really friendly. They answer all of Kara's questions. Thanks, God, for a caring staff.
So please imagine the antibiotic working through her body to the area of infection and controlling it.
Prayers for good rest, strength, and healing. Prayers of assurance for Elaine, Karl and Sabine as well.
Thanks for your prayers!
