Words you never want to hear your doctor say...

November 1, 2012 (Day +8)
Lorelei's heart rate is up and her blood pressure is 94 over 45. Still running a fever but not as high as yesterday. Doctor said "gram negative bacteria sepsis can be fatal within hours if not treated." I'm so glad they began treating Lorelei early yesterday. They may switch to a new antibiotic today but there is a concern about its potential to do organ damage, so waiting on final blood culture and sensitivities. They may order a CT Scan to look for an abscess if her fever spikes high again today. Please continue to pray for wisdom for the doctors and peace for Lorelei.

Psalm 91:14-16

New International Version (NIV)

14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation."
