Bridgette, NE

February 2, 2015
My mom has a dangerous internal infection, in liver and who knows where else, thus the constant fevers, pain, etc. She also has bacteria in her blood. So 48 hours to get back the labs on biopsy to help answer some of the questions, but she is getting serious doses of antibiotics and they are watching her heart to be sure the infection doesn’t get there. If she doesn’t get worse she won’t go to ICU but if she does, she will. She needs many prayers for diagnosis and healing. She has a liver doctor, infectious disease doctor, and a hospitalist at Avera who we are confident in, but we know she needs God’s intervention to work miracles through their hands.
