Please Pray for Ava

Earlier this evening, Matt took Ava to the ER after she had what we believe to be her first seizure. While in the ER getting worked up she had another seizure, so it's a blessing she's there and will be admitted so she can be properly watched and treated.

Please pray for:
*Sweet Ava. She hasn't been able to eat since 4:30 this afternoon and she's bound to be pretty grouchy! This is her first round of "stuff" since being discharged and I'm sure it's overwhelming her little system.
*Matt who is with her and will need all his tricks to comfort her overnight.
*Elizabeth, Ruby and Hannah Mae, who once again need grace for change, the absence of a parent and the stress that introduces into our already wonky life. Ruby is the most sensitive and intuitive and could definitely use extra prayers for peace and rest.
*Guidance and wisdom for the doctors who are treating Ava...we are trusting the Lord will guide them to the cause of the seizures.

I will post updates as I'm able. If you want to get these updates by email, enter your email address in the box in the upper right corner to be added to the blog distribution list. (it's private and unpublished)

As I told a friend yesterday...and I still believe today:

God IS behind and before us. He is never surprised. He IS the provision we need and has already making the way for us to walk through this.

Thank you for praying,

Matt and Sara, we attend the Journey TG campus and live fairly close to Children's. I am a SAHM of 6 kids and am here if you ever need to drop someone off or need a place to crash for a few hours in between hospital visits. Let us know how we can help. (I'm not going to include my email on this comment but if you leave a comment on my blog it will not be published with an email address, so you can get in touch with me that way. :))
