Prayer request for my little girl

My dearest readers, might I ask for your coveted prayers and thoughts of healing for my little girl? She woke up this morning with severe facial swelling and a rash. When I couldn't get the swelling and rash to fully subside with benadryl I took her in to the pediatrician. We left with a prescription of steroids (penicillin) and strict orders to take her to the ER if the swelling gets worse or her breathing becomes labored. Her pedi is concerned that the swelling could spread to her lungs or throat. Blood tests showed that her kidneys are functioning fine which is good news so we may never know what is causing her severe allergic reaction. I will of course be checking on her breathing all night, my motherly instincts will not let me rest tonight. Your prayers for her healing are deeply appreciated!

  6. Thank you everyone for your highly coveted prayers, they mean so much to me. I am happy to update that she is feeling much better. She hasn't had any further reaction. It hasn't been confirmed but my motherly instinct tells me her reaction was due to new facial lotion I put on her face the night before. Although it was the second time, I know sometimes those types of allergic reactions do not appear on the first application. We are just so blessed the swelling stayed in her face and didn't spread to her breathing passages. Thanks again for your prayers!
