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!
