Asher Post

****update****Asher doing better. He had develope acute chest syndrome which is a complication of Sickle Cell disease. His lung funtion was not what it should be last night, so they put him back on his biPaP machine for the night. We will see what they say today about him going home. He's had a blood transfusion and multiple pain meds, but because he's doing well with no pain, they are cutting back the pain meds some. He was actually looking really good last night and even a little naughty. Praising God! He should be going home today or tomorrow.


This is the only way to update as facebook is being poopoo. Asher isn't doing well, He was actually looking better to me this morning and as the day progressed he got sicker. Looks like we will be spending the next couple nights in Dupont Children's Hosp....hmmmmm, maybe we could think of it as a resort :) He's getting a variety of meds including morphine for pain and antibiotics for any possible infection. Pray the fever breaks and the pain goes away. He is so miserable. Mommy is tired too. Evan is graduating preschool on wed and it looks like I will miss it. I know it's only preschool but it's breaking my heart. Daddy will be there though.

I still believe that God is working a mighty blessing...He works All Things together for good for those who love him...not SOME things, ALL things!

Lord, I ask that You heal Asher. Give the doctors wisdom as they try to figure out the best way to help him. Ease the pain and break the fever. I ask that You would bring him back to health so everyone can go to Evan's preschool graduation. Amen.
