Avery and Ali
Ali is Avery's friend. Her mommy works for me and they get to see each other a few times a year. They are nearly the same age and they really hit it off. Ali has been complaining of a stomach ache for over a week and yesterday she had an ultrasound. They are going to do a CT scan, but they think she has kidney disease. Her mother, Jamila, is so upset and was crying at work today. We all hugged her and told her until they get definite word not to worry so much. Of course, that's easy to say and not to do. I told her that I would put it on the blog and that I had praying friends all over the world.
Update on Avery: She's here at our house on the couch and she ate for the first time in two days. She had some chicken and a biscuit. Her face is still red and she seems to have a temp, but a least she is keeping food on her stomach. Thanks so much for your prayers. No cheerleading tomorrow. We will relax on the couch and read and watch tv. Thank you guys, you are wonderful!
