Please More Prayer

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!

There are no limits on how often we pray. God loves to hear from us. :o) We'll be pleased to add the other girl to the list too. Poor thing. I do hope she'll be OK. Everybody get well soon! ((Hugs)) for you and Avery ~ ♥ ∞

Hi Trish!

My prayers are with the girls and the rest of you! I'm so sorry to hear Avery has been ill, no fun! And her friend, oh dear how scary.
I will be praying that good health will be restored to each of them through the healing power of Jesus!

Big hugs, Sherry

Praying that Ali has only got a tummy bug or something that will be easily got rid of.
They make a lovely photo these two friends. Glad Avery is over the worst now.

Trish, so happy to hear your little Avery is getting well. Much love, Brenna

Debby said...

I'll be praying for Ali AND her mother. I can't think of anything worse for a mom than a seriously ill child.

steviewren said...

I second what Debby says. It must be very hard to contemplate your child having a serious illness.

Glad that Avery is on the mend. You two take it easy today!

I'll be praying, Trish. Glad to hear Avery is better! That's such a beautiful picture of her at the top of your blog of the two girls. I hope all turns out well for Ali Ali!

Lavinia said...

I hope my prayer for Avery helped...I'm pleased to hear she kept food down. I hope the diagnosis for Ali is wrong and her kidneys are just fine. She's as cute as a button and I'm sad that she's in stomach pain. I'll add her name to my prayers. I really do believe that God hears us.

Maree said...

I will lift this precious child up to the Lord in prayer!

Sorry to hear Miss Avery has been so sick! Praying for her too!

Barbara said...

Glad she is feeling better. My Grandson was sent home from nursery very sick and within hours his Mum went down with it. Always an anxious time.

From the Heart said...

Hi, I'm a blogging friend of Sharon at Techno-nana. I see you have two prayer requests. Sharon mentioned your ex-husband had a heart attack and had asked for prayer. Just wanted to let you know that I will add him, and your family to my prayer list as well as the little girl.
