Our tiny little Elyssa Mercy is REALLY sick.

Ladies, PLEASE keep praying for Elyssa. We found out that she is in a hemolytic crisis due to what doctors believe is blackwater fever, a rare complication of malaria. She has been urinating blood for two days and has literally been sleeping for over 50 hours--only waking up when I take her potty or force her to drink water. She has eaten only two small bananas this entire time (remember, she is four years old and just 28 pounds). Oh, my dear Jehovah Rapha, please do not take our precious little girl yet.

P.S. I just called the clinic and they said that if she is not a wee bit better by tomorrow she will need to come in for a blood transfusion.

Oh precious friend--I am just catching up before I leave for Africa this afternoon.

KNOW that I will be praying for your sweet, sweet little one. Calling on the HEALER to touch her body and breath LIFE into her. I can only imagine how heavy your heart must be. Know that you are covered in prayer at this time.

PRAYING with all my heart.

Oh Summer - we are praying, God hears, He knows and loves Elyssa more than even you do. We are praying for God to wrap His arms around you and Zane and to touch little Elyssa!
