Our sweet little Elyssa.


Would you please pray for her.  She has an abscessed tooth.  It seems as if the cap fell out--in which a small stone became lodged in the hole {thanks to the local rice}.  I managed to get out the stone, but quickly realized it was acting as a cork.  The gums surrounding the tooth are completely swollen and oozing with pus.  I started the little sweetie on antibiotics, but the infection will need to clear before the tooth can be pulled.  This will be her fourth tooth to be pulled out--due to neglect prior to becoming part of our family and her sickle cell disease {which softens her teeth, making them prone to cavities/infection}.

{Eryn and Elyssa}

We have seen the Lord do such an amazing work in this little girls life.  This mama is proud to be her nurse.

I thank God that He has given her to your family. To Him be all the glory. And I pray that He would continue to give you the wisdom and strength to parent/nurse/teach all of your young ones!

Praying for your sweet little Elyssa, that the infection will all come out so that the tooth may be pulled out and also for wisdom for all of you that some kind of healthy remedy can be used to help her get well and better from sickle cell.

Also praying that He will bless you in that you are able to sell your vehicle to pay off the one that you have now. Praise His name :)

I will be praying for her! Our Alia had to have 6 teeth pulled because of neglect before she came home.
May the LORD fill you with His Spirt, friend, as you care for your family!!!

Blessings and prayers for your sweet girl. Being in the dental field, this has my heart. Praying the antibiotic works quickly. Prayers for healing in every area of her life, In the name of Jesus I pray.

I read this yesterday (Tue the 12th). And have been praying for Elyssa ever since. How is she doing? Praying the Lord continues to give you wisdom in how to treat this tooth infection. Blessing to you-
