Drama in the House

Got a midnight call last nite...and you know that's not good news...
Yep, the baby is in the ER....she fell over a doll and rammed a lolly pop stick up her nose...
Oh Lord, how do they live to be grown?!?!

I asked my daughter what was happening...she says...we're waiting to be x-rayed before they pull it out...to make sure it hasn't punctured her sinuses....Jada is asleep.....
I ask, are you alone?, Who's with you?...she says...Everybody!....I say, who is everybody? She says...James(Jada's daddy), Jamar (Jada's uncle) Jiselle (Jada's aunty), Maimaw and Papaw and Gili (her best friend)....

I go back to sleep peacefully....there is an army of people standing by who love my daughter and my grandbaby. Thank you , Lord!
One hour later she calls back...they are keeping her overnight for observation and antibiotics (the stick was wooden and had been in her mouth) ....

This morning I spoke with Jada....she told me all about it very articulately and said she was a little bit scared but OK now. She will come to visit me next week and play on the swings and ride her bike with her Poppie...she's fine.....Thank you, Lord!

Kate's a bit on the frazzled side....ahh the joys of motherhood...and allniters in the hospital.....

***********************************

4:00pm UPDATE
Jada may not be responding to the antibiotic...her face is very swollen...they are trying a different antibiotic and keeping her again overnight....apparently this is a dangerous area for infection.....her young mommy and daddy are very stressed.....Please pray

Thank the Lord that she's OK and it wasn't more serious...Got to hate those midnight trips to the hospital...Prayers out to her.

Thanks for stopping by my site! I will pray for your precious little one and her mommy and daddy. How do they...grow up?

Ame said...

ditto bjk - i felt the same from your post :)

Dear God, I lift Jada up to You as she lay in the hospital tonight. Fill her physicians with supernatural wisdom, discernment, discretion and knowledge. You are The Great Physician, and I call on You to reach into the infection in Jada's little body and to touch her and to heal her. I pray that You would also wrap your comfort and strength around her parents ... and grandparents ... as they wait and watch and pray. You are holy and Sovereign, and we trust You. I love You, Ame
