Leaving for Johns Hopkins

We are leaving in about 2 hours for Johns Hopkins. Dr. Dorafshar wants to see Katya first thing tomorrow am to assess her swelling himself. The Drs at Children's did not know what is wrong, nothing makes sense . . . so after a lot of consultation with Dr. D. (God bless him--he again lost sleep last night for Katya!) it was determined that Katya was stable enough for us to take her to JHH ourselves rather than air medical transport.

She is positive for flu, and very miserable with that. Her Mommy still has the flu bug too. I've had worse flu, but not being able to rest properly has made this one linger and smack me way hard. Please pray for us as we are having to travel while ill. I'm not looking forward to it for myself, and I totally 100% pity my poor little gal. But I agree--it's time for her surgeons to see her and assess whatever is going on themselves. As everyone kept saying last night, "Flu explains a lot, but it doesn't explain every thing." And it's the "every thing" that is concerning the Drs.

Specific Prayer Requests:

For Katya--for healing and peace of heart

For health for us

Childcare arrangements on such short notice

Wisdom for Katya's Drs and the other medical staff at JHH who will be following her

The "earthly" provisions to all be worked out--lodging etc.

For our other kids who are once again having their plans and lives thrown into an upheaval
