As you know, I don’t generally like to talk about personal stuff on my blog too much (and I have done it a bit too much lately), but I think I should mention this. For those of you who read this blog and are praying folk, I’d appreciate it if you could spare a mention of my youngest daughter in your prayers. We ended up taking her to the Emergency Room today because she was having some trouble breathing.
It’s pretty frightening to hold your daughter in your arms and hope that she will stop gasping and be able to inhale normally. Long story short, they think she might have pneumonia. Frankly, I’m rather hoping she does because that would be a bit easier than the uncertainty. Having a known problem and plan for a solution is easier to deal with than not knowing what is wrong nor what can be done to resolve it.
The situation was not so severe and pressing, however, that they couldn’t allow her to go home from the ER, so no one thinks there is much risk of her just stopping breathing entirely all of a sudden.
