prayers for Garty
We would really appreciate it if you could pray for Garty tonight. He's had an unexplainable fever all afternoon, and that's one of the big warning signs with his kidney disease. The doctor always reminds us to call if he gets a fever without any other symptoms of illness. On top of that, he's been having lots of wetting accidents, which isn't normal for him. I don't know if the accidents have any significance, but the timing is making us nervous. Please pray that his fever would disappear in the next hour or two, and pray for wisdom for us. If it doesn't break before bedtime, we need to decide whether to call his nephrologist. We really don't want to land in the ER overnight while the doctor's office is closed, but we also don't want to wait too long on something that could be serious. In an effort to avoid overreacting to situations, we tend to err on the side of not enough caution most of the time. Tonight we need to make the right decision for our baby. We'll let you know the results of your prayers as soon as we know anything at all.
