I have let Laurie know of all your kind words. The baby does not have RSV but a serious infection in her throat. They did 4 spinal taps before they were able to draw what they needed yesterday. Early reports tell us its not in her central nervous system and its not meningitus. We are PTL for those answers.
We hope to hear more good news soon. Laurie is holding up as to be expected. She misses her two older girls and is sick with worry. That on top of her milk coming in full force and just delivering a 9lb baby definetly has her in a world wind of emotions. She does have a lot of family support and we know our God is gracious and merciful. It means a lot to her to know your praying.

I know how hard all that pumping is, and having a sick baby in the NICU. Just remind her how much all that milk is going to help her baby fight this off. I hope she has lots of family and friends to bring her lots of food and remind her to sleep (and take care of the older kids, that must be so hard!!)
We are thinking of her and her family and waiting for updates.

Oh my heart is just aching for poor Krisalyn and four spinal taps. My first memory is of a spinal tap when I was 2. Please let her know that we're praying for her and her whole family at our church too.
Thanks for the update. One of my soon to be 8 week old twins was in the hospital for a week with an infection just a little while ago. He also had to suffer 4 taps before they finally got the fluid out.
Let her know we are all praying for her and her family and for a speedy recovery.
