"We really need prayer right now- Zoey is really struggling. She is in so much pain. She is having a hard time keeping an IV in and she doesn't understand what they are doing to her. She thinks they are torturing her. I just hate to see her suffering.... They finally decided to sedate her and got the IV in that way. They should have done that from the beginning. The last two and a half hours have been incredibly difficult, both for Zoey and us. Having to watch her go through this, holding her down, listening to her scream from mommy to help her is taking it's emotional toll. I need some prayer too. They will be putting in the PICC today so at least we know that things will be a bit easier on poor little Zoey, and the prayer is that hopefully there will not have to be anymore clean out surgeries after today and we can move on to reconstruction and healing".
A few things to be in prayer for today: Zoey will be having another surgery today to check again for infected tissue, and she will have surgery every day until no infection is found. As of last night there is no sign of infection in the bone, but this bacteria is still not controlled. We are believing that they will not find any more infection and they can start to close up all the incisions. She has not been able to eat on her own and she needs to or they will have to put in a feeding tube. Today they will also be putting in the PICC line, so pray that goes smoothly and successfully on the first try. This is going to be a very long road for Zoey, Bryan and Valorie. Please continue to pray for them, and for the team of doctors and nurses at Children's. Pray for Valorie...this is very difficult to watch her baby go through so much. Whenever you think of their family today, pray for peace.
