    Prayer Update — Baby Collette

    From Fr. Carl and Debby Smith:

    Colette update: Justin Dodson and Jenna Dodson called just now. Lots going on now and forgive me for all the medical details, but I know many will want to be aware. Colette is now in the ICU, they can only visit 10 min/hr and do not let them stay overnight. Major issues are the kidneys, her Creatinine is 6.15 so they are continuing IV fluid boluses with Lasix – no urine yet. Her hemogoblin is low and she is receiving a blood transfusion. Other electrolytes /labs are off too- Bicarb was low so they are replacing that, her Potassium is better. They are doing tube feedings via NG and continuing the Quinine and antibiotic. Tomorrow they will test her eye pressure, do a head scan and spinal tap. Praises from the day : Vital signs are all good, no fever, IV access in one try, Colette cried when she heard Jenna’s voice which she has not been doing, they are in a hotel tonight, but will have mission housing, today 2 missionaries and 5 Ivorian pastors visited,prayed and stayed with Justin before Jenna arrived. Jenna thought Colette looked better when she arrived today. Both are very pleased with those caring for Colette. There is still alot to be determined, but we are so thankful for the positives and for all of your prayers. Keep praying friends and family !

    Prayer Request

    From Fr. Carl and Debby Smith:

    Please pay for missionaries we know in the Ivory Coast. Their two year old daughter has cerebral malaria and her kidneys are shutting down…They were able to get little Colette to another hospital in Abidjan in an airplane. Her father went with her and her mother had to drive the nine hour drive with their four year old daughter. They are sedating her and trying to hydrate her and flush her kidneys. Thank you for continuing to pray for the Dodson family. Colette is 22 months old. Thank you.

    O Lord Jesus Christ, Good Shepherd of the sheep, who  gathers the lambs in your arms, and carries them in your heart: We commit into your loving hands this child. Relieve her pain, guard her from all danger, restore to her your gifts of gladness and strength, and raise her up to a life of service to you. Hear us, we pray, for your dear Name’s sake. And we further pray for her family, that they will be comforted and encouraged by the knowledge of your presence in the midst of this turmoil, and that you will give supernatural wisdom  to those who care for your child.  All this we offer to you, in the strong and powerful name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen
