March 16, 2008, Danni to the ER

We came to the ER at Parkview Main at 11 am. It is 7:30 pm and we just saw the doctor as he was in surgery all day. We came because she had spinal fluid leaking from the top of her head. Danni was admitted and the doctor says she cannot go home until the leaking stops. The fear is infection.

Also, there is another issue. Danni's platelets (used to clot blood) are low. The count should be between 100 and 440 hers were 88 on Monday and today's test shows they are now 55. Please pray specifically for the blood count to go up and that the leaking stops. Pray also against infection. Danni is also having some minor side effects from the medication she's taking. You can pray for those too. Thank you all for your faithful prayers.

Dear Christy
I've been printing off your prayer requests and putting them into our prayer journal. I also printed one of Danni's pictures so that my kids (ages 13,6,5 and 4) can see Danni (JJ's niece, as they know her) as they pray. I am so sorry that it's a tough day. We will pray that you all will experience the Lord's peace, His presence, and an abundance of His healing power!!
Much love from Michigan,
Cindy (Stille) Bultema and family
JJ's childhood friend :)

Christy, Oh how I understand what you are going threw. The same thing happened to my father in law before they went in to put a shunt in his head to help with the leaking. I have your daughter in my prayers.

Know God is right beside you and your daughter.
God Bless,
Lori Bieber
