Infection and ICU

We had one of the most scariest days yesterday since Natalie's treatment. Natalie got a strep infection and had to be moved to the Intensive Care Unit Sunday night because her blood pressure was low all day. They said her body was in shock because of the overwhelming infection and her low counts. They removed her broviac line last night after not being able to get her blood pressure to go up in ICU. They suspect that might be the source of infection and wanted it out immediately. They also inserted a pick line in her for medicine. It was a hard night for us until all the procedures were done. Natalie was so brave through it all though. The night was good for her as her blood pressure seemed stabilized. Of course, she had so many people praying for her that night as well. She was doing so well that they thought she might be able to get out of ICU.

However, this morning, her blood pressure dropped again and they haven't been able to stablize it all day. We are concerned and need as many prayers as we can to get Natalie and us through this. Please pray for us and for Natalie to recover by tomorrow morning so she can go back to 7Long.

Hebrews 5:7
During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.

These are the kind of prayers we're praying for you, Natalie!! We love you so much and we're counting on God to continue to show us miracles through you. You are so strong!! Keep fighting, sweetheart!!
