Prayer request for my sister

Many may know, but some may not - Casey is 8 weeks pregnant. She, however is incredibly sick from morning sickness that has been persistant for almost 3 weeks. Mom went to Nashville yesterday and went to the dr with her this morning, and they are admitting Casey into the hospital - from dehydration I assume. Mom said she would call me when she gets settled and knows more.

Sophia had a dr's appt this am with an ear infection, and Seth is recovering from bronchitis. They all need your prayers right now.

I will update as I hear news.

* As of 5:30pm, she is going to spend tonight at the hospital and see how things go. She will be allowed to go home only when she can eat and hold food down, for fear she might end up back at the hospital. Her doctor has talked of a pump, similar to a diabetic, where anti-nausea meds can be administered as needed by injection. She has lost 10 pounds in 1 month. The nurses were finally able to get an IV placed in the crook of her arm - the only site where they could put one. I will update more tomorrow!

I will keep her in my prayers. You two have had to work really hard to get your babies here. I hope the rest of her pregnancy will go smoothly.

Will be praying for her. I know exactly how miserable that is. Did it for 9 months and was hospitalized twice...remember those days? Ugh. Poor dear!
