We created this blog to help us document the story of Malia starting at 29 weeks in utero. There have been and continue to be struggles for Malia and for us. It is evident to us, as you will see, that the power of prayer is mighty and God does love us and hear our prayers. We welcome and invite you to follow along with us. Though lengthy, start from the bottom to get the entire story so far.

Go away Fever!!!

After a trip to the pediatrician's office today and then a trip to the hospital to get a blood work-up, we were able to find out that Malia's white blood cell count was really high (she was at 27 normal is 10), causing her to still have a fever and some vomiting. These levels indicate that her white blood cells are fighting some sort of infection and she needs to be on a strong dose of antibiotics for the next 2 days. Please pray that this is all it is and that the antibiotics kick in sooner than later. It's so sad to see her so sick. We haven't seen her smile in 3 days. They also took a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia and did a urine analysis to rule out an UTI. Those test came back negative. It's been a very long 3 days!
