prayer request (updated)

I put up a prayer request yesterday for our sweet little friend, Layne...When I went to update it last night, I accidentally deleted it and thought "well, no one really reads my blog anyway"... I thought wrong! 2 emails this morning asking about little Layne!!

So, here's the update:

2 night ago, Layne started vomiting uncontrollably, vomiting blood, and then couldn't breathe and went limp in her Momma's arms. (you have chills, don't you? As a Mom, I can't imagine what Megan must have felt) 911 arrived and transported Layne to the nearest hospital. After many tests, they decided that she needed to be transferred to another hospital for emergency surgery for intestinal blockage. Once at the new hospital, they decided to wait on surgery and run some other tests.

Clover and I got to go visit little Layne-fish yesterday, and she was in much better spirits - color on her cheeks, giggling with Clover, requesting food, etc.

Instead of trying to put it in my own words, this was Megan's fb status last night when Layne got to go home:

"Layne has been released and we are home watching her. Right now we are still awaiting test results back for a possible egg and/or dairy allergy. They are also fairly certain she has Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. But, it will take time to determine the severity. She also continues to have trouble with severe constipation, so we are watching to be sure the nociception they saw on the x-ray does not return. It's a very frustrating set of circumstances because we can't 'fix' her and just have to wait and define patterns.

I am feeling a bit down knowing that the GI issues I've battled have obviously not skipped a generation. Never wanted my kids to go through this crap :(

THANK YOU EVERYONE for all your thoughts, well wishes, prayers, vibes and messages. We felt the love. And, Layne is feeling quite a bit better."

Please continue to pray for this amazing family and beautiful little girl!

"Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything
that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or
more are gathered together in My Name, I am there in the midst of them." -- Matthew 18: 19-20
