This photo was taken yesterday, a little after noon when Pearl came home! The older kids were ecstatic to have her back home, and its good to all be under one roof again. We have a follow up appointment on Friday, but it looks like the pneumonia is clearing up, and her seizure medications have been fine tuned yet again to keep those under control. Thank you all for praying this past week, and thank you for continuing to walk with our family after all this time. We never know what we’re looking at during times like these, and we’re grateful that you all shoulder the weight with us.
Good evening, friends.
On behalf of the Browns, I would like to ask you to pray for our sweet Pearl. After a rough few days, Pearl was admitted to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital on Wednesday with pneumonia. Early Thursday morning she was transferred to the PICU.
Pearl’s condition has improved somewhat over the course of the day but, as of tonight, she is still on partial oxygen and undergoing some tests. Eric reported that the doctors who know Pearl believe that she will come through this, while others are not sure what to expect. As Eric tweeted this evening, “Neither of them numbered Pearls days nor do they hold her in the palm of their hand. They are all doing well by her, though. We’re thankful.”
Please lift sweet Pearl to God in prayer. He has been so gracious to her and to all of us through her. Tonight we pray that He will heal Pearl’s body, that she may continue to thrive and God’s glory would shine even brighter through her.
Please also pray for the Brown family, that the Giver of Life would sustain them and give them all they need for each day, and for the doctors and medical staff as they care for this precious child who is so beloved. Though the Browns are not able to respond to each of your encouraging words, they are grateful for your messages, comments and especially your prayers.
And now, in keeping with the joy this little one always brings, I leave you with a photo of quite possibly the cutest mouth God ever gave a child.
Ladies and gentlemen, Sleeping Pearl:
As Eric says, you’re welcome.
