Kara is sick
Please pray for Kara, she has pnuemonia. She has been sick since Wednesday with a high fever. Bob took her to the Doc. yesterday, and they thought she just had a virus with a high fever. Gave her a shot and sent her home. Bob took her back to the Doc this morning for followup, well that's when they found the pnuemonia. Gave her another shot of the high test antibiotics, and a perscription for some as well. They sent her home again, but if she is not better by Sunday they will put her in the hospital. So pray she gets well. She was to have surgery on Monday to repair some more of her palate, but we had to cancel that.
The term walking pneumonia is often used to describe pneumonia that isn't severe enough to require bed rest or hospitalization. If you've been told that you have walking pneumonia, it's probably caused by tiny organisms called Mycoplasma. Signs and symptoms of Mycoplasma pneumonia are milder and appear more gradually than those of other kinds of pneumonia. When needed, treatment may include antibiotics. Viral pneumonia also can be very mild at times. byMayo Clinic pulmonologist Edward Rosenow, M.D.,

But most of all thanks for the prayers.
