Please pray for McKenna

Our precious girl is in the hospital tonight. She was admitted this afternoon, after going to the pediatrician's office with a temperature of 100.2. Her temperature continued to climb this afternoon and she has not been eating well. At the moment, her temperature is back down again at 100.6, but any fever over 99 degrees is dangerous for a newborn. They are concerned about keeping her hydrated since she isn't feeding well, but at this point, they have not given her IV fluids. This evening, after a blood test, she was diagnosed with influenza A, otherwise known as a nasty strain of the flu. Judy, Ryan and Christian all have the flu, and we were hoping that our precious baby girl would escape. Judy is also struggling with bronchitis and a sinus infection. She is staying at the hospital with McKenna tonight. Please pray for the Chatterton family! And Judy will check this blog tomorrow, so any encouragement that you'd like to leave for her would be greatly appreciated, I'm sure.

I am praying for all of you, especially McKenna. I hope her fever breaks soon and she gets some fluids into her tiny body. I am sure this past week has been difficult for your all of you. Take care and make sure you get some rest.

Judy, just know that I am praying for you, and thinking of you as I go through my day. I hope McKenna, and the rest of you are feeling better by the time you read this. Just remember, this too shall pass, and McKenna will be back to the business of growing up to be an adorable little girl. I love you!

Judy, we are praying for all 4 of you today. I can't imagine how exhausting and scary all of this to be dealing with right now, so know that God is holding all of you in His hands - especially little McKenna. We are praying for a quick touch from Him and praying that He gives you peace in the midst of this storm. We love you!!
