This morning we got up and everything seemed normal. The only thing abnormal about the morning is that Una (Pastor Kenny’s future wife) and I were going to a one day church conference. I tired to get Evangeline to eat breakfast and she was having a hard time. I pushed her a little but finally became satisfied with the amount she ate. Soon after she threw up, and then again, and again. I thought it might be virus and John was there to take care of her, so I left with Una.
Two hours later, I was driving back to the base after John called me and said she was still vomiting every half hour and now diarrhea. I came home to find a very lethargic Evangeline. She could not even keep water down. On the long drive from the base to the city Evangeline was limp, still breathing, but not moving much and sleeping. This is VERY unusual. We got to the hospital and saw our pediatrician right away. She took one look at her and said, “We need to get her on an IV right away.” They hooked her up and took her blood and the test came back positive for food poisoning or something similar. We both have had everything Evangeline had to eat so we are not sure what has caused this. The doctor said that it was good that we acted quick because her health was diminishing fast.
Please pray for Evangeline. She looks so pitiful! below is a picture.
