Please pray for our friends...

...Alana and Peter.  Their new little baby is in the hospital in critical condition.  Here is an update from our friend, Angela:

Dear Friends of Peter and Alana...Please pray for their baby Ellie Marie. She is in the hospital, having fluid drained off of her brain right now. I just talked to Peter. Ellie is in critical condition. They are hoping that the drained fluid will relieve pressure. They will do a culture to try to find out what is causing the swelling, but they won't know anything for 36-72 hours. Peter asked me to ask you all to pray. I will keep you updated as I find out more...

And then a more recent update from Peter: 

Thank you so much for praying for us. We had no wish to return to the hospital this soon, but it's very serious. She bleeding from the interior of her brain and they're not sure why. It could be an infection of some sort or perhaps something else. As Angela mentioned they're doing several cultures to determine that. She's also having problem with her blood clotting. Our heads are spinning. That's all we know for now.

Please pray for them.  Pray for faith for them...for strength...and for Ellie's healing. Pray too for their little girl, Kate, who is Caleb's age and has a birthday two days after his.  Thanks so much.
