Our little grand daughter needs your thoughts and prayers

Our daughter has just phoned. She is on the way to the hospital with our 7 year old grand daughter who has hugely swollen tonsils; a raging temerature and breathing problems.
Our daughter sat up with her all night and is naturally very anxious. Being a single Parent she has no-one to share the burden. Please will you keep them both in your thoughts? She has promised to phone again later on tonight.
I am so anxious about them both.

Sure we will, CS-----I can just feel for your daughter.........the EM doctors aren't going to mess around---hopefully a shot of penicillin will do the trick quickly and if it continues they can always remove them.......lots of good thoughts and prayers coming your way and please keep us posted as to her condition.......hang in there, Grandma ...she's going to be fine in a few days
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

I'm sorry the little one is going through this awful mess. Poor little thing. She is in my prayers and so are you and her mom.

Thanks all of you. She had taken her to the small local hospital and been referred on to the major hospital with Paediatric Consultants. They were on their way there when she phoned. Grand Daughter is asthmatic as well.
I know well that God has them both in His care so why do I still feel like crying.It's hard to be so far away from them at a time like this. My daughter is such a gutsy little Mother and I would so like to be able to smooth the way a little.
Thanks again folks.

I'm sending prayers for all of you. I would be very frightened also. It's a good thing that your daughter is strong but a sick child can bring us to our knees.
