Prayer Request

This is Brandon, posting for Amy. Amy has been running fevers off and on all day long today, so they did some chest X-rays as part of normal procedure for when she runs fevers, and the X-rays showed contaminants in both lungs. From what I understand it is most likely a fungal infection of some sort that has been able to develop because of her low counts from chemo. Sometime in the next day or two she will get a CAT scan as well as have a Bronchoscopy (from what I understand it is a tube stuck down her throat into her lungs to examine the inside of the lungs) -- and they will also take a water-based biopsy from her lungs at the same time (though I must admit I don't really understand it or how it works at this point in time, especially since I wasn't there when the doctors explained it).

Anyway, all that to say, if you could pray for her these next couple days in regards to each of the two tests (CAT scan and Bronchoscopy), as well as in regards to her infection and fevers, we'd appreciate it very much.

All of my daily trials seem so insignificant compared to my sister in Christ, Amy.
I am praying. I put on a special bracelet to wear it says pray without ceasing. It is in honor of Amy. I will pray for her everytime I look down at it.
I pray for healing for Amy.

CAme by this morning to pray for dear Amy, I pray for comfort for her and for the Dr.s wisdom in handling these problems she is having.
Father please touch Amy's body today in a way only you can do. We know you are the great physician Lord and you do still perform miracles. I pray she feels the warmth of you today.

Praying that Amy's lungs would clear up soon and that the infections and fever would be gone in Jesus' name. May God's peace be with Amy as well during these tests. I've been praying for complete healing and restoration--thanks for the update Brandon. God bless you during this time.
