prayer request for today

Please pray for me today. Ethan and I will leave in about 30 minutes (6:30am) to head to Boston for his appointment. I've been sick all weekend. We're hoping and assuming that what I have is still allergy-related (which is not contagious), but I've got the whole package (runny nose, sinus congestion, etc)... I've been mildly stressed that what I have may have morphed into a cold and that I could have passed any of the germs to Ethan (though he's not showing any signs of being sick right now). Also, I found a small/unusual rash on Ethan yesterday, and I've been sick to my stomach that it might be something that would require us to be re-admitted to the hospital. He's at higher risk for shingles, and many other rash-like conditions, and most all of them "mean" something that would require a hospital stay. Now, it could just be a sort of diaper rash, or something less serious that can be treated at home... but... if you could pray, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm just out of sorts today - and have been all weekend - and need an extra dose of God's grace and mercy today.

Praying always, but especially today for these specific requests.

Always remember the intercessions that are being made for you on a much higher level than ours. Jesus prays for us. The Holy Spirit intercedes on our behalf. Encourage yourself in the Lord and we will do the same! Love the Hunts

Praying for Ethan's protection and you to get better fast. Did Ethan ever have the chicken pox? Lydia never did, but once it showed up in her blood work that she did, then they realized that it was antibodies from IVIG that she had received. All that to say, she was on the drug that helps prevent shingles for quite a while until deciding that she never had chicken pox. Therefore, couldn't get shingles.
Praying the rash is easily taken care of without hurting our boy!
Love,
Liz
