ER and L&D...please pray!!!

Witt has continued to run a low grade fever all evening and his heart rate has been higher than it normally is. Mel and Austan have decided to take Witt on down to the ER after talking to a couple of nurses and a Cardiologist. The Cardiologist didn't seem to be too worried about his elevated heart rate...but, there's always a concern of urinary tract infection when Witt has fever because of the kidney reflux he has.
We are just praying that the doctors can rule out any infection and send that sweet boy home tonight! Mel and Austan continue to amaze me with their strength and faith through trial after trial. They are truly AWESOME.
**11:30pm text from Karen...
Right now they are thinking it's a normal childhood thing...not alarmed at heart rate. His fever was 101.8 with rectal thermometer. No sounds of fluid in lungs. Will do battery of tests.

AND, please keep Lisha, Lee and baby girl Lupher (Austan's brother and his wife) in your prayers, too! Lisha delivered Witt's newest cousin this evening...the sweet little girl decided to come a couple of weeks early.
