Rough Night for Addison

Update @ 12:00am : Jared just spoke with Dr.'s they are not overly concerned but will keep a close eye on her tonight and order more x-rays in the a.m. If they were nervous about it they would have done more tests tonight. Praise God. This is one step in the right direction. Jared is coming home. It will be a rough night and we covet each and every prayer! Thank you! I just read Ephesians 3:20 "God is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope". I am asking and hoping for BIG things tonight and for Addison's recovery! Please join me! Thank you!

Original post:
We would appreciate your prayer. The NICU called us tonight after noticing that Addison's belly was distended. They are concerned that it could be an infection. They ran bloodwork that came back negative which is good but they are still concerned. She is having apneas and bradycardias which is not like her at all. The nurse said she seems very uncomfortable. The x-ray of her abdomen shows a lot of gas which could be the primary cause but they have discontinue feedings for now and she is back on the IV which she was just taken off this morning. They will test her blood again and do another x-ray in the morning if everything goes well through the night. Jared is there now and we are scared for our little girl. We trust that God is in this but we are shaken as this is our first big setback.
