prayer request for leah

Our EB friend, Leah, is in the hospital. She stopped eating on Christmas day, and it appears as though she will be getting a g-tube very soon. Please be in prayer for her (and her family), as any procedure is complicated for an EB baby. Thankfully, she will not have to be intubated, since she already has a trach, but there is still danger for infection and complication.

You can follow Leah's blog here. She is just a few weeks older than Jonah and also has Junctional EB.

Hi Patrice:
Thank you so much for the prayer request for Leah. She really didn't have a wonderful time Christmas. Her throat was so swollen and we think her teeth are really bothering her too. She will have her teeth checked while in the hospital.
Jonah looks wonderful in the pictures enjoying his 1st Christmas. Hope you had a wonderful time enjoying your precious little boy. Prayers for you guys always. Love you. Love Leah's Nana

Thanks for sharing the prayer request. Every prayer I send up for Leah will include Jonah and all the other EB kids I know nothing about. All because you've shared your experience. God Bless You.
