Update on Sullivan

As I mentioned a few days ago, my sweet brother, Sullivan, has been very sick for the last week. After many calls to the doctors over the weekend, they suggested that he come back to see the doctor again yesterday because he wasn't improving and the medications were causing even more problems. At the doctor's office, they admitted him to the hospital and he will be staying there for about 3 days. Mama says that they have him on many pain medications now and he is doing better. Hopefully they will be able to get the antibiotic to start working so he won't continue to need the powerful pain medications. It's all been pretty confusing because even the doctors haven't completely understood what was causing his sickness to get worse instead of getting better. Please pray that the Lord will give the doctors' wisdom, quickly heal Sulli, and also for Mama who is staying there with him at the hospital.Sullivan's 9th birthday is Sunday, so we're really hoping that he will be better by then! We miss his cheerful attitude here around the house.
