Please pray for Eloise!

Eloise unfortunately, had a very long and severe seizure this evening, out of the blue. The most worrying thing was her lack of breathing.
The team at the Royal Marsden have been brilliant and have sedated and ventilated her. She had a CT scan which is fine and shows no changes. She is currently being transferred via a PICU ambulance to St George’s to go onto Paediatric Intensive Care.

Please pray for the Doctors as they ascertain the cause of the seizure, work out when and how to take her off the ventilator, and for her to not seize and breathe again when this happens (this apparently won’t be for a while – anything from tomorrow morning to a few days). Please pray for wisdom.

Eloise is due her final dose of the high dose chemo in the morning – pray for wisdom as whether or not to give this (and if so, when) and also for her stem cell transplant on Friday which will still be needed as the chemo will have killed her bone marrow.

Please pray for Anna and the extended family too – that they too are peaceful.

  2. Sending loads of good wishes for the difficult decisions about Eloise’s care to become clear and for her to feel much better soon, with no more seizures. And strength for her parents and Anna while going through this week.

  5. A letter from Jesus to your beloved little Eloise…
    We are holding you all in prayer.
    You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
    as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
    You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
    Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed.
    Psalm 139:15-16
