Hey folks, I have a big prayer request. We just got back from the vet and found out that Ivan has chronic Ehrlichia, and has likely had the disease for as long as we've known him. This can be fatal. Please be praying for him and for us as we are not ready to lose our sweet little boy. He's currently undergoing antibiotic treatment and is on 24 hour watch at the vet's office. We are hoping he will not need a blood transfusion, but it seems likely. Please pray for healing for Ivan, wisdom for Dr. Blonien and Dr. Shelton, and peace and comfort for Chris and I.
