Considering Rhema’s gap condition and elevated CRP numbers yesterday, one of the evening doctors ordered an IV and antibiotics even though no positive cultures came back from the ongoing tests.  They were about to go through with the IV this morning, but noticed that Rhema’s CRP levels dropped in half, the cultures remained negative and her white and red blood cell counts are completely normal since the night before.  The morning doctor cancelled the IV as it was not deemed necessary at this time.  PRAYER WORKS!
