As the Burns family prepared to return to Dayton from Kansas this weekend, little Robert (their grandson) developed a high fever and had to be taken to the ER in Effingham, IL. With his diagnosis of neutropenia (abnormally low white blood cell count), this is extremely serious. The hospital in Effingham determined that he needed to be transported to Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, where he and Andrea are now. The rest of the family, including granddaughter Lucy, are returning to Dayton. Please pray for Robert, the doctors and staff, and for Andrea who is alone in St. Louis dealing with the situation.
