Prayers for Samantha Joy McVeigh

Last week was a "Joy"-ous event as we welcomed Samantha Joy into our world, then welcomed her into her home two days later and introduced her to her big sister Bethany (see below for the video). Early this morning, Samantha Joy returned to the hospital--albeit a different one down in Salt Lake City, about 45 minutes away from our house in Ogden. She developed noticeable breathing problems yesterday, and we took her to urgent care at 11:00pm. By 12:00am, Samantha was on her way to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City in an ambulance with Mom in the front seat, and Daddy following behind in the van. We've had a long morning of lots of tests, and to make a long story short, the doctors aren't sure why she has some fluid in her lungs, but they are today looking at whether it's a lung infection or a heart problem. We will be here at least until tomorrow, but probably into the weekend.

So, we covet your prayers, and we are thankful for the calls and texts we've received so far. We'll do our best to keep everyone up to date.

  1. We love you Samantha! You can do it, you will be healthy. Take it from me, I have always had a hard time with my lungs, but recently heard that it is hard to get them all in one X-Ray film because I have exercised so much. Someday I'll take you skiing and show you how to do that.
    We love you, I can't wait to introduce you to your Aunt Heather and Cousin Cayden.
    Feel better, sweetheart. I want more videos of you, cutie. All our love goes out to you and your family!!!
