Pray that Addie’s E. coli doesn’t turn into HUS like it did with Jax. And pray Jax continues to heal
Joel Taylor, leader of Bethel Music’s worship ministry, shared his family’s need for urgent prayer as his two small children fight serious E. coli infections in a local hospital.
According to the GoFundMe campaign created for the family, the Taylors’ 2-year-old son, Jaxon, been fighting the life-threatening infection since Dec 21. Now, his little girl, Addie, has also been diagnosed with the same infection.
“We just found out that Addie, our four-year old baby-girl, has the same strand of E. coli as Jaxon and needs to be admitted to the hospital immediately. Please pray that this doesn’t turn into HUS, which is what Jaxon is fighting for his life. God be our strength,” Taylor shared in an Instagram post.
In an update shared on Tuesday, Taylor shared a video of his best friend, Brian, playing his guitar and singing for Jaxon as the little boy received a blood transfusion.
“What hell meant to break me has failed. Now nothing can silence my praise. We cry out in worship,” Brian sang. “He’s doing so much better..keep praying,” Taylor said in the video’s caption.
Although the family reported that they are starting to see some progress in Jaxon, they continue to ask for prayer as Addie is still in serious danger.
“Both of our baby’s are on IV at UC Davis now.” Taylor said in an Instagram update. “Thank you church for all of your prayers, keep praying. Pray that Addie’s E. coli doesn’t turn into HUS like it did with Jax. And pray Jax continues to heal. His promises never fail!”
