It’s Friday morning. I’m going in to work a little late this morning, to give Dawn a chance to get in a good walk in the cool of the day. She has missed her almost daily walks with Linda, her walking buddy of several years, and they have a lot of catching up to do.
Katy had several small meals yesterday, with less associated pain. Walking immediately after eating helps a lot. Maybe we should all adopt that habit. Three jars of baby food, some rice, a bite of delicious bread from Doreen, and a little ice cream added up to about sixteen ounces of food. That’s a new high. It’s a long way from being able to eat more than her big brothers (which she has done in the past!), but it’s good. Her level of constant pain is also lower, down to about two on a scale of one to ten.
Katy also got a new dress yesterday, which made her very happy. This one is much easier to put on and take off without getting tangled up with her TPN cord. If you’ve ever tried to get dressed with a tube attached to your arm, you will appreciate that. Fortunately the TPN bag is portable, so she carries it around like a back pack. Nearly every evening when I get home from work, she’s sitting at the dining room table surrounded by her laptop and a stack of cards, letters, and books (and her Virginia Tech water bottle).
Thanks to Dan for changing the format of the blog slightly. A bigger font and increased contrast will hopefully make it easier for some of our visually impaired friends to read.
Katy just woke up and says she’s feeling good this morning.
Thanks to all of you for your continuing prayers and encouragement.Comments:
