We’re tempted to be a bit discouraged. As of 9:45pm, there has been no change to Katy’s medication or routine, though several changes were recommended by the Maryland doctor. Katy’s Carilion doctor has been stuck in surgery all day, and her primary nurse said they wouldn’t be able to give Katy an updated IV (TPN) with more nutrition until 6pm tomorrow because that was “standard policy.” We are mostly concerned that Katy would be started on that IV quickly so she can gain physical strength for the days ahead.
Please pray for God’s direct intervention here. We don’t want to get angry at people. We’re not really “battling” against them, but against spiritual forces (Ephesians 6:12). Pray that we can be consistent ambassadors of Christ’s grace to the hospital staff.
Jenn (my wife) works as a Physician Assistant for Carilion (the company that also owns the hospital). She is going to take off and spend a part of the day with Katy tomorrow. We’re hoping that maybe her Carilion badge will pull some strings.
Thank you for interceding before the throne of grace for us!
