The X-ray of her stomach didn’t reveal much, but it did reveal some good news about her pillcam. I don’t think I’ve blogged about that, but it’s a really cool piece of technology. About eleven days ago, when the doctors were trying to figure out what was wrong with her, they had her swallow an itty bitty camera in the shape of a pill that had enough energy to last for 8 hours, and sent pictures via wireless radio to a receiver unit. It was more like a “horse-pill” in size, but she was able to swallow it. The pictures told the doctors almost nothing (which HPSers know could easily be true). Katy’s X-ray today showed that it was pretty close to coming out. That was good news, although studies have shown it really doesn’t hurt anything to be in there for 2-3 weeks (which is the longest people have had them). What someone remembered last night (just in time!) was that she can’t get an MRI until the pillcam is gone since it has some metal in it. Phew! It’s God’s grace that someone remembered.
- For Katy to be relaxed, patient, and able to adjust to the more chaotic environment of the hospital. Pray that she will let the Peace of Christ go from her soul outward.
- For Katy’s spirits to be encouraged. She hasn’t been able to see the website in several days and wants to read your comments herself.
- For no more spasms!
- For the hospital to be thoughtful of Katy’s needs. It startles her when they come in the room loudly and quickly, especially with her limited eyesight.
