Mom called from the hospital to give an update. God has mercifully given Katy 5 1/2 hours of sleep during the night. Her pain has not gone away, but her ability to cope with it has increased. Mom put her into a hot shower today and Katy started to sing in the shower. This is evidence to us that the Sovereign Lord is her strength and song. Mom read to Katy Psalm 71:20-21:
“Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.”
We see how merciful God has been, and we ask you to pray today for three specific things:
- Katy’s liver function tests are abnormal and her skin is tinted yellow. We are praying that this is only a reaction to being dehydrated. Please pray that her liver goes back to functioning normally.
- Pray for healing of Katy’s mouth ulcers, which haven’t healed in the past two weeks.
- They’ve decided to put the TPN back in her arm vein rather than in her chest because it was less invasive. Once Katy is stronger, they plan to have the line put in her chest which is better but requires a longer procedure (45 minutes).
