This evening we had the good news that Katy’s blood work is showing signs of great improvement. Her lipase and amylase levels were a little high yet but consistent with the pancreas problems from not eating for so long. The bacteria cultures after twenty-four hours were negative. The lab will continue to check them for any bacteria growth for another forty-eight hours. Her platelet count is at 256,000. All of this news was very encouraging. While the swelling in her neck is gone, Katy’s hands and feet are still giving her a problem, but she walked into the surgeon’s office on her own two feet. That visit was also encouraging and tonight Katy is free of the tubing and adhesives that are all a part of IV feeding and medications. She is happy in her home tonight. Right now she is sitting beside me making place cards for tomorrow’s family dinner.
We’ll be thinking of you tomorrow as you celebrate God’s faithfulness. We wish you all a happy Thanksgiving.
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting, and all the people said, “Amen!” and praise the Lord. I Chronicles 16:36Comments:
