Very early this morning the lab reports came back showing Katy has 2,000 more platelets than she did yesterday. She is moving in the right direction WITHOUT A TRANSFUSION! In addition she has been able to eat 2 more jars of baby food and crackers today. Right at this moment we are in the hospital medical library reading the blog. I wish I had the camera! I have one of those ear to ear grins, my heart is filled with gratitude, and I’m asking, “God, What are You up to?” I think He’s showing us some GLORY! What do you think?
We send our love from RMH! Dawn and Katy
Update from Paul: After Dawn wrote this post, we received confirmation that the infection Katy has been fighting is associated with the Hickman port that supplies her nutrition. This means the Hickman port will need to be removed. Even though she is eating some, Katy knows she is not yet able to eat enough to sustain herself. We praise God for the progress she is making, and ask for your prayers as we consider our next steps. She will probably need another type of temporary port while her body continues to build back up.
