A Speed Bump

As I type this, Katy has gotten herself to the bathroom but is in a great deal of pain. She has the deep bone pain that has returned since last night, and is planning to soak in a hot tub. We were hoping to ring in the new year tonight with fireworks, but Paul Burton said he would see how Katy feels and if she isn’t up to it we will set them off another night. I will call the hematologist first thing in the morning to check on Katy’s platelet count. We are praying her through this night, hoping for a change by morning. For the past couple of weeks Katy has had the bone pain from time to time but it diminished and she was able to carry on a normal day. Today, however, the pain has kept her confined to bed, and we’ve had to keep up her break-through pain medication faithfully in order to keep her comfortable. This has been so discouraging for her, yet she has voiced her thanks to God for the many wonderful memories we made over the holidays. She was able to do so many things that were dreams come true for her. Paul and I are thankful that we are rested and ready to meet this new challenge. The new year is upon us and we are looking forward to all the adventures in store for us. We pray that you will have a wonderful year, too.

    Dear Katy,
    I’m sorry you’ve hit this speed bump. I know, though, that the Lord will bring you through it and you’ll be even stronger because of it. :-)
    I pray that the New Year will be a blessing for you!!
    Love and prayers,
    Jen :-)

    Happy New Year, Katy & family! :)
    Katy, I am deeply sorrowed about your pain. I am voicing your name to the Heavens tonight, beautiful one, and I know the Lord of Lords will hear my cry. Praying for all those ill and in need tonight, we remember them before our Great Healer. I love you so much! Dawn & Paul, so glad you can be home to comfort your daughter and that you are tanked up from a great get-away’s rest! I will be around to visit sometime soon :)
    Prayers for you always,

    Prayers for you always. Dawn, I can only imagine how discouraging it is for you as well as Katy when these setbacks occur. I am so glad you and Paul got your mini-vacation in. And may you have another 33 years of marital bliss!

    Praying that this pain will cease, that full comfort will return, and that you will be back on your feet again very soon. Being with you again on Wednesday night was so refreshing and such a sweet time of fellowship. I love you and continue to daily lift you before the throne of grace.

    With love,
