We arrived home shortly before one o’clock. Katy is doing well. She is sipping fluids constantly in an effort to stay hydrated and was able to eat a little bit at lunch. The upper GI part of the test revealed a narrowing at the base of her esophagus where most of her pain has been. She had a struggle with reflux while swallowing barium, but even that has been recorded and may be more for the doctors to think about as they approach a treatment plan.
We were gone for two days and when we arrived at home Paul had the coffee pot ready for me to turn on. I really don’t drink very much coffee, but the thought of coming home on a cold winter day to a pot of hot coffee and having the aroma fill the house is something he knew I would love. There was a baby gift for Annelise on the breezeway, and clean empty containers on the kitchen counter. Those containers were full of delicious food provided by church friends, and I’m sure the guys appreciated it. All these things together speak to me of the love and thoughtfulness of friends. It is a precious gift and we are all grateful. Katy and I are waiting for the home healthcare nurse to come and give her the IV Rocephin treatment, but after that we are going to turn in for a long winter’s nap.
Thank you Josh and Jess for keeping Ellie for us. Katy and I read the comments and had a good time thinking about Ellie playing with your little ones. Thank you for your prayers and the practical help. Katy sends her love to all of you and has been writing a little bit in preparation for the new website which should be ready soon. Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments. When I read them to Katy during difficult times it is like having cheerleaders in the room.Comments:
