Wednesday 7AM February 28, 2007

Katy has been through every test that RMH had to offer her throughout the night. True to form the tests results appear “Normal” and therefore we were sent home this morning with the recommendation that Katy go back to using her pain patches! Needless to say, our trip home was silent. There is nothing left but groaning in our spirits. Katy has gone to her room and I pray is being consoled by the Lord Himself. I’m planning on calling her doctor again today to discuss other drug options. I will add that one of the CAT scans suggested there was a “thickening” of the wall of the gall bladder and a further gall bladder function study was recommended.

Katy was able to sleep between tests, but I have not slept since yesterday so I will quickly get some rest now in order to better comprehend the phone conversation I’ll have later with the doctor. We are all eagerly awaiting better days for Katy. Thank you for praying.

    I can’t believe they sent you home! It seems like there is more that they could do. I hope and pray that the Lord will grant you relief from your pain and sweet sleep. Keep your chin up–I know that it’s hard now and it’s hard to hear that you’re in pain, but I know the Lord has His reasons and He is faithful.
    With love and prayers,

    What a frustrating time. I pray for peace that passes understanding for you all today and for some insight for the doctors.

    Dear Dawn,

    I know your family must be completely drained right now, so please continue to rely on God and he will see you through. As for gallbladder issues……if memory serves me right….those of us with a crohn’s condition can be more susceptible to gallstones. I will also tell you , the pain from them can be excruciating. Not from personal experience, but from watching my husband just double over in pain for hours. We would give him some pain killers, and let him sleep it off until my GI doc was able to see him. At which time she recommended that it be taken out. He would have infrequuent attacks, but she didn’t want him to get into an emergency situations. So, with that being said, my hope is that this could be a big part of Katy’s problem, as it can be easily remedied even with HPS. As always, my prayer will be that you can get some rest, that God will brighten Katy’s spirits, and that God will give the docs the guidance and answers they need to figure all this out.
    God Bless and Care for you all,
    Karen Tillman

    All I can do is shake my head and sigh! I can’t believe they sent you home either.My prayer for you today is that the Almighty God of all creation bring His powerful healing to this humanly impossible situation.

    We will continue to pray for this supernatural healing!
