Today was another pain filled day so Katy stayed on her cot downstairs. I do most of my work during the day in the main part of the house and she enjoys hearing me washing dishes, running the washing machine, and making phone calls. Today the first appointments were made for Katy’s Remicade infusions. They will start on April 4th. If all the insurance paperwork is in order she will begin a series of three treatments two weeks apart. There are risks with this drug. We have researched it. We have had to weigh the risks against the quality of life as Katy is living it now. She wants to go ahead with the treatments with the hope that her body will tolerate the drug. If it does, she should begin to feel an improvement within ten days.
We have read her evening devotions to her tonight. Her eyes have been swollen nearly shut because of the steroids and she hasn’t been able to read or sit at her computer today. We know this will pass, so Katy and I talked today about the trips we want to take, and the people we want to see. One thing we talked about doing is visiting all the churches that have been praying for her. We thought it would be fun to meet strangers who became our friends through all of this. We had some happy daydreams about those things and it helped us both to focus on the future. We have the faith that even though today was tough, God is at work, this will pass, and He is keeping her heart in peace.Comments:
