Katy has come so far… and it is SO GOOD! Yesterday we started spring cleaning. She was like a cleaning machine! She has a gift of organization and went through all my Bible study notes and got my desk completely organized. She also scrubbed floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets. She worked right along with me all day. I asked her several times if she needed a break and she said, “No just something to eat.” I was a little concerned that she might not feel very well this morning after all that work, but she bounded out of bed again this morning! We are getting ready for her first appointment with her GI doctor since the Remicade treatment. I asked her what her main goal was for today’s appointment and she said, “to get me off of prednisone!” With her energy back in full force I’m sure she’ll be very convincing. I’ll add to this post when we return from seeing the doctor. Morning by morning new mercies I see. (from the hymn Great is Thy Faithfulness).
Katy’s doctor visit went well. She will cut back on her steroids tomorrow by 10mg. We are praying and hopeful that the Remicade in her system will keep everything under control and that her body will adjust quickly to having the steroids reduced. We are starting to get tickled by going out and running into people who saw Katy a few weeks ago. Their jaws drop, for a moment they are speechless, then they start to laugh joyfully, saying “Katy I can hardly believe it’s you!” It is true. Katy slumped over in a wheel chair with her eyes glazed over because of pain medication was a hard thing to see. Katy walking with a bounce in her step and her pony tail swinging makes you want to clap and shout hallelujah! Yes!Comments:
