Three Great Weeks

After the second dose of Remicade it took Katy awhile to get back on her feet. But when she did, she was like the energizer bunny. We made the most of every day. We sure know how to enjoy ourselves and we did for the past three weeks. However, last night when the Remicade began to wear off, the signs of HPS reappeared in an overwhelming manner. Today the pain has returned. With ten days until the next treatment, we again ask for your faithful prayers. We plan to make it through each day as we have during the last flare-ups, by the grace of God. He teaches us so much during these times. He is ever faithful and in the suffering shows us more of Who He is!

I will call her GI doctor tomorrow to let him know what’s going on and will keep you informed.

“Behold I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too difficult for me?” Jeremiah 32:27

    Hey guys!
    I’m sorry to hear that the pain is back! I was so enjoying the good days with you all - just reading about all the cleaning was wearing me out!!! *grin*

    We will continue to pray for you and for your doctors. We have 16 more days and nights with out Josh…then he will hopefully be ‘done’ with this yucky work project. So — we will be counting down the days with you, trusting in the Lord, and leaning on Him during this tough time!!!

    We love you guys!

    I’m sorry the pain is back. Hopefully the doctors can figure out what dose to give you so it will last the whole amount of time and not wear off like this! I’ll be praying for your relief and comfort. Take courage, dear one!
    Love and prayers,
    Jen :-)

    Heavenly Father, You are aware of the struggle Katy is experiencing, the pain and the despair. You know the desire of her heart to be healed of this illness. I ask now for Your healing touch. I know that You are able and that just like in Bible times, You can heal her.

    I know that You will choose what is best for her. I pray that through this trial, she will draw close to You, that You will be her comfort and strength. I pray that ultimately, whatever happens, You will be glorified through her. I pray this in Jesus Name

    It is always sad to hear that Katy is in pain again. I have wondered, has the prednisone been lowered again yet? I’m not a medical person, but I wondered if it is possibly interfering with the remicade.

    God bless you all, and give you peace, and give Katy pain-free rest.

    It hurts to hear that once again, you aren’t feeling well. What a roller coaster! I’m beginning to see that, though your life seems to be rather unpredictable, never knowing from one day to the next how you will feel, all of our lives are like that — most of us just don’t realize it. I’ve really come to understand how to lean on my Father in every moment, not just the ones where I can see my need of Him - I need Him at all times! God is still using this blog to minister — I hope that gives both of you the strength to keep on keepin’ on, knowing the the Lord is using you still. I pray for peace for your hearts. Love always, Aleah

    Praise God for those good weeks! I hope a peace that passes understanding covers you all as you wait for Katy’s next treatment. Prayers continue from here.
