Katy has been having serious problems and is now back in the hospital. She was having so much trouble breathing today that Dawn had to breath into her mouth many times to keep her conscious. When she arrived at the hospital she was put on oxygen and it helped a lot, although she did continue to lose consciousness from the pain that she is enduring. When I left the hospital a few minutes ago she seemed to be doing better, but she is exhausted and needs sleep badly. Paul and Dawn have gotten very little sleep over the past week so Julie is spending the night at the hospital with Katy.
It is likely that Katy will be having an operation within the next few days. A very knowledgeable and wise physician has told Katy personally that it this will relieve some of her suffering. Only God’s faithfulness and your prayers have sustained this family through the ordeals of the past year. I am writing to ask you to continue to pray for Katy and her family. Thank you for your prayers and continual encouragement.
