Katy is improving. It was such a long night! She was not keeping anything down and every two hours I gave her pain meds to keep her abdomen from spasms. I prayed most of the night for the mercies of God. He was silent. By morning I called her GI doctor. He ordered tests for liver and pancreas functions to be drawn early this morning. When the nurse called this afternoon to say the tests came back all in the normal range I mentioned that Katy had been put on hormone replacement last week. That started a whole new conversation. With some encouragement from a wise friend, I called the pharmacy in charge of the compounding formula to help balance Katy’s body after her hysterectomy. When the pharmacist looked up the prescription based on what I told him, he discovered that the doctor had not written an appropriate dose for Katy. She was given far and above the amount of estrogen she needed and her body was going crazy. The pharmacist told me not to use any more of the cream until I got back with the doctor. Over the next day or two, Katy will begin to feel much better according to the pharmacist.
I have prayed a simple prayer for as long as I have had children. “Lord, bring the hidden things out of the darkness into the light.” The Lord has been faithful to show me those things in order to bring light and life to many circumstances we have faced as a family. I prayed last night that the hidden problem with Katy’s body would be brought to light and throughout the day today, answers began to come until the revelation I had prayed for last night brought light. God was silently working!
Katy is rejoicing that her nausea and headache will soon be gone. She has completely let go and forgiven the mistake. These things happen. Doctors are human. We are looking forward to tomorrow and the hope that when she wakes up, Katy will be able to have the joyful day that she has been waiting for.
