* UPDATE: Katy is in RMH. She is being given Salumedrol by IV and will be there until she is stable. She hopes that means a couple of days. Thank you, Julie, for pulling another all-nighter!
Persevering is not for the faint of heart. It is a quality that requires a great deal of discipline. Tonight Katy is back at Roanoke Memorial, and Julie is there with her. I had been giving her round the clock care since the week before Remicade and tonight, with her electrolytes so out of whack, I called her physician and it was decided that I had done all I could at home. Katy is now over at RMH having some tests done to determine her adrenal function and electrolyte levels. I am home praying for her. She is so discouraged. She is forced to keep her medical care a top priority when she would rather be doing for others. Every day away from her computer is another day of falling behind in her studies. I ache for her. She is trying so hard in every way to beat these setbacks. She trusts God so completely and would much rather be free of the cares of this world, but she perseveres knowing that her tasks here are not finished.
We are praying for divine revelation for Katy’s doctors. We wonder why her cells are not using the huge amounts of potassium, magnesium, and calcium we are giving her. We wish with all our hearts that someone somewhere would take enough interest to take the knowledge we have gained over the past year, and study it. We suspect many of these problems are related to the steroids and would like to pursue every method of getting her off of them. We have more questions than answers right now. We appreciate the many words of encouragement on yesterday’s post. You have also hung in there with us and persevered in prayer. Tonight our prayer is as simple as this, “Lord, show us your glory; wow us with your power for your own name sake!” AmenComments:
