About four o’clock this morning I woke up to Katy crying. She was absolutely miserable and I made a decision to call one of her doctors first thing this morning. I left a message for his nurse and got a call back within an hour with an appointment for early this afternoon. After seeing Katy, her doctor has scheduled a CT scan for tomorrow morning. The bruising and bleeding continues to be problematic and his concern was that the same thing can be going on inside of her. She started bleeding from several places today and had approximately ten band-aides on her arms and legs. I took the information Sandy had given me to the doctor today, and he felt it was an appropriate time to use the same drug on Katy. So next Monday morning, Katy will see a hematologist about getting this under control. He also wrote orders to start another anti-inflammatory drug that has had some measure of success in treating Crohn’s symptoms.
In the meantime, Katy needs our prayers for comfort. Her pain levels are so high that the medication is not covering it. We also have to be very careful about her safety because the slightest bump brings on a bruise.
Before we left the doctor’s office today, the nurse told me that when she heard my message she knew that Katy was in a desperate state. She said, “I knew from your voice something needed to happen today.” I asked if she had children and she told me she had two. “One of them has passed away,” She said, “so when I heard your voice, I understood.” Please join me in asking the Lord to comfort and bless this nurse. Her name is Dianne. Everyone has a story to tell.Comments:
