No Change

There is still no change in Katy’s condition. It took us almost two hours to help her get up and dressed this morning. We went to have labs drawn today and all the blood work came back normal. It is not clear why she is in so much pain. I have another call into the hematologist and will discuss the problems with him tomorrow.

We are doing the best we can to stay on top of things while ministering to Katy. It is such a hard place we are in tonight. Thank you for your prayers.

    I am really saddened by the report tonight and I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for all of you–to see such a very special loved one suffer so is just heartbreaking. I know God is in charge and we continue to put our trust in Him. It is still tough.
    I’ve been writing a letter to you; maybe it will be a welcome diversion to read when I ever finish it!
    Much much love and many many prayers,

    Another song for you, Katy! I used to play this on our old beat-up piano when things were really tough. I never suffered physical pain the way you do, but I was in distressful situation that seemed to have no end.

    I must tell Jesus all of my trials;
    I cannot bear these burdens alone;
    In my distress He kindly will help me;
    He ever loves and cares for His own.

    I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
    I cannot bear my burdens alone;
    I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
    Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

    Love, Aunt Doris

    No power of hell, no scheme of man
    Can ever pluck me from His hand
    Til He returns or calls me home
    Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

    I’ll add a bit of comforting music myself! All my love to you Katy, Dawn, Paul, and Qavah. Prayers for your pain, both physical and emotional. In Christ, Aleah

    Praying for you. “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” May He be your strength tonight as you continue to battle the pain and discouragement…and may He grant you relief soon!

  5. Candice and Crystal Says:

    Oh Katy, Our hearts are breaking for you tonight. We pray that you will find relief soon. I think back to the days when we were first diagnosed with HPS, many years ago. It was a huge struggle for me as well. I didn’t ever think it would get better. Please don’t be discouraged, I know you faith in the Lord is strong. May your GI doctor or Hematologist bring you so answers quickly. Love and prayers,
    Candice & Crystal

  6. Sandy Says:

    Prayers continue from here. I hope today is a better day.

  7. Lillian Oliveira Says:

    Dear ones, I am thinking that this must be a direct attack from Satan. I know several people who are mighty warriors for the Lord who experience attacks of pain, fever and other physical symptoms. Since there is no physical basis that they can find, and since we know that Katy’s battle is defeating Satan in many people’s lives, I believe we need to go on the attack. We need to ask Jesus to rebuke Satan’s attack of pain, in the Name of Jesus and by the power of His blood which won the final victory over Satan on the cross, and the victory was sealed by the resurrection. We need to bind his every power and pray a “wall of fire” of protection around Katy. And we need have no fear of Satan if we belong to Jesus, because “Greater is He than is in you, than he that is in the world.” The demons fell cringing before Jesus, asking for mercy, but He has no tolerance for pure evil. Let’s all join hands in spirit across the many miles and see the glory of God.

    Love, Aunt Lil

    I was going to add the same song as “Aunt Doris.” Sometimes, all I feel like doing is crying when I read your updates …. yet that is what Satan wants and it doesn’t help you or anybody else. Our wise, retired M.D. and mentor always prays with each of his patients and is the first to say, “We doctors do NOT have all of the answers …. only the Great Physician does. We are just HIS instruments …. faulty as we may be …. and helpless as we often feel.” So don’t fault them too harshly … for whatever reason unbeknownst to us, God has not revealed Himself or the answers in this suffering situation yet …. His timing is perfect; ours isn’t …. and, oh, forgive us, but is it possible that we, in our understandable humanity, are sinfully being impatient (and perhaps even a bit judgmental?) with Him?
    With HOPE and TRUST, we’re praying for grace and peace and perserverence in the midst of the lack of understanding and prayers that HE will reveal HIMSELF more and more through all of this….and, at the same time, not giving up in prayers for total healing.
    He HEARS your cries and HE KNOWS and loves, and yet somehow, allows. Patricia

  9. Jennifer Blugerman Says:

    Katy and family,
    We are truly sorry to hear of more setbacks. The few “normal” days only seem to revive you long enough to catch your breath and begin again — like the brief, pain-free moment between contractions during childbirth. My prayer is that all of this will give birth to a miracle that God has yet to reveal!

    In His grip,
