The doctor Katy saw today agreed that a MRI would tell us whether Katy’s pain is coming from a fracture in her back or something else. He has to set that up for next week. She has had such tremendous pain that she has not been able to recover from her trip to the doctor yet. I hope she will feel well enough tonight to sit at her computer. I’m so glad we were able to move her office into her room this past summer, since it is hard for her to walk very far. Paul also set up a little Christmas tree in her room today, and it is all lit up tonight.
We continue to ask for prayer, because we know God hears us. It is building our faith to have to wait on Him. Katy has especially struggled with the realities of HPS this week. One of the wounds on her foot opened up again and it took us a long time to get it to stop bleeding today. We are encouraged that she doesn’t suffer from those terrible muscle spasms anymore, and we do try to count our blessings, but eating is so painful that she has not had anything to eat since Wednesday evening. We were together just a few minutes ago and I heard her stomach growling for food. I asked if I could fix her some broth and she said the pain wasn’t worth it. So, I am fixing up the bathroom with candles and a space heater to make it look and feel like a spa. I have some lavender oil for soaking her feet. There is more than one way to give the soul a feast. Unless something changes in Katy’s condition overnight, I will not post tomorrow.
Paul wants to take Qavah to the little town of Buchanan on the James River for their Christmas parade tomorrow. It has been a long time since he has had a little person to ride on his shoulders. Qavah does a lot of squealing and clapping to make the effort worthwhile. Enjoy your holiday festivities this weekend, then write to tell us about them!Comments:
