Wednesday & Thursday

So Kelsey finished her pulmonary function test and bone marrow biopsy with no major events. In fact, she had mentioned to the doctor who was giving her the sedation for the biopsy that she had remembered her other procedures and really didn't want to know about this one. He gave her a bit more sedation than she had before with just the result she was after. She completely doesn't remember anything. I keep relating different things she said or did, and she laughs because she is so true to nature even when she is sedated. Yes, we still can laugh. Today we completed the two hour radiation oncology consult. Nothing we didn't expect. She had to drink a bunch of barium and get injected with the dye. She felt some tightness in her chest and has felt pretty sickly since then. She had to go to her dental appointment which we moved along quickly to get her back to her room. She just wants to do nothing for awhile. It is a very rainy dreary day, so glad to not have to be out in it. All that's left is more blood draws, see the surgeon about her finger, and sign the consent. Whew! Almost there. We had some good news from the transplant doctor. He has found a 5 out of 6 cord blood match which he is excited about. They are still running the HLA testing on it, but it is looking good. The nurses relate that once you are his patient, he hovers and pays close attention to you. That's good to know. They let us rearranged her transplant room, a new TV was installed(the other one was screwy), it already has a frig, and it will have a microwave. Our suite is about ready. Now, we just need the date.
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
We indeed are praising Him.

  1. Thank you for sharing as much as you can. It helps us know how to pray for your family. Quite honestly, it also helps us deal with our own personal battles because we know we are not the only ones going through difficult times. Our family will continue to pray for your family and Kelsey in particular right now.

    With love in Christ,
