It's been 4 weeks since we began this new cell journey. We expected infections and complications just didn't envision all of this. It wouldn't have changed our decision. She wasn't living a life, breathing and being yes, but not living so this was her chance. This is a lot to handle. Fortunately she doesn't know what she is enduring. Me, however, am experiencing a less than hopeful day. She had a CT of her chest this morning which revealed what looks like a nasty fungal infection. It is probably considered the worst one. It isn't confirmed yet. They went ahead today with a triple team of doctors in the OR. First the bone biopsy, then the endoscopy, finished with the bronchoscopy. Maybe more answers tomorrow. Meanwhile started the drug to treat the fungus. I've had these scenes of her dying, then battle them with the vision of her speaking in front of the crowd in a white lab coat. I know that God can heal her and listen to all the hopeful, encouraging words from you all which helps me so much. Today was tough. So you can all hope for me. She has gone 4 days & 3 nights without sleeping. She has finally closed her eyes for going on 15 minutes now. She needs the rest. She has been less perky and bubbly today. They will be starting physical, occupational, and cognitive therapy soon. This will help keep her muscles from atrophying, her hands busy, and her brain exercising. Sister Debbie came today and as always to my rescue on this less than happy day. She came bearing a chocolate milkshake which I have been requesting for awhile, soup, salad, and bread from Panera. It is good for the soul; it has to be. Oh, and a cute little fiberoptic tree which brightens the room, some stuffed Christmas animals(the moose sings), and a chocolate advent calendar. A chocolate and scripture a day must be good for the soul, too. She brought Kelsey the chicken fries she likes, but currently isn't allowed to eat them. She gets one more day, then their mine. (She cannot eat food that is more than a day old.) Friends we've made here have been visiting us. This is encouraging and supportive. That is all I'm good for today. Thankful as always.
