A Few Steps Backwards

Rounds with the Drs this morning was NOT what we were hoping for. Jane’s Dr. has suggested that she is taking steps backwards instead of showing signs of improvement. She said that Jane may be having some other issues with her heart and, in turn, is affecting the function of her liver and other organs. She is having an echocardiogram this morning (heart ultrasound) that will tell the docs what is actually going in with her heart. This will hopefully rule out any further complications (at least that is what I am hoping for). In the meantime, it is urgent that they try to drain the fluids from her body. She has an overload of fluids in her body that can also be causing some of the current problems. They discontinued her pain meds and paralytic yesterday in hopes that she will begin to move a bit, which will also help to reduce the fluid in her body. No movement yet!

My poor baby- this cycle seems never-ending……

***On a better note, I cleaned her up a bit yesterday and gave her a sponge bath. At least while she lays there helpless she can look as cute and clean as possible :)

    Hi Daniel and Elisabeth;
    I’m so sorry, you probably feel like you’re on a roller coaster ride with this latest development. We’re praying for Jane, that all will be as it should, that God is working in ways that can’t yet be seen. Sending you both big hugs today, and trusting the Lord for Jane’s life and health, He’s already brought her this far. Much love to you. xoxo E

    “He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: He shall gather the lambs in His arms, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young”
    Isaiah 40:11

    Let Jesus carry all of you in His bosom (close to His heart) . Jesus is our shepherd and our sheperd cares for His sheep, provides pasture for them, guards and protects them and carries those when they need Him the most.
