MD Anderson – Update

It has been over a week since I posted, sometimes in the business of life….time slips away from you!

The week of April 25th was trying for Felicia.  She was so sick starting on the 22nd.  Starting with the nausea and then the other end kicked in, so by Monday she was very dehydrated.  Her temperature spiked and Monday afternoon she called me and said the doctor told her to come into the ER.  We arrived and they immediately put her into a room and started pumping fluids in.  They went through the first two bags in the snap of a finger (ok maybe not that fast, but fast enough that she got cold in a hurry!).    It turned into a long night with tests being run and more fluid being pumped in.  The doctors said she had nutrepenac (sp) fever.  Which I think means she got so dehydrated that her body kicked her into a fever.  They gave her antibiotics and fluids all night. 

We finally got out of there about 3pm on the 27th.  She was weak, but ready to get home.  It’s funny how fast it turned around after that.  By the 29th she said it was the first day she felt normal!  The rest of the next week she felt pretty good, still made a couple of trips down to MD for blood work, but all in all….she felt really good!

Yesterday day she said the wind blowing her hair hurt her scalp, so we wondered if this was a pre-cursor to her hair falling out?  Guess we will know as soon!

I have been told by a couple of people that she will start to feel better just in time to get another treatment.  Looks like that is hold true, she is feeling pretty good the last few days and she goes for another treatment on the 16th.

We still covet your prayers for her!  We trust God to do His thing, we just have to follow the path laid out before us….

2 Samuel 7:28
Sovereign Lord, you are God!  Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.
