8:45 PM Sunday

My parents just left the hospital and there is not really anything new to report. She appears to be a little weaker, still in a lot of pain but she did eat 1/2 a cup of Jello. They still have not gotten any test results back. The holiday weekend is kind of slowing things down a little. Hopefully we will know something tomorrow.

Her primary doctor is no longer an OB but a neurologist. However, they have listened to Reese's heartbeat four times today and she is still doing good.

Please pray specifically that Katie would get some relief from the pain in her head, to re-gain feeling and control of her right hand, and for the doctors to get the test results back so they can find out what is causing her brain to swell.

Shannon...I have no words. I don't think anyone can quite understand it unless they see it with their own eyes. I can't the picture of her out of my mind. I went by there earlier today and am planning to go by again tomorrow...and every day until she's better. I'm praying! Are you helping take care of the little man? Give him a kiss for me!

Shannon, I am thinking of and praying for Katie. I am praying that God gives the Doctors wisdom to treat this and figure out what is going on. I know she has to be scared with baby Reese but God knows all about it.

Jesus, cover Katie & Reese with Your healing power! Shelter this baby in the palm of Your hand! I bind this illness in Katie's body in Your name and loose Your healing power! By Your stripes, let her be healed! In Jesus' Name!
