9:15 AM Tuesday

I talked to Jason a little bit ago and Katie seems to be doing about the same. She is resting right now.

She did say for the first time today that her head pain is not a 10 out of 10 but a little better. She didn't give a number.

Some things to pray about today:

- She will be getting a PICC line today. Pray that this goes smoothly.
- She will also be getting another MRI today. She had a panic attack last time she had one (last Friday) and she is already worried about this one. Please pray for peace.
- She will also be getting an 8 hour EEG to monitor her brain for seizures. Obviously she will not like having all of that stuck to her head.
- Also, if she does not start eating today they will have to put a feeding tube through her nose. Please pray that they will not have to do this and she will want to eat.

Thank you! I'll update again once I know something more.

Thank you Shannon for being so kind and taking time out to update all of us. I know this must be so hard on all of you. Please know that she is in my thoughts and prayers through my day. I keep my husband up to date as well. He is a great prayer warrior indeed!
A few years back we went through this with my oldest son Jesse. It is no walk in the park and very scary!! WE were leaving on vacation that very same morning and ended up in the hospital. He still talks about the bad headaches and wishes that pain on no one. For him to remember it must have been bad. After a week of touch and go it started to ease so I do pray that she is on her way .....eat Katie...eat!

Katie said...

Goodness, bless her heart. I'm thankful her pain is a little bit better. I prayed for her throughout the night last night and will keep praying today, especially for all the points you mentioned. She is such a pretty girl, maybe she will start a new fashion trend with the EEG cap! ;o) Lots of love and prayers to her and all of y'all's family!

Oh Shannon, I am just learning about all of this. I am so sorry and will pray that she will feel better soon. I am sure this is so scary for all of you. I just lost my step father unexpectedly last week and have been out of town. Please keep updating us on Katie and Reese's progress. Sending big hugs your way!

I can't remember where I ran across your blog but I have been following it for several weeks now. I rarely leave comments. Yet in these situations it's always important to stand together as Christians and help carry each other's burdens. Our family will pray for yours every day until this crisis is over.
