As of 11:30 this morning, Katie is stable. She is not worse but really not any better either. Not really any change. Her brain swelling has not seemed to have gone down because she is still describing her pain as a 10 out of 10. They finally gave her some morphine to help with the pain so she could sleep. She woke up wanting Jello so that is great news. That is the first time she has been able to eat since Thursday. She seems to be re-gaining some movement in her arm (able to lift it up) but her hand is still numb and she has no control over her hand. Her doctors have said this is really rare and they only see about one pregnant women with encephalitis a year. They have not gotten any lab results back to determine what they are treating yet. They are hoping to get some back either today or tomorrow. Some will be back in a week and some will take a month or longer.
The OB doctor has been monitoring Baby Reese's heartbeat and said it is normal. This is a praise!
Please pray that they will get the lab results very soon, so they will know exactly what they are treating and that the extreme head pain can be relieved.
Cody and I are in LR at my parent's house with Zach. Zach is doing great just playing around and loving being with his Gran and G-Daddy.
Thank you for praying!
