On the Road

It appears that Kate may be on the road to recovery....Andy and I just arrived back at the hospital and she had a much better night for Nana. She has been keeping her med down and most of her fluids. Right now..she is doing a 1/2 & 1/2 mixture of milk and pedialtye. She has been awake more and is more aware of the nurses...she has got her evil eye back when they come in the room....that is a good sign.

So...now we wait to get a word from the intensivists and cardiologists to see if they think she is stable enough to stay here. The general consensus from nurses, Nanas and mommies is that she has the flu. Ideally, the flu shot is not supposed to give you the flu...but in Kate's case when she is weak and her heart and immune system is compromised...her little fragile body may not have been able to fight it off. I will ask the doctors what they think today...but hopefully...that is the case and a few more days she will be home!

Thanks for all your continued prayers and support...we will be in touch when we know more!

Krista & Andy,
I remember when Jeff got some shots in Iowa when he was a baby - he came home and just cried and cried.
When he got his measles shot
he got the measles! Some kids take these shots
seriously! Hopfully, Kate
will be better now. Praise
the Lord.
Love, Judy & CHarlie

Hi Krista, sooo glad to hear that Kate is doing better this morning!

I talked to your Mom last night and I told her that I would be available to you on Fridays. I'll try to keep all Fridays open just for you, Seth, Kate, and Andy.

My prayers continue for all of you especially Kate. Linda

I'm glad to hear better news this morning. I was reading this and thought of you.

Hebrews 3:17-18
"For this reason, he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted".

I was encouraged - Christ was like us in every way - sad, sick, frustrated, tired, and on and on. This in & out of the hospital thing stinks - and thank goodness that there is ONE who truly knows how it feels.
