God Has a Different Plan

Just wanted to update my last post.

Sadly, Kathryn’s fever has continued to climb. The pain team just pulled her epidural. The next 24-48 hours will be more complicated now. But we will get through them. They have agreed to add Toradol to her IV, along with IV Tylenol. Now that we are almost 24 hours past her surgery, we just might be able to get her through with those, and avoid having to add any mind-fuzzing narcotics. That is what we are praying for now.

As far as the fever, they are now thinking that it’s the UTI that showed up in her urinalysis the night before surgery. The culture for that came back today and showed quite a bit of growth. They will be changing one of her antibiotics to Cipro again. I hate that drug, but sometimes you have to just do what you have to do. When Plans A and B fall through, you go on to Plan C. One step at a time.

PT came by again and had her do some actual sitting on the side of bed, and although that was miserable for her while she’s feeling so bad, she was such a trooper and worked really, really hard. She’s such a strong girl, but so very sick. She is now so sick that she doesn’t even want her music or to hold any of her animals or dolls. The only thing that seems to bring her any comfort is to hold onto our hands.

Thank you so much for praying for her and for us. She is sleeping pretty peacefully at the moment while squeezing my fingers (making typing a little tough), and we are so thankful for that.
