Home on the Range

Three & 1 @ Hospital
Mireya was discharged from the hosptial this weekend.  The bacteria growing on her culture was identified as a type of influenza that has not been commonly seen in about five to ten years.  We were sent home with a heavy hitting antibiotic that will have to be administered via her line for the next ten days.  Mireya's counts are borderline for platelets and a blood transfusion, but the decision was made to wait and see what her body is able to do before our appointment this week.  If anything changes with her physically we'll need to come back to the hospital before our scheduled appointment.  It was a long week, but we are happy to be home recuperating.

We will likely revisit discussions of repeating the transplant via the boost. We're still believing God to avoid having to go that route.  We all recognize her body is fighting this sudden illness and as a result her counts are all over the place.  Continue to lift us up, we're praying for swift recovery and increased counts.  Even in the midst of the madness, God is present and working it out.

Deuteronomy 3:16  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
