Quick update

The docs drained Natalie’s abcess today during a C/T procedure and left in a drainage tube and bag. She had an abcess the size of a golf ball near the site of her Crohn’s inflammation. Game plan is to get the abcess dealt with through the procedure today and antibiotics, then figure out what to do about the inflammation that is not responding to steroids.

She’s in good spirits – Mom’s coming down tomorrow to visit and bring her some movies.

Kevin and Dad will put in a new water heater tomorrow and then Kevin and the boys will come down and visit us on Wednesday. As of now, looks like we will be at the hospital till Thursday or Friday. Thanks for all the comments and good thoughts and prayers – I’ll keep you updated.

    My prayers are with you and your family.

    It has been my experience that when something goes wrong, it is never just one thing. Why that happens I don’t know, but it is uncanny that it does – it is as if we are continually being tested.
