Another wonderful day 1-7-06

Yesterday was another wonderful day for Andrea. Her temp came down to some degree (99-100.6) and didn't go higher all day. The liver and kidneys numbers came down again and her breathing continues to improve. It really looks like the new antibiotics they are giving her are lowering her temp. The eye specialist came by yesterday and said that her eyes still had blood floating around that prevents her from seeing. He said that the blood should drain out over time and if that doesn't occur (let's pray it does) there are procedures to remove the fluid. Andrea has been really scared that she is blind and this helped clear some things up for her. The spots on her hand and arm continue to look better.

Andrea got out of bed again and sat in a recliner for 3 hours and had no problems. She also did exercises while she was in the chair. Yesterday was a wonderful day for Andrea and we look forward to continued improvement. Let's pray for all of this to continue and for God to be there with her the whole way holding her hand. She is so strong and has already made true believers out of all the doctor, nurses, me, and her family and friends.

I don't know Andrea, but found out about her situation from Suzy Adams (I help her in the nursery at West Houston). I have been praying for her everyday, and it is heart warming to read all of the progress that Andrea is making. We will continue the prayers! Andrea~Keep amazing the doctors and nurses with your optimism, strength, courage and determination. For through you they are seeing that All things are possible through HIM.

It is fabulous to hear how well Andrea is doing. As a nurse I firmly believe that a supportive family and God are more important than modern medicine. I believe in miracles and I believe that God is holding Andrea in his hand. His will be done!
To Bob and Kathy, as parents, Kevin and I feel your emotions as our own and continue to pray and believe.
We love you.
Kevin and Mary Frances
