Going Well (Day +21)

The afternoon of Day +19, Andrea's fever spike again. Then yesterday (Day +20) she didn't have a fever and today there has been no fever. The cultures from the lung procedure have not grown anything, but Andrea's blood from several days ago did grow some bacteria. Hopefully the antibiotics and fever took care of that and there is none left in her blood. The doctors said that it may take several week for her lungs to clear, but she is having no trouble breathing. Her lungs will not hold her in the hospital unless the cultures finally grow something. The doctors feel that if she continues the way she has for the last two days, she will be going home next week. Let's all pray for this to be the case. God Bless and talk to everyone tomorrow.

Hopefully she will be out of there sooner than expected!

Yea! Great news! Sorry I didn't call last night. I didn't finish volunteering until 8:00 and my feet were numb. I'm looking forward to Andrea getting released from the hospital as I know you are as well. We have good news, too. Clint and I are getting to meet his bone marrow donor this evening. He and his family are coming in from Mississippi on their way to Austin. Gotta run! Praise God for Andrea's continued healing!

Anrea, J and family,

We are thinking about you and praying for Andrea's health and comfort. Hopefully, this part is almost over and you can recuperate at home soon. I know you'll be glad to have new turf and be in the comforts of home. We love you guys....
