Please Pray (Day +17)

Yesterday Andrea continued to have a fever which finally broke this morning around 10am. Then she slowly developed another high fever today and the doctors have become concerned. They think that the bone marrow is grafting well but are trying to figure out what is causing these fevers. Here white blood cell count was 9.0 today and she did need platelets this morning. Today the doctors looked a current x-ray of Andrea chest and saw that there was some cloudiness in her left lung at the bottom. This is same lung that she had trouble with a St. Lukes.

Just a few hours ago they did a procedure to get a sample of this fluid and will running test to determine how to treat it. Currently she is not having any trouble breathing, but the doctors are trying to make the determination if she has pneumonia or not. Hopefully we got on this early enough that she will sail right through this and we can get her out of the hospital on the road to recovery. We should have results from the skin biopsy they did yesterday and the lung procedure they did tonight sometime next week. Please take time to pray for her especially tonight. Today she was really burning up with that fever so ask the lord to help her break this fever and comfort her in this time of need. God Bless and Good Night.

I'm so very sorry for it to have been so long since I have posted. We have been going non-stop the past few weeks. The last weeks of school are the toughest. Luke has started playing baseball at the park and even though he is my son he is very good. He has hit many homeruns. He makes his dad and I very proud.

I hope to see you guys soon and tell Andrea we are praying daily. Reading your past entries brings back so many memories but just remember look at Bobby now and know God can still heal!!!!!

Hey Dre & J,

You guys are doing an amazing job letting faith lead you down the path to health. I'm sure the continuous prayers will put an end to the fevers soon. Dre, I miss you, love you and can't wait to visit with you again. Stay strong-the light at the end of this tunnel gets brighter every day.

Lots of love,
Shanna & Scott
