One More Diversion

Andrea cannot have the spinal tap this month because her kidney function numbers are not in the normal range and her blood pressure has been a bit high. She feels good, but it is one of those silent obstacles that can be picked up from drawing the blood and monitoring the blood pressure. Her main doctor is setting up an appointment with a kidney specialist so he may have added suggestions other than taking her off as many drugs as they can.
We really appreciate your prayers.

Dear Andrea,

You are in my prayers daily. I hope that this little "diversion" will be short lived and you can continue with your treatment. God Bless You.

Love,
Alice and Art

Dear Andrea (and family),

I heard about your struggle with AML through a friend in my program at UTSW Med Center, and she gave me the link to your blog. I wanted to let you know my family and I have you in our prayers, and will for as long as you need them. My mom, Linda, also fought the disease, and through prayer was able to overcome. Unfortunately, the road is not as easy as just "getting better", as I'm sure you know. It's the little battles you have to fight everyday that can be a true test of your faith and strength. God does not expect you or your family to go through this alone. He is with you, along with friends, family, and maybe a few people like me and my mom who you've never even met! Please, if you ever feel you'd like to talk with someone who's experienced what you're going through, my mom would love to just talk with you. She understands how meaningful it can be just to know that someone else understands what you're experiencing. Please don't feel like you're under any obligation to call, I know that you're living a very busy life as it is. However, sometimes the most comforting thing is just to have someone to relate to, someone to give you hope and reinforce your faith. The invitation is always open, both to you and your family. :)

God Bless!
Elyse

PS - I've attached my mom's contact info, and she knows that you might be calling!

Andrea, I know I haven't posted in a while but know you have been in mine and my wifes prayers. I continue to raise you up to our Heavenly Father and ask him to heal you. Know that I will NOT stop until you are completely healed.

God Bless!

Your Brother in Christ!
