Last 4 days

These last few days Andrea's kidneys have been responding well to dialysis. However, her lungs are still on a roller coaster of looking better one day and relapsing the next. Tomorrow (Monday) the doctor plans to put a tube in her lower tummy to feed her until the swallowing reflex gets stronger again. Even though she is weak, she insists on physical therapy. That's our Andrea......go for it! We appreciate your prayers so much, especially for the lungs to clear and become strong again.

Dear Andrea -- keep up the good, hard work. I pray daily that you will go home soon and that your kidneys and lungs will be healthy. Keep fighting with all of your might (which is huge) and heart. I know it gets tiring sometimes, but just keep on healing and getting better. My heart and prayers are with you.

Love, Carolyn

We were thrilled this afternoon to get a phone call and have a great visit. Andrea, we are amazed at your "grit"!! You go, girl!!! We are so glad to hear good news and very prayerful about needs that crop up every once in awhile. Kathy it was great to hear from you. Please call again!! And, take care of Tito! I am interested in the book that is in the works. I will check out some things here and get back to you. Hugs, more hugs, and prayers, prayers!! Love you all! Gay & Doug
