MDA day 34

I'm sorry it's taken me a week to get back to this blog, but we have been working real hard with Andrea. I had a bad feeling when Andrea was bleeding from the dialysis catheter insertion. She also had too much fluid removed in dialysis that same day and it caused her blood to desaturate (not enough oxygen in the blood). She had taken 5 steps forward in recovery, then with this desaturation, she took 10 steps back. Her goal is get out of the hospital and it is not happening as quick as we would like for it to. Please continue to pray for the neurological issues to clear.

Kathy, thanks for the update! Last night at church I had at least 50 people praying for Andrea's condition. Like everyone concerned, I want her out of the hospital!!!

Trust in him AT ALL TIMES, O people ; pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. Psalms 62:80

Your Brother is Christ!

Hi Kathy,

This must be so frustrating. We're praying for you all and hope Andrea will be out of the hospital soon.

Thank you so much for the updates. It is so kind of you to keep everyone informed with all that you have going on everyday.


I know that you have had more than your share of setbacks with your healing, but I think that you are one of those few special people that can conquer anything, and you will. You have so many people that love you and are praying for you. Just keep working toward your goal of getting out of there soon and please let me know if I can do anything for you.

Love you,

Michelle Meyer

P.S. Can you believe that in just a couple of weeks you will be 28!! It seems like just yesterday we were in college:(

Great to talk with you today and get up to date info. Andrea: You are the greatest fighter!! I wish you had a trophy for all the battles you have won--then this setback would not seem too big to conquer. Your trophy case would be full!! We are rooting for you--but better still, we are praying for you, that God will give you peace, strength, comfort, and encouragement. We love you all!! Gay & Doug
