Close Call but Okay!

The infection in Andrea's lungs is causing her oxygen levels to go down. Her doctor wanted to admit her into MDA from the emergency room, but Andrea convinced him to give her the medicine she needed and send her home because she likes the care she receives at home over the masses of nurses and doctors as in-patient who may have the flu. Her doctor reluctantly agreed, and the pulmonary doctor saw to it that she got an oxygen bottle to use at home should she need it again. So, with new medicine and as-needed oxygen, Andrea is up and trying to get better again. She is also receiving dialysis 3 times a week now which should help clear the lungs.
Your faithful prayers are soooo much appreciated.

Two more days until the nation celebrates Thanksgiving Day. We will celebrate as well--but each note Kathy prints about your progress causes us to have another Thanksgiving Day!! We love seeing you in the picture--showing off your undaunted spirit and great smile. We pray for you daily; God certainly knows your name!! We are thankful for your continued progress, your joyful spirit, and your beauty--inside and out!! David Jerimiah, in his book Captured by Grace, suggests we start each morning when we wake up and list all the things God has blessed us with--and then goes on to suggest we will never finish the list because His gifts are too numerous! How true!!

We pray you will be blessed by the many prayers each day that come your way, that you will rejoice in the day that the Lord has made, and that you will continue to be a blessing to those around you. We look to this site each day to see how we should be praying--and rejoice with you for all your progress.

Enjoy the day--may you have comfort, strength, and joy in your journey. We love you and your family!! Have a great Tanksgiving!! Love you a bunch--Gay & Doug Young

Andrea,

Your life is such an inspiration. You epitomize the words of Winston Churchill, "Never, never, never give up!" It is encouraging to see the news of your progress. Your family is also an inspiration to us. Keep fighting the good fight. We love you!
