More Tests

The MRI showed results of needing more tests that need to be performed. Hopefully, these will take place within the next 2 weeks. In the meantime, Andrea will continue with the rigorous schedule of workouts, therapy and trying her best to heal. She is striving for the next level of improvement because I've noticed lately when people ask how she is she says "Could be better".
We are continuing to pray for each of you daily. Thanks for checking the blog.

Continuing to strive and stuggle

Andrea is a great trooper. She continues to try the best she can to gain strength every day. Dialysis continues Monday, Wednesday, Friday, with MDA Physical Therapy Tuesday, Thursday, MDA Occupational Therapy on Tuesday, and Speech Therapy on Thursday. However, she is still struggling to see improvement. In some areas, I can say she is stronger, but in others, it is difficult. I think the biggest obstacle is the recurring lung infection, which may be brought on by something else. Please pray that the MRI this Tuesday will bring some answers. We appreciate each comment on the blog as they give Andrea hope and encouragement through your prayers. She wishes so much that she can see and visit with each of you. We send our love to you all.

New Year and New Hopes

Andrea had an evaluation from the MD Anderson Rehab department that will focus on strengthening her lung capacity every Tuesday and Thursday. She still has dialysis on Mon, Wed, and Fri, so her work week is just like everyone else's now! Andrea amazes me for her drive and desire each day to get well.
We are wishing all of you a happy new year with goals and hopes of happiness.
p.s. Betty got Zeus and his friends Smokey, Tito and Juliet fun dog toys for Christmas that are so funny and amusing......
