Here are the last two updates from Courtney : ) We please still pray for her infection and for her fever to STAY AWAY!!! love to you all.. thank you for being so faithful to pray : )
Update #1- 6 hrs ago--
Oh man. So the infection she has is not what they thought. It's a more aggressive Staff. The following needs to happen: a blood transfusion, draw blood cultures, continue antibiotics and oxygen. If the infection isn't under control in a couple days then she will have surgery to remove the line. Then will be given antibiotics through an IV for 3 days and then will have another surgery to put in a new line.
I'm so not okay with this. Begging God for an intervention and the ability to have peace and good attitude.
Update #2- 3 hrs ago--
UPDATE: Praise GOD!! Medicaid approved Shannon's transplant. HemOnc is ordering her cord blood which takes 3 days if it's international and 1 day within the U.S. Also...Shannon has not had a fever for over 6 hours now. I am believing our Lord that these antibiotics are working and that she will not need surgery to remove the line.
Prayer Request: That Shannon continues to respond to the antibiotics and that Lord's will be done. We ask the Lord for Shannon to be in chemo and ready for transplant by my birthday. That would be the best present on Earth.
love this verse!!
Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up speedily;
your righteousness shall go before you;
the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
(Isaiah 58:8 ESV)
