Fevers

I spent the early morning hours with a temp around 104-105, feeling really miserable. They aren't sure yet why I'm running fevers, as usual. So far everything is coming back negative so they are switching some antibiotics around today and will continue to manage things in the meantime. (I haven't had a fever since this morning.) They also installed a pain pump yesterday to help with the mucositis. It has been spreading throughout my mouth today. I was just having throat pain.

Thank you for all of your prayers. These are the scary days, when my immune system is non existent and my body is fighting to survive. Please pray that the fevers remain within our control (so far Tylenol has been doing a good job) and that if there is a source to identify, we can find it. It would be nice to get off some of these "big gun" antibiotics as they come with their own list of side effects.

Amy,
Thank you for the updates. I know how scary it can be to have symptoms but not know why. I will pray that the cause of the fevers will be found and that you will be better in no time!

Hey kiddo. You never make it sound this bad when we talk. You and Brandon and Gary are in my thoughts. I hope that you'll start having an easier go of it.
Take good care of yourself (Brandon you take care of her too).

"Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10) ~ my all time favorite verse for it sums it all up ~ for in the midst of the storms of life, we must stand steadfast, be focused on the face of Father God and 'be still'... for only then shall we become one with His 'words'... sending angel hugs from the Great Land of Alaska

Amy,

I am sorry you have been feeling so badly. I am praying for you.

Joy in affliction is rooted in the hope of resurrection, but our experience of suffering also deepens the root of that hope.

I pray that you would feel the mighty arms of the Lord around you as you travel this journey. And that you would hear the prayers of so many being lifted up to the Lord on your behalf. We pray and believe that, with God's help, you can do this!!! God bless you, Amy!

I arise today through the strength of heaven; Light of the sun, splendor of fire, swiftness of wind, depth of the sea, stability of earth, firmness of rock. I arise today through God's strength to pilot me; God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, God's hand to guard me. Afar and anear, alone or in a multitude. Christ shield me today against wounding: Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in me. I arise today through the mighty strenth of the Lord of Creation.

"When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, thy consolations delight my soul." Psalm 94:19

"I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes wait for the Lord."
Psalm 27:13-14

Praying for you.
