Friday Night

Today was a day of waiting. After all of the reports we received yesterday, today was spent watching and waiting for Mom to get better. We saw improvements this morning in her energy, appetite, and mood. She was able to get her hair washed, put on a little bit of make-up, and she even chuckled a time or two.

The doctors are still working very hard to kill the infection in her belly, as this is going to be a very slow process. The reports today were encouraging, but we still seem to have some questions to be answered about the origin and reason for all of these extra complications - we continue to pray that the extra complications are over. We are beginning to hear some mention of treatment/therapy at home, so that has been very encouraging to us.

Mom was very tired this evening as we were leaving. She is still not up to having visitors. We are hoping she can get some good rest tonight, as it will help her continue to heal.

She will have a CT scan in the next few days to give the doctors some more information. This will help them analyze progress and determine needed treatment. She is NOT happy about having this test done, since it was very hard on her body having to drink the liquid that is required for it. But Dr. Martin is trying to work out a way to make this test easier on her. We continue to be so very grateful for Dr. Martin.

Thank you for your prayers, scriptures, calls, comments, emails, facebook messages, cards, and other expressions of your love. They have all been uplifting to her and to all of us.

Kelly (for all of us)

Hi Kelly. I found a link to your blog through Clarissa's. We've been praying for your Mom. But now that I've read more details in the story I have a suggestion. Modern medicine is wonderful, but I believe God put resources on the earth for us to use to heal ourselves. Helena Goodyear is familiar with using alternative medicine to aide in healing alongside modern medicine. If you are interested in trying some things in combination with what the doctors are doing with your Mom now, you can contact her. I am certain that Thieves oil would have healing properties in helping kill the infection. There is also an oil protocol to make sure the scar tissue doesn't return.
Just thought this might be useful info for ya'll!

Kelly, you are a gifted writer! Thanks for your updates. It was with much joy and thanksgiving that we read your afternoon update that the ng tube was removed. I pray your mom only continues to improve from here.

Sharon, you are such an example to us. Thank you for encouraging us by your example as you go through this horrible ordeal. I want to share some Scriptures that are special to me:

Isa. 30:15: "If you will be calm and trust me, you will be strong."

Psalm 50:15: "Trust me in your times of trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory."

Isa. 46:3b-4a: "I have cared for you from the time you were born; I am your God and will take care of you until you are old and your hair is gray. I made you and will care for you."

God always keeps His promises. We love you and keep you in our prayers.
