Her temp was 101.5--marginally higher than yesterday. Temps generally tend to climb as the day progressess, so the fact that it was higher than her afternoon temp yesterday was not good. Her swelling is about the same as Sunday. Maybe just slightly better? It's hard to tell.
Her Dr. did not feel like he had seen any improvement from yesterday to today, and sent her for more lab work to be done, hoping to have it done before his 3:00 pm phone appointment with Dr. Carson.
Even though he labeled the lab orders "STAT Before 3:00 pm." the staff at the child lab did NOT tell us until AFTER they drew the blood that the earliest they would have the results back would be 6:00 pm tonight AFTER the Drs office is closed.
I put a phone call in to Katya's Dr. to let him know that. I am unhappy about the situation, but trusting that God has all of this firmly in His control, and that He knows exactly what is going on and what needs to be done.
Since both Katya's family Doctor and Dr. Carson are believers and pray to God, I am asking that any of my blog readers who pray will join me in praying that God gives them both wisdom that can only come from Him. God can speak clarity into their heads that will enable them to make the correct decisions for Katya WITHOUT the lab work results.
Knowing this gives me peace, even in a crazy situation.
All our thanks to those who have been praying for our Katya . . . We appreciate it so much. Some of you have told us that you are sharing her story and asking others to pray, and we appreciate that too!
