Something unexpected.

Hannah is being admitted to the hospital. Doctors have done a couple EKG's and want to continuously monitor her heart for more arrhythmia today after collection and overnight. Today her magnesium levels are low. Yesterday her potassium was low. The doctor was surprised I hadn't brought Hannah to the ER last night when she was having so many problems. (So I get to add to my ever growing "Mom Guilt" pile. Yay.) Looks like we may pass Lorelei and Brad in the sky between Houston and OKC when they come down for Lorelei's 7th PET scan and 3rd Brentuximab treatment. Thankfully Hannah had the foresight to arrange for someone to cover her lecture responsibilities at WashU next week. Hannah is being admitted to a pediatric floor. We're excited about the opportunity to be with other pediatric cancer warriors. Maybe that's been God's plan all along - to introduce us to someone else who needs encouragement, someone we might not have met otherwise. We're constantly aware that none of this is about us.

Praying! And praying that God would use you while you're being forced to be admitted!

I understand the balancing act thing with the labs...I'm home with a PICC, a heart monitor, and potassium that's at 2.5...if it's not one thing it's another! But I know somehow God's got good to bring out of this.

I'm encouraged and challenged by the grace and strength with which you all are handling this - and continue to pray God is your sufficiency moment by moment!

Lovely pictures. I think the idea is to see the caegnhs from 4 weeks to 42 weeks. Yes, some look like they are 20 weeks, but really they probably started off looking like that. Nothing to be ashamed about. The whole premise is to show how we are all DIFFERENT.
