Hospital Stay

Jen was admitted to the hospital early Tuesday morning around 3:00 with GI issues and low cyclosporine levels. She's doing well now - eating some soup, crackers, applesauce, etc. Things that will be gentle on her stomach as it recovers from a rough couple days. One of her doctors offered some encouraging words saying these bumps in the road are to be expected and that the levels will be watched closely so they do not reach a dangerously low or high amount. She's hanging in there albeit a tad discouraged after getting such a positive report at her clinic visit on Monday and then being back in the hospital within 24 hours. The hope is she'll get to head home tomorrow.

She is asking for prayer for the cyclosprine to stay at a consistently safe level and that her other blood counts will reach desired levels. She's also asking for prayer that her body will continue to be receptive to the transplant and not reject it as this is still a possibility. Please pray that she will get to enjoy more time at home with no more hospital stays. Also, please pray for the Lord to continue to guide the doctors, nurses, and other caregivers and for Him to encourage Jennifer and draw Him closer to Himself with each passing day. Oh that He will be glorified, high and lifted up. He is most deserving of all our praise. May this journey be stamped with: TO GOD BE THE GLORY.
