This morning during Drew’s second plasma treatment the back pain returned full-force. Physical Therapy is coming in today to try some different things. Please pray that they would figure out how to ease the pain. Drew has nine + days left of plasmapheresis- which means he has to stay in bed, not moving. I am praying that the pain wouldn’t continue for the entire plasma-exchange process.
Yesterday Drew & John got into some trouble with the nurse for helping Drew move in his bed to where he was on all fours to relieve the back pain. Today he said, ‘Dad will you help me break the rules again?’- broke our hearts but the answer was no. We aren’t sure when the GBS will start to back off. It’s hard to tell how far it’s already gone. Drew is still breathing mostly on his own, with some treatments here and there.
Because of Drew’s pain, nausea and numbness, he isn’t usually up for talking. But last night God gave us some time together I won’t soon forget. His pain subsided long enough for him to hold my hand and tell me he loves me. I am so thankful for that sweet moment. We are so encouraged by the amount of people praying & following along on this journey via blog. Thank you!
A few people have asked for the hospital address to send cards and what not. That is great :) Click here for contact info.
