WEDNESDAY NIGHT UPDATE:
First thing this morning had PICC line inserted into upper arm to make giving blood, taking meds, etc. so much easier on me physically and emotionally. If only I had been given that option when I was admitted. Not knowing what to expect, I was concerned but it went so well - less than a few minutes and I left smiling. Praise God. Haven't been tapped all day - what a relief.
Hubby brought me a wonderful breakfast after the procedure, with coffee from home! Then I had 6 visitors in a row - what a shot in the arm -- exhausted afterwards but it did me a world of good. Lots of laughter and group prayer.
Had my third Echocardiogram this afternoon. Will get results tomorrow. Praying for some improvement with fluid on heart.
It has been a busy day but a good day. Emotions better. Posted Scripture verses around my room - and have gotten so many positive comments about them.
My husband has been such a servant, with a gentle patient spirit during this entire time....God has used him (and our relationship) to encourage these precious young nurses. So thankful for him and how God is using this.
I'll most likely be here through the weekend - maybe into next week. Please keep praying for improvement, for the fluid to empty around my heart and for this blood clot in my lung to completely dissolve. I'm not out of the woods yet.
Thanks so much. God is working.
