Jesse's Hot

Well we all know Jesse's beauty would be described as hot, but literally, she is HOT!! She kicked off the evening with 102 fever. For that she gets 3 different antibiotics, Tylenol and an ice bag. This is just part of the course when her ANC reaches 0. Jesse also has mucositis, (throat sores) will last for about 2 weeks. And lastly for desert HHV6 blood virus has increased, so -she is back on 3x a day medication. Oh yes, she also has Leukemia (count still at zero)- that seems to take a back seat to all the other problems that come along with chemotherapy.

Today they will have to change her dressing again, they don't like how it was done last time. Maybe she will be up for a shower, just sit and soak.

It is pretty quiet most of the day, she does not have any procedures scheduled for this round.

Thank you for checking Jesse's blog and whispering a prayer for her.

Much Love.

Team Catron

MAN ITS STARTING AGAIN! just pray she gets through it quicker this time those fevers are no joke! and have a tough time wanting to leave. Jesse is one tough girl she will go through all of this and will not complain! she is a true champ! I do want to thank MR. and MRS. Catron for allowing me to stay those nights, and others that may come with Jesse,Thank you for trusting that I would help watch over her and have no worries. Again thank you! As all of you know,Jesse is one heck of a girl. as her boyfriend she means alot to me and plan to be a part of this journey with the family and Jesse since it all started and continue on after this is over.
When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He'll catch you when you fall, or He'll teach you how to fly! LOVE YOU

Oh my Darling Jesse, how I hurt for you! My throat hurts and I have sores in my mouth, yet I know it is NOTHING to what you are going through. (God allows me to hurt when my loved ones hurt to help me pray more effectively.) I am so glad you know Jesus! We don't know the whys and wherefores of all that goes on in our lives, or why we have to suffer untold miseries, but when we know JESUS, we have everything worthwhile, AND everlasting life.
I opened my Bible, and came to Psalms 56 and 57. King David was having problems. In the 56th chapter, he said: "What time I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God I will praise His work, in God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid of what flesh can do to me."
"You know my wanderings: put my tears into your bottle; are they not in your book? When I cry unto you, then shall my enemies (pain & illness?) turn back: THIS I KNOW, FOR GOD IS FOR ME. In God will I praise His word; in the Lord will I praise His word. In God have I put my trust; I will not be afraid what man (pain & illness?)can do to me." 57:1,2 "Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusts in you; yes, in the shadow of your wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be over and past. I will cry unto God most high, unto God that performs all things for me."

There is so much more, but maybe someone can read them to you, as it would take up too much space for me to write it down. I just want you to know that Grandpa and I love you, are so thankful you are our granddaughter, and are continually praying for you and praising God for you!

Matt, you are truly a special young man - this family does attract the best! My prayers continue for you all to get through this - everyone feels for Jesse with Jesse taking the brunt of it all and yet leading the way for everyone . . . being so brave and strong.
