Day 6 of Recovery ANC 0

Hello everybody,

Well today is just another day of complete pain and agony for Jess. Last night Jesse vomited so much blood, it was a very unusual amount. The doctors though just said that because her sores are starting to bleed, the blood then runs down her throat into her stomach. Of course, shes going to throw all of that up.

Her pain medication that she controls through the PCA has no affect on her. Her mouth hurts more than ever and now her hands are at a level 10 of pain. The doctors are going to take an x-ray of her hands to see if an infection of some sort has started to form. Before I left the hospital, Jesse just got done having a CT scan to check out her lungs. I pray and hope that nothing serious is wrong with her and that they'll be able to figure what medication is going to help relieve the pain.

Since having our new neighbor, a 17 year old girl whose having her appendix removed, I had a suspicious feeling that she had a cold. I listened closely when I heard her sniff and try to clear her throat. When her boyfriend came to visit he also was coughing. I knew they were both sick so I told the nurse and since they didn't witness any of it, they had to wait and see for themselves to see if they really did have a cold. Well...turns out they did and from what they told me they are currently trying to move her to the 3rd floor.

With all that Jesse is going through, you would think that she could have her own room. Really, the only other patient that can room with Jess is a baby and I don't think that will work either. It's impossible to get any sleep and that's exactly what Jesse needs so that she doesn't feel any pain.


I can only imagine that the rest of this day is going to be a nightmare.

Please pray that the nurses will find and give Jess the right amount of medication that will ease her pain. Pray that the Lord will lay his hands on her and protect her from the sickness that has entered her room. Oh, and also pray that God will relieve me of the cold that I just caught. It's going to be hard on my family now that I'm not able to help out and stay with Jesse for who knows how long.

God bless you all!

Much love,

I know it is so hard, Darling, when you are so sick, and hurt so badly, but stand firm on God's Word and His promises. He WILL see you through this. You hear encouraging words, quotes from the Bible, people saying they are praying; and you are hurting and wondering, "Why, God?" Some times we need to encourage ourselves, by thinking of God's blessings and faithfulness. In 1Samuel 30, it tells about David losing everything he had, and the people were ready to kill him; but David encouraged himself in the Lord. And then he went to the Lord in prayer, asking what he should do, God told him to pursue, overtake, and recover. And with God's help, he did. And with God's help, you will do the same. We have to remember that our circumstances doesn't change God's will, promises, Word, or loving kindness. But dwelling on HIM and His attributes and good plans for us, will change us and how we look at the circumstances.

Rest assured, Jesse and all of the family, if I could, I would gladly carry the sickness and burdens of you all, and delegate all of the blessings to you----but it just doesn't work that way. However, I will continue to talk to our Father about you, and asking for His mercy, grace, strength, favor and presence to surround you, and the blood of Christ to cover you. I will also remind satan that this illness came to pass, not to stay, and he doesn't win a thing but a black eye!

Reaching out and putting my arms and love around you gently.

Dakota, this is for you, too. You are doing a great job--don't be defeated!

Jesse we are praying for you: for the Lord to ease the pain, to cause the sores to heal quickly, to protect you from further complications, to give you favor at the hospital (like a private room), for climbing ANC numbers, and to give you peace and strength to hang in there. Team Catron: We are praying for your strength as well. May the Lord refresh you with His love and demonstrate His power!

"In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me." Psalm 86:7

Love in Christ,
