How many pills do I take?

Good Morning,

Jesse did not have a very good day yesterday. She threw up about every hour and half. We did find out through a culture that she has C-diff (Clostridium difficile), which is a very contagious bacterial infection which can lead to colitis if not treated. This plays havoc on her bowels, and causes an upset stomach.

Jesse wondered yesterday just how many pills she takes a day. She came up with 25 pills a day. The most Jesse ever took was an occasional Tylenol or vitamin. I think it just overwhelmed her that so many drugs are going into her body.

We are all trying to look forward to our road trip in July. We have plans of driving the California coast up to San Francisco, Up and over to Medford Or (our hometown) back to the Oregon coast to Astoria (grandma's house) over to Portland, Or (rest of the family), Down to Las Vegas and our final destination is the Grand Canyon. This will be a great family time and hopefully relaxing.

Thank you for your prayers and support.

Much Love, Team Catron

We sure hope you can have a more restful and pain free weekend Jesse - you too Clent! That is a LOT of pills to have to take a day, yikes! Your vacation sounds wonderful ~ for sure something fun to look forward to. You certainly deserve it. As always you are all in our thoughts and prayers!

Your 80 degree weather sounds great, it was 16 this morning and we had a couple inches of snow and ice yesterday, I slid through a stop sign on a busy street! Thank God nobody was coming!!!

I love that you all are planning ahead for happier and better times. No words come to me to express how much I wish there was something I could do to help - so I can only imagine how it must be for all of you. You do continue to be an amazing inspiration and example.

I was sent this link recently by a very good friend and urge you, Jesse, to listen to this lovely lovely rendition of Amazing Grace. What a gift these young men have - sit back and enjoy, turn those speakers up! This is pure beauty in sound (you'll have to do a copy/paste to get it to work):

The Suazos pray daily for you all - you're on the downhill side, still very rugged, but getting there.

WOW!!! 25 pills a day! I hope you guys have alot of fun on your trip! It sounds like fun! :D You guys are so amazing! Everyone of you have so much going on and I LOVE how you guys are all just giving it to God! I had some heart scares the last few months. They thought I needed a heart transplant, and I shut down! I did not talk to anyone for a few days and snaped at anyone around me! You all are dealing with so much more and I thank you! Your whole family are amazing role models!I cannot even begin to imagine what you guys are going through!!!! I really do hope and pray for you all that everything will soon go back to normal!

That family trip sounds wonderful!

25 pills a day??? OMG - that would take me at least an hour to swallow so many. You are a trooper Jesse!

Our prayers continue to be with you!

Which shaped pill do you choose to be shaped like, Jesse? It sounds like you can have your pick!

I was just reading Hebrews chapter 12. There is far to much for me to write; and if I pick just one or two verses, I would probably start sermonizing. Therefore, I suggest you read the chapter yourselves and 'sermonize' to each other. It is very encouraging, uplifting, and challenging.

We are praying and trusting that you all are doing better. I know so well that pain is just NO fun===but then, there is Jesus, and just saying His name over and over, and concentrating on Him, and the pain has to ease up. Nothing can stand above the precious name of Jesus. The power in His name over-shadows everything else.

We love you all dearly and praise God for all of His bountiful blessings and care He gives us all.

Wow! What a crazy amount of pills for one day, that is just insane! I am so happy to hear that you are continuing to plan for July. I trust that the Lord will have His perfect timing for July and Jesse will be well enough and healed for then. I am sorry to hear about the C Diff. That is not fun stuff. Thank you Lord for the tests that are made available and the medicine that has been created to discover and take care of such things.

I am looking forward to July as I would love to see you all. We have a four bedroom open and welcoming you all, if you want to.

We are continually praying for Jesse. We love you and miss ya!
