Good morning to all of Jesse's friends and family,
The blisters in Jesse's mouth have now split and opened. They are draining a lot so she has to spit frequently. They are surprisingly not as sore as before they opened but they are still very sore. Jesse's elbow is healing (although it doesn't look very good). She is suffering from extreme pain in the right rib cage area. We thought it might be gas but now the doctor is saying that it is her Liver that is starting to malfunction. They have added something to her TPN to help but it hasn't stopped the pain yet. It bends her over in pain and makes her cry (so you know how I feel about that). HER anc IS STILL O. She is still running a fever and last night, when she took her Tylenol, threw up so hard one came back up. Still throwing up blood. The swelling in her lips have gone down and she is starting to look like the original model. She got Platelets last night and Myralax to make her go to the bathroom more so she doesn't retain water (so she went several times instead of sleeping). She doesn't have much to smile about but she tells me with just a look, and a hug, that she loves me. She still says thanks to me and the nurses every time someone helps her. What a sweet heart.
I finally got tired of living in extreme pain and Dee set me up with a doctors appointment for an MRI Wednesday (after six months of listening to my whining). Come to find out I have Tendinitis in my Rotator Cup and torn cartilage that holds my shoulder in the socket (oh. That's why it's been popping out). I have to go see a Orthopedic surgeon to see if I will be having to beat Mark Rieger left handed in horse from now on. It still is nothing compared to what I see my baby going through so I haven't wanted to address this. I am having trouble tucking my shirt in, and Dee is not around to help an old man out, so it's time to do something.
Even with the lack of sleep Wednesday night at the Hospital the kick-off meeting for my new job went well. It is remodeling TWO Elementary Schools (new carpet, grid and tile, paint, cabinets and plumbing fixtures, and more) that starts June 1st and needs to be done July 10. That's right. 40 days. Looks like I will be wondering around in circles for 40 days and nights (puts me in there with Bible stories that happened for 40 days and night. Cool). I have been praying for a miracle for Jesse and now I have to add this on my list. They say that we can work extended hours and weekends to get it done. I'll say. This is just adding on to the stress and load that I carry each day worrying about Jesse's health. But the bright side is I still have a job.
Please keep our family in your prayers. It's hard to describe what this trial with Jesse, and everything else we are dealing with, is doing to the family structure the Catrons once had.
Thanks again for the responses. Jesse likes to hear what people are saying.
Have a great day
