Good morning to all of Jesse's friends and family
I know everyone is curious and concerned about how Jesse is doing so I am posting a quick up date. I don't know what all they will do to her today but last night they gave her a room on the second floor, room 208a (one we haven't had yet). They gave her two bags of blood and I don't know when they finally started her TPN. I just know that they couldn't give her the TPN until the blood was finished. I think she will have an ECHO today to check the pressure of her heart valve working. They did a CT scan and EKG while she was in the emergency area (for 6 hours). Those results came back OK.
Jesse's hemoglobin count was dangerously low (those are the blood cells that carry oxygen to the body and brain) and that is what caused her to turn white and nearly die. We don't know (yet) why this would happen or what would keep it from happening again. Dee and I have decided that any time she is at home we will be bringing her in to the Out Patient part of the Hospital to draw blood and check her vitals about every third day just to keep track of where she is. This is the second time we have almost lost her when she is home trying to recover.
I don't want to get into my personal feeling and what this is doing to Dee and I (and our whole family). I will ask that people that pray... to pray for strength for our family (and Jesse's strength). This test (cross) gets heavy to bear at times.
Thanks for all of your prayers and thoughts. Have a great day
