It's been a crazy rollercoaster...

Here's the latest. I'm still very weak, try to use my oxygen whenever I can. It just makes my breathing easier. In minimal pain because I'm staying on my pain med. schedule. I got my stomach tube out today, praise God. I've lost 23 lbs. already since my surgery (per the Dr's scale today). Please pray for strength for me and for Luke's tests today to come back negative for RSV. Nana took him to the Dr. for me and they did chest xrays etc....I'm praying my boy is not sick, he hasn't been feeling well these past few days. Sorry if I still haven't returned your phone call, I just don't have the energy to talk these days. Never thought I'd say that. It takes ALOT out of me to carry on a conversation because of my oxygen issues. Yest. I had to go down the big Baylor and have a doppler on my arm because it was hurting. Sure enough, I have another clot. It is in such a small vein both my Dr's. have said it's nothing to worry about. But it hurts, so please pray for that. I'm starting back with my 81 mg. aspirin a day as per my gastric Dr.'s instruction. That should help with all this clotting business. I wish I had some better news, but this is what our worlds been like for 3 wks now. It can always be worse...I've been worse. I'm trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel and keep things simple and pray for God's healing. Please pray with me. Thanks.

I've been checking everyday to see if you had blogged. I was about to call your in-laws if you hadn't blogged soon! I'm sorry you're having such a rough time! I hope Luke's test were negative! I'm praying for you.

Heather,
Thanks for updating! I was getting worried. I've been checking on you too through your blog and am SO sorry you've had such a terrible time. I'm praying for your complete healing and NO more clots.
