Looking Better

Rachael started the day out being sick and ended feeling much better.  Earlier today she was given erythromycin to stimulate her bowel.  It worked.  She has not had more than a few spoon fulls of food for 10 days but the results this evening were much more than that.
Sorry if it is a bit disturbing but 'round here'  poopin' is a matter of life and cause for celebration!  

She was much more alert today and more vocal in her responses.  She is back to saying several words in a series and looks much better.  Nutrition is coming from a PIC line and dinner is in a drip bag.

She is still battling C-Diff and was taken off all drugs with the exception of an anti-nausea agent and Eryhromycin.  Yet, it looks like her body might fighting back as some symptoms appear to be on the decline.

We are exhausted and appreciate all your prayers, keep them up!

Glad your feeling better. Praying for continued healing. Prayers also for the family.

Irish Prayer

May the road rise to meet you. May the winds be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields and until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
