Rough night

Abby had a difficult night last night. C.R. said she vomited about 6 times and now they are concerned about her electrolyte levels. She also has a fierce headache which could be a result of one of the anti nausea medications or a result of all her vomiting. They are giving her morphine to help with the headache. So, she will probably be spending most of today asleep (which Dr. Abella says he prefers over having her awake and vomiting).

They are delaying today's chemo treatment until her electrolytes look better. She was to begin that at 11 am and it will be delayed about 4 hours.

I was comforted this morning by a reminder from the Lord that the angels who were ministering to Abby during her radiation treatment are also with her in the hospital. Please continue to pray that we will feel God's presence. He is our strength.

Book of Life

Today is the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). Jews all over the world pray to God and ask to be inscribed in the Book of Life for one more year. Since my husband is Jewish I spent the day in synagogue with him. But I prayed that Abby would be inscribed in the Book of Light. Hopefully Abby is getting some sleep and will soon be more comfortable.
