I'm glad to report that Katie is doing great. She is back from recovery and has been in her normal room for most of the afternoon. She still does have pain and is tired which is to be expected. She seems to be in great spirits and has her sense of humor back. The doctors are not exactly sure what happened. The only thing they think is that she was not getting enough fluid. This may be a result of her being on PD dialysis which can absorb some of the fluid before it can get to wherever it is suppose to go. (I am definitely not a doctor) Since the surgery she is back to being a urine making machine. I have never in my life been so glad to look at pee:)
Needless to say it has been a roller coaster of a day. I decided to sleep at the hotel last night b/c I didn't sleep well in the chair the night before. I was woke up at 6:00 with a phone call. I didn't get it in time and it went to voice mail. I quickly answered and it was Katie saying that she hoped that I was on my way because she was going to the OR soon. (Wost phone call that I have ever received) I couldn't call back to the number so I got dressed and ran to the hospital. And the rest is history.
Mindy is recovering nicely and is expected to get out of the hospital sometime tomorrow.
God definitely is at work in some mysterious ways, but his presence has definitely been felt through this whole ordeal. Please continue to be prayer warriors. I know that the devil has tried his best to break us but we will not be moved!!!! GLORY BE TO GOD!!!!!
