Jan 29th – update

Today was a rather quiet day. Kent’s vital signs remain held in normal ranges by medicines.  He now has a lot of edema (fluid in his soft tissues that makes his hands, feet, arms, and legs very puffy). His trach was replaced with a little longer one because the first one had a leak around it.  He just slept and we held his hands. We should be starting to get an idea in the next day or two if the steroids are going to bring the airways inflammation down.

So, again, we wait. I told myself all day today that I was going to rest rather than wait. I must have taken myself too seriously, because at one point I literally got a warm blanket from the nurses, leaned back in a recliner, and went to sleep! Our children and I have tried very hard to take care of ourselves by sleeping every night and eating correctly. We are tired anyway, just from the emotions of it all, but we are trying. Keep praying for our family’s general health. We have had 5 of our 8 grandchildren sick with ear infections and flu this week, and Kenda had a sick day as well. It is hard to do life, keep healthy, and have a loved one in ICU. We need to be strong for each other, and we have a few weak links right now. So we all need your prayers in this direction.

Thank you again for all you do. Prayer is hard work, and you have been working very hard for us! We love all of you, Davidene and family
