I got to visit Rachael today. At one point Justin, Rod and Cathy (Justin's parents) and my mom and dad (Jay and Andrea) and I were all hanging out. We laughed a lot and were kind of loud. Rachael has perfected laughing without "bearing down" as she puts it. LOL! Anyway-- it was fun. Laughter is good medicine if you can do it safely. (-:
She had a really crampy episode again in the night. If it happens again tonight she will call the nurse to put her on the monitor to see if there are any measurable contractions. Peace Be Still!
Tomorrow she receives her first steroid shot. These shots are painful and can affect your immune system a bit. So we are still wanting to greatly limit visitors for a while. We would not want Rachael exposed to any virus thats floating around right now. Coughing or puking could be a pretty bad scenario for Rachael.
McKenna is healthy so her procedure and MRI are on for tomorrow. I made her a blog and wrote a post about tomorrow. I also posted everything else I've ever written on her condition and put the date it was written in the title. So those of you who have been following and praying for her condition-- check it out!
Jennette will be updating you about Rachael tomorrow and maybe even about McKenna on her new blog.
Thank you so much for your prayers. I cannot express what a comfort it is to know so many of you are praying for Rachael and Jimmie and even McKenna!
