Jaynee was able to sleep about half of the night, so she did get some rest. She has a new kind of pain that anybody who has ever had abdominal surgery can understand...trapped air. She can't seem to get it out and it causes great pain.
On the good side, her color has greatly improved after receiving the 3 units of blood, and her blood pressure seems much more stable. If I remember correctly, her blood pressure was about 70 over 40. I don't understand those numbers but maybe some of you do. Thank you so much for the prayers through the night. I've talked to the kids and Hna Tola (the babysitter) and things appear to semi-normal at home... :-) whatever semi- normal is with 12 kids :-). I'll try to keep the blog updated throughout the day on any progress.
A special thank you to my mother in law, Becky Smith, my mom, sister in law Amber Lockwood, and several different pastors who have all been a special encouragement. Also Jaynee's Uncle Ron who made me laugh last night for the first time. Thank you so much to each and every one of you who have prayed, it is so comforting to know so many Christians around the world are praying for my wife. What a blessing!
Oh and yes, she did finally get her pain medicine. Although she still hurts badly, it did take the edge off.
