Kate wanted me to post a few additional prayer requests this evening. First, that the pain behind her right eye would subside without the need for heavy pain killers. She was having a very painful episode before dinner (pain rating 7 out of 10) and had to take a vicodin. It helped and she took another one before bedtime to help her sleep. Kate doesn't like to take narcotics because they make her tired and loopy. She would prefer to manage the pain with Tylenol alone especially with a daily therapy regimen where she needs to be alert and fully engaged.
Next, Kate requests that she has "Joe" moments here at the rehabiliation center. For those of you following our blog for a while or have read the archives (Dec 06, Jan 06, Feb 06) will know what she is talking about.
Finally, please pray for my back as it has been getting quite a workout over the past few days helping Kate in and out of bed and her wheelchair. I am prone to back pain and it is starting to get a little sore. Hopefully, a trip to my chiropractor tomorrow will help.
Have a great night!
