March 17, 2008, Danni Sees the Doctor

Danni will be going home this afternoon. The doctor says that the leakage is most likely connected with the chemo wafers. He suggested that we hold off on radiation for the next couple of days and that we keep her head elevated all the time.

Hopefully, we'll be getting a hospital bed for her to help with the elevation process. Originally the ER doctor thought that there was a bubble of air at the top of Danni's head (on the inside) but her neurosurgeon assured us that it wasn't a bubble of air but a chemo wafer.

For now the leaking has stopped and all is well. We have to wait to hear from the chemo Dr. and the radiology Dr. and a social worker to help with the bed situation then we can come home. I am also waiting on the blood count they did this morning to see how the prayers for the platelets turned out! Thanks again for all your wonderful prayers! God's richest blessings to all of you.

I know it has been in eternity since we have been in contact, but I have been reading your blog from the beginning and wanted you to know that you have been on my heart and in my prayers. What a terrible, trying time for you, but I have to say what awesome joy it brought me to read your blog and see how Christ has worked in your life! I am so happy that you know of His power and live your life for Him! Funny how we change when we grow up, huh? I just wanted you to know that I have been praying for you and Danni and I know that with your faith and with God by your side, you will get through this! I miss you and love you.
Your sister in Christ,

Juli Woodworth

We love you and we are praying, praying, praying for you. We know God will give you both the strength to carry on. He is a God of Blessings and Mercy. Philippians 4:13 says it best, " I can do ALL THINGS through Christ Jesus who give me Strength." Praise the Lord !! Tell Grandma Cheryl We love her too.

I just checked for yesterday and today's writings and had to leave you a message. Imagine my surprise when the first message I read was from Juli. I can't even imagine what you are going thru but know that we are praying and praying again. We love you and all you have become. You are an inspiration to all of us who read what you write. Danni, you are on my heart and my mind most of the time and I just pray for your complete recovery.

I have been keeping up on you daily.I could relate to you so much a couple days ago.I have been in your situation a few times with my husband not knowing what the outcome would be.At those times it was so hard for me to focus to pray.Yet I could feel God right there all the time,sometimes I just felt myself crawling in his lap and he just held me,just like I used to crawl on my Dads lap at home.Such security is hard to explain.
That is when all the prayers of friends and family were felt so much.And also when we can't pray the Holy Spirit will intercede for us.
(In the same way,the Spirit helps us in our weakness.We do not know what we ought to pray for,but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.Romans 8:26)
You are in my Prayers,
A friend in Christ
