Every Little Victory

KK had a good day today.  She was up for a few hours this morning doing very well.  She met with the Physical Therapist once, but did the exercises over and over for every doctor and nurse that came in the room.  She took a little snooze, then woke up a bit groggy just to eat lunch (unfortunately, not the cheeseburger she wanted...just clears).  After lunch, she took a long nap.  When she woke up, she had a great afternoon/evening eating, drinking, talking, and simply impressing everyone.

The doctors are very pleased with her progress.  The external shunt had a clog in it this afternoon.  Dr. Dustin was able to flush it out.  I'm so grateful they externalized the shunt!

I will meet with the oncology team tomorrow to discuss details of the clinical trial.  Surgery to remove more of "Charlie" and start the adenoviral vector trial is scheduled for first thing Tuesday morning.

I am praising God for every little victory!  Thank you for praying!

Thank you, God, for clearing Charlie right out of KK's system. Give her and Tanya the strength they need in this journey that is no surprise to you.

Rejoicing with you for these little victories! And praise the Lord that the shunt is externalized and easier to unclog!
Praying for you continually as you move forward - for wisdom as the decisions to be made are presented, for strength and rest and continued peace as you trust Him! Love you both!

Charlie, it's your time to go. You've done your job. Our eyes are fully on God, we also realize even more than we already knew how very precious, loved, special, and adored our Tanya and KK are to us all. So you're job is done. It's time for you to GO! In the name of Jesus we command you to supernaturally leave KKs body and leave no remnants of your presence behind. we won't need any reminders of your unwelcome stay, our hearts are forever changed and may Christ cast you out as he cast out the demons into the herd of pigs: with ONE word - GO! (Mt. 8:31-34)
