Yesterday, we posted about the nurses having trouble with Elena's line. This afternoon, we found out that the BMT team wants Elena to have a procedure tomorrow to figure out what is going on with her central line. Not exactly what we want to be doing during our "Five Fabulous Days" before Elena goes into the hospital on the 16th!!
We know we need to figure out what is causing Elena's line to be blocked, but hearing the unexpected news that you have to go to the hospital AGAIN for ANOTHER medical procedure is NO FUN!
The plan is to sign in at Scottish Rite tomorrow at 10 am - once registered, we will go to Radiology. They will inject a nuclear medicine into her line and then take pictures of her chest to see what is going on. After that, we will have to go to the clinic for lab work. Yes, more lab work. If Elena's line is not working, they will have to draw labs from her hand or arm again.
Pray that the time at the hospital and clinic will be quick - NO unnecessary waiting.
Pray that the scheduled procedure will clearly show what the problem is.
Pray that the problem can be easily solved.
Pray that the problem will not need any surgical intervention.
Pray that the line will NOT need to be replaced.
Pray that we will find joy and that happiness will fill the day - despite where we are and what we are doing.
Pray that these unexpected turns will not cause us too much anxiety or stress.
Pray that we can completely trust God with all things.
Thank you for praying!
