Day + 61

This morning, it was back to the Aflac Cancer Center for Elena's outpatient clinic visit. Once again, it was a smooth appointment, no delays and no problems with Elena's counts. Praise God!

Another praise, Elena's potassium levels have risen.  So, she no longer has to take the potassium supplement that was causing her so much trouble.

We left the clinic thinking we would not have to return until Thursday!  Happy happy!
Then, late in the afternoon, we got a phone call from the clinic saying that a virus was detected in Elena's blood work. So....back to the clinic we go tomorrow morning for Elena to receive an IV antiviral medication. This will be about an hour long infusion. We will then give this IV antiviral drug to Elena at the RMH every 12 hours.

Please join us in praying for protection over Elena.
Pray that the virus will not become a serious problem.
Pray that the antiviral medication will not cause any serious side effects - it can cause harm to the kidneys.
Pray that we will be able to easily coordinate giving Elena the new antiviral infusion as well as her fluids for 12 hours each night.
Pray for peace of mind.
Pray for Elena's complete and total healing.

Still praying and believing!

In Him,
The Tates

"When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet."  Proverbs 3:24


  1. Praying for complete healing and protection for Elena. Praying for peace of mind for all. Praying for and with you.

  2. This is all part of the process. Thank God that Elena can receive the care she needs and still be free at the R Mc house. Be happy and of good spirits and that little birth virus will disappear. He just thought he would hitch a ride on the happy train. But not for long
