Needing Wisdom and Prayers

From Michelle:

Abby's breathing was "junky" last night in ER but once the Tylenol kicked in she did much better. They decided to admit her for observation. Abby looks better this morning but is still congested and coughing up a lot of gross stuff.


Abby was scheduled to have a LP (spinal tap) today so they can inject chemo into her spinal fluid. Delays in chemo can give Abby's cancer the opportunity to come back BUT sedating her when she is sick can be dangerous.

Normally they do the LPs in the clinic but if they do it today it will be in the hospital. Unfortunately, an anesthesiologist will NOT be present at either location.

They prefer doing the procedure today, since Abby could be sick for a long time but are leaving the decision to me. Thanks for praying with us.

Dear Michele, we will be praying for you to day to know the right decisions and the wisdom to know the difference and to NOT have any confusion! My Spirit tells me to wait till she can feel and be healthier and trust the Lord! See if others and the Holy Spirit confirms that for you! Much love and prayers sent your way!

A topical numbing agent can be used instead of sedation for LP. (& it actually works too) Abby is a STRONG WARRIOR!!! LP's are minor compared to procedures Abby's already been through. And I'm sure Abby would rather have some pain rather than CANCER!!! It's recommended that she lie down for a few hours after the test and drink plenty of fluids to help prevent headaches.

May you make a decision that will benefit Abby!!! *hugs*

Peace, Love & Joy,

Jesse, James and Lindsey's mom said...

So she needs an LP and there is no one to sedate her? Or she cant be sedated because she is sick?

My nurse/mom brain says she needs the anesthesia doc to monitor her due to her resp status if she is sedated.maybe I dont understand.

You are in my prayers, specifically for wisdom regarding her chemo treatment. I am totally ignorant of these things, so I wonder if it is necessary to fully sedate her, or if there is some other option that might be safer and still allow her to get the chemo? Sorry if that's a dumb question (and I don't expect you to have to answer on here, just thinking "out loud" in the hopes something might "click").
