09-03-11 Happy Birthday Stevie Jill!

It is hard to believe Stevie is 3 years old today! Happy Birthday sweet girl! Wish Mimi and Papaw were there to celebrate! We have been in Houston during all 3 of our GrandKids birthdays 😦
Here I am in room 1002 at MDA….yes I was admitted last night, and after the past couple of days, I did not argue at all! It was no longer possible to manage my pain at home. Here’s what happens with the BK virus – the lining inside the bladder sloughs off resulting in pain, bleeding, and blood clots. This virus is a common childhood respiratory illness, but when it reoccurs in transplant patients in the bladder and kidneys it is very rare. In fact my nurse last night told me she only sees it a couple of times a year. I am on the only med that might work, and I feel like it is helping. Between a good night’s sleep and my pain pump, I feel pretty good right now! My team is doing every thing possible to get me over this so that I can go home. Dr. Hosing felt like I would be here a few days, possibly a week.
Everyone have a great holiday weekend!

    Sweet Holly and Wade,
    You and Wade stay strong and keep your eyes on the great HEALER! Praying for you and constantly lifting you up. It was such a blessing to get to see you yesterday and I was glad you got to meet Jimmy and he got to meet you. When you get back home, we are taking you and Wade to your favorite Lubbock restaurant. Can’t wait to celebrate with you! Keep on keeping on. You and Wade are such an inspiration to Jimmy and I!!
    GOD’s Blessings,

    Hey Holly, I’m so glad you are in MDA and getting some relief from that virus. My mom always says, when we do something really hard or really good, that our halo is getting really shiny; well, yours must be really shiny about now. Love, Mikie
