Bumpy Road- No News Was Good News
Basically Abby is feeling pretty bad. It all started as a cold but when you don't have much of an immunity a cold can be a pretty miserable thing. She's had this cold for about 3 to 4 weeks now and it wore down her defenses so much that she got a systemic fungal infection and maybe a sinus infection too.
She's now on antibiotics, a big-gun anti-fungal, and back to doing lots of rinses to try to get rid of the sores in her mouth and throat. She has also recently developed joint and muscle pain that has pretty much kept her in bed or on pain medication.
We are going back down to Denver on Friday to check with the clinic but right now they think it is just a virus that her weaken immune system will fight off, it'll just take extra time. I never knew the common cold, left unchecked by a healthy immunity, could get so bad. Poor kiddo.
So, please pray for her, as she once again walks through these painful symptoms. Pray that her joints/muscles will feel better soon, that her mouth sores will continue to improve, and that her nausea and cough will subside quickly as well.
Pray for her heart too. She is a trooper but she's also really tired of feeling so bad.
Thanks everyone, we really appreciate it!
