Update on Katherine

Hi, Friends. It's Patrice again.

I just talked to a friend of Katherine's that is with her at the hospital today. She will not be going home today like she had hoped. Her blood pressure has come down some, but it's still not low or stable enough for her to come home. Her headaches are coming and going, mostly related to lack of sleep and anxiety and some to the blood pressure issues. Grayson and Amelia are doing well. Grayson is home from work today and tomorrow, getting the boys off to school and caring for Amelia.

One big prayer request is that Katherine can get some good sleep. She is having a very hard time sleeping restfully or for an extended period of time. She could really really use some good sleep to help her recover. She is also dealing with anxiety and missing her family very much. Please keep the prayers coming.

Is it possible she might have what they call a spinal headache? You can get really bad ones from failed epidurals when they accidently puncture the spinal fluid instead of the epidural space. I had one once and it felt like the top of my head was blowing off and I screamed. The "cure" is to lay flat on your back and if severe to do a "patch" where they inject your own blood into the leak.

Love you, friend! Get better and get back home. Will be praying for continued rest when you get home. Let me know if there is anything John and I can do! We've been there, done that, wish we were closer to be of some physical help.

A family friend lost his wife shortly after she had a baby a few years ago. She had breast cancer at the time but the death was unrelated to cancer. After the baby was born she started having headaches. Here is a link to the blog where the headaches first started and if you read the posts following it you can read more about it. Maybe it will give some insight into what is happening to Katherine.

Hi Katherine,
I've never posted here before, but read your blog often. I stopped by to look for an update, but am hoping that no news is good news, and that you are just too busy snuggling with that new bundle to update us.
Praying for you....
Rhonda
