Many things have taken place since we've last posted. But the first thing I would like to say is your PRAYERS are working keep them coming.
Since the stents were placed on Tuesday Tina has been very ill. She has been a strong woman through it all. God has truly given her strength through your prayers. ICU was able to stabilize Tina and she was moved late last night to the Cancer floor to continue her battle. Our little warrior had yet another procedure this afternoon. They needed to place a tube in her colon to release the gases and some fluid. Since the stents Tina's bowel has yet to become active. The procedure went as planned and they were able to release the gas and some fluids. She also had another abdominal tap to relieve yet more fluids. She rested fairly well for hours. She remains getting her nutrition from a nutrition bag now for almost two weeks. These nutrition's help keep her to stay strong and to continue her fight.
Tina started physical therapy yesterday to help her get out of bed after being bed ridden for almost a full seven days. So for the next few days they will continue working with her helping to get her into a chair and hopefully start taking a few more steps every day.
Tina was due to have her second Chemo treatment on Friday but due to her health was unable to receive it. We are very hopeful with the new procedure she will be able to get the second Chemo treatment in the next few days.
As we watch Tina on this journey she has inspired many people here, doctors, nurses and those loved ones around here with her courage. But for all of you who have followed Tina these past five years you will not find this as any surprise.
In closing Tina asked that I share that all though she appreciates texts to her and calls. Do to the severity of her condition, she is not able to answer anyone at this time.
Keep the prayers coming because you are God's people and he is listening to you.
