Pray for Erin

A set back on the journey June 24, 2014

This Karen (Erin’s Mom) writing for Erin.

 

Last Wednesday Erin started feeling pretty sick and was not doing well when she arrived at Chemo on Thursday morning.  She had a temp of 104 and was in significant pain.  They began IV antibiotics immediately and admitted her to the critical care unit at Warren General Hospital.  I am sitting with her there now.

It was determined that the tumor is pushing on her kidney and that caused a urinary tract infection.  They have put a stint in to help with drainage and that is improving.  The infection seems to be under control.  There are other complications that we are dealing with that make this a very painful situation physically for her.  We think we can get past this but for now all treatment for the cancer is on hold.  Her mediport had to be removed because it was infected.

The results from last weeks CT scan show that the current chemo is not having an effect on the tumor so the Dr. here is working on a new treatment plan.

Erin is discouraged and a little depressed and asks that you pray for her emotional and physical needs.  Also pray for her as we work on the new treatment plan with her doctors.  We are exploring all options including other facilities.

She is not currently checking email or facebook, nor is she able to respond to txts or phone calls.  Expressions of encouragement are welcome but might not be seen right away.  Because of her low energy we are trying to keep visitors to just family.

Thanks to everyone for the prayers and support.

 

Karen

    My Dear Erin, You are so loved and you are such an inspiration. I want you to know that I’m going to show Sheriff this year and get a blue ribbon just because you made it happen. You’ll get past the beast also. God is with you always because you have let Him in. Love, Val
