Faith (Friday July 18th)
They were able to get a feeding tube into Wennie last night and today I saw some food dripping down it. We're pretty relived to see her get something in her stomach. Though my wish would be for her to be able to eat real, tangible food that she can taste, this is better than nothing. This morning, she told me that some blood was in mucus when they cleared her breathing tube. Everything is now fine though. They routinely clear out secretions from her lungs and when I was in there they only had to go in with the tube twice; a lot less than this morning. Nikki, her sister, Nikki her friend, and I read her inspirational stories from Chicken Soup for the Cancer Survivor's Soul this morning and that seemed to help strengthen her resolve. It really helps her to have people around, even if they aren't conversing with her every single second. Wennie just likes to have family and friends nearby. She seems a little more tired today, but not as bad as a couple of days before. Please, please email some of the bands in the post below. As always thanks for your support, love, and prayers.
