Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

#2 Update on Mom......

Just off the phone with Mom and they arrived safely at home. She feels better now that she has rested. A few things she learned from today's trip:

-no artery disease in her legs
-she is # 2 or 3 on the transplant list
-she has been considered for a transplant on several occasions, as the coordinator put it, " many, many, many times."
-never called due to her antibody factor
-ejection fraction at a 10....lower than the last time...not good..btw...yours and mine are somewhere between 55-70ish
-gained 10 lbs...good thing...but where did it go? ;-)....
-due to weight gain, the IV meds were increased therefore she is toting the new and improved "concentrated" IV bag.....it's smaller/lighter...yeah for Mom!!

Thanks for your prayers!

Love you all,
Carrie

I will be praying for your mom. Would you it be ok if I requested prayer for her at my church (Breakthrough Church of God- Pastor David Mays) Not sure if you remember he or myself. We graduated from Ider in 93. We were closer to Jody's age and Montye and I are good friends. Please let me know if it is ok.
