Update On Bonnie-Please Pray For Her


Hello Denise and Friends,Sorry for not checking in sooner. We've been to the hospital again. Bonnie recently had her dialysis port replaced again on Monday, 7/9. She then went to Dialysis the next day, Tuesday 7/10, and the new port still did not work properly. It was back to the hospital on Wed. 7/11 to have another surgery on the port. During her stay in the hospital the doctor decided to remove the port entirely because her labwork showed some kidney improvement. PTL. After the port was remove, it started to bleed and they had trouble stopping it. It stopped after about 30 minutes and the doctor decided to leave. But before he got to the door, it started bleeding again. The doctor stayed with her almost the entire afternoon trying to control the bleeding. While he was there, he decided to go over her records, chart and xrays. By the grace of God, he found a blood clot behind her heart. Therefore he kept her in the hospital because of the seriousness of the situation. A vascular surgeon consulted with other doctors and us, and it was determined not to do surgery because she has been through so much lately. The plan was to send her home and to receive blood thinning injections and pills to try to desolve the clot. She will be doing labwork 2-3 times a week and then followup with the doctor to see if there is any improvement. She will not have to go to dialysis unless the labs shows the need for it. We know God had his hand in all of this, otherwise we would have never known there was a blood clot behind the heart. Bonnie is home resting and taking her medicine. She sends her love to all and we both say thank you for the continued prayers. We thank God for HIS mercy and grace, and for friends like you.Love,Jack and Bonnie
