After my last post, Rachel's headaches spiked and it was like starting over at square 1...and she was so upset! It was so sudden. One minute her headaches are at a level of 5 and the next she is weak, pale, shaky, and the pain level is back to 9.
They have doubled all of her medications and had to give her another medication to help with the pain. I had to have this medicine 12 years ago to keep me from going into pre-term labor with Hannah and it was not fun...it was a little scary.
Naturally, we were concerned when they decided to give the medication to Rachel. Thankfully, the dosage was much smaller than what I was given many years ago. Her headaches are down to a 2 or 3 and our daughter is finally resting as I type.
I doubt that we will be able to go home tomorrow but that is okay. We want Rachel to be well and for there to be no more headaches.
It's been a roller coaster kind of day for sure but God is over it all and we take great comfort in knowing that He is in charge and that He knows what is best for Rachel.
My sweet brother and my Uncle Tony surprised us tonight. How wonderful to see both of them! Thank you Mrs. Amanda and family for the wonderful basket of goodies. We have enough snacks to last until the end of the month! Ya'll are so good to us.
We are praying that Rachel has a great night with a lot of sleep and very little pain. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers.
