Jodi asked me to do one more update for today. She was in real difficult shape this morning when I sent out the first update and made the appeal for extra prayers. Then gradually things began to turn around and for several hours she felt quite good. This was also when she learned that there was no spinal fluid draining from her nose or down her throat. There was a surge of strength and the feeling that she had turned a corner towards where we all want her to be.
This afternoon she had a tough spell again as they moved the incline of her head, rolled her over for a shot, and didn't get the pain medication in time before her head pain exploded again!
The reality is that its an up and down process with so many variables at work. It is also a reality that your prayers have made and do make a difference...a big difference! The most important need is the healing of the spinal fluid leak and all the evidence right now points to that happening!!! How grateful we are!
As has always been the case, your comments on the blog, your calls, and messages continue to sustain Jodi (and the rest of us). Your prayers continue to bless her (and the rest of us). Your incredible love and kindness and support lift Jodi's spirits as little else could.
Right now, Jodi is resting comfortably and peacefully with the pain moderated. She is hoping for a good night's rest. She wants me to thank you for your prayers once again. Each of you and all of you are Heaven-sent blessings!
