Saturday afternoon update - Bob DeWaay Health

We are thankful to be seeing small improvements today. His hemoglobin is holding steady and his white blood cell count climbed to 3.4. They were able to get him a smaller mask, which he likes. He is still needing a lot of breathing support from the bipap. He did get to have some clear fluids this afternoon, which was a real blessing. He has not been able to have anything by mouth since Tuesday, so he was thankful for even a little fluid.

The hemotologist took him off of Imuran because that can affect bone marrow. We are hoping that will help his blood numbers. Imuran has been keeping the Churg-Strauss syndrome under control the last couple of years, so please pray about this. 

Thank you for your continued prayers.

Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
