Hospital Day #23 - 12/24/23 PM - Prayers Needed Tomorrow - NO BRAIN BLEEDS (restarting a 2nd Blood Thinner)
Brittney had a great finish to her Christmas Eve, saying “I feel like a kid at Christmas…and it’s not because of the presents…I just can’t wait to see everyone.” I love how the love of Jesus overflows her heart with a love of others. We absolutely cherished some great family time today and look forward to more great time with our crew tomorrow. Regardless of location, we are so blessed to be able to spend time with one another as we celebrate Jesus’ birth (https://www.trustworthyword.com/christmas)
ONE BIG PRAYER - Brittney’s clear CT scan today (thank you Lord!) allows for her to begin the 2nd of her two blood thinners again tomorrow. The doctors have waited two weeks post-stroke to start it back up (at a half dose this time) because of the danger of her brain bleed restarting. So while she has remained safe from clots and brain bleeds the past two weeks on one blood thinner, this necessary step of returning to two blood thinners (to keep her 4 carotid/vertebral artery stents from clotting) is a serious step. So please pray tomorrow (and the rest of the week) that specifically Brittney has NO BRAIN BLEEDS (and still no blood clots too :)).
Thank you prayer warriors!
