Chrissie's Medical Agenda

Well, "the plan" (dare I type those words?!?) for Chrissie is beginning to come together, atleast I think so!  God continues to teach me the amazingly difficult virtue of patience, and He continues to remind me that I have NO control, but He has absolute control.  I trust Him.  Wholeheartedly.  While we've already done the first 3 steps in the following agenda, we must repeat them due to certain complications, such as a fractured stent that was recently discovered under chest x-ray during Chrissie's recent respiratory distress hospitalization.

Here's the agenda (yeah, that word sounds better...connotation of "agenda" for me includes adjustments as necessary!):
  • March 29, 1:45PM, CT scan of chest to view fractured stent (will be done under anesthesia in the hospital, most likely outpatient)
  • April 1, Chrissie's case will go back to conference with the pulmonary medical team (which includes her cardiologist and cardiac surgeon)
  • April 7, Heart Catheterization procedure (overnight stay in hospital) IF it is determined by the results of the CT scan that the current fractured stent must be removed and replaced via balloon cath procedure
  • April 19, Open-Heart Surgery
Grateful for our Jehovah Rapha (Healing God) who is the best Commander in Chief, our One and Only.

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."  Psalm 147:3

Thanks for the updates. Just printed out the updated tentative plans so I can keep Chrissie and your family in prayer.
Love and hugs and prayers,
