Quick update



Unfortunately, I don't have much to update but I know people have been asking questions. Bottom line is Kami is still in the hospital. She has classic pancreatitis and is in a boat load of pain. Eating makes the pain worse but she can't go home til she can get nutrition on her own. She has tried clear broth, jello, etc and even that hurts.

The sad thing is that even though she isn't eating she has put on nearly 30 pounds in a week. Is that insane or what? Today she told them they needed to figure out what the deal was with that. She is so swollen! They say it is highly unlikely it is the medicine SO they are taking her off her IV and hoping she can't let go of some of this fluid. Poor thing- like she didn't have enough to worry about without this!

Anyway- she will still be there a little longer-almost all her numbers are coming down to normal range except her pancreas. Oh yeah- the worst part- she dropped her phone and broke it this morning. Now THAT is traumatic!!!!! (maybe her fingers will get a little rest from texting)

Oh, poor Kami! I thought sure she'd be home and on the mend. And how frustrated she must feel...broth and jello, and gaining weight! At least she should get to eat a hot fudge sundae with results like that! Please let her know there are many out here praying for her speedy recovery

No wonder she isn't answering her phone... I tried calling her. Mom told me about the weight. That really sucks.

Boy, I was hoping for better news. I'm sure the swelling will go away as soon as she gets better but I am sad to hear she is still hurting. Thinking of you!
