Dick texted me yesterdy from Wisconsin to let me know things are not looking good. He had had a call from Rich and conveyed most of the info that was in the June 6 post. For every up, there seems to be another down, but every day of life is precious. Rich has to get home for the class he is teaching this short semester so if you would say a special prayer for Sharlah alone in Tucson, again. Thanks so much...Maureen

Spoke with Sharlah this morning and they will be doing a cat scan on Bekah today.* She has a fever and has been vomiting.* I'll let you know what they find when I talk to Sharlah.
Thanks for your continued prayers.* Please pray for Sharlah's strength today because she is so scared of more complications and setbacks for Bekah.* She has to put on such a brave and happy face for Bekah and I know it is just as overwhelming for her.* She needs extra strength today

Sharlah sent me a message that they think Bekah may have a slow bleed occurring.* That is the reason for the discomfort that she described with her colostomy.* Her hemo count dropped a little since yesterday.* They are going to try infusing her with platelets to see if it resolves itself.* They are watching her carefully.* Please pray that the platelet infusion works.* Richard will be heading home tonight and Sharlah will be there by herself for the week.* I'll update when I hear more from Sharlah. Thanks for all your prayers
