And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Good Morning

First, thank you for your prayers over night!  God again provided a miracle!  Today's PLEX is dependent upon Princess' blood levels.  Just for comparison, if a certain marker- fibrinogen- is less than 100 we will not be able to do PLEX.  After the first exchange, Princess' fibrinogen level was dropped and the next lab level showed her marker to be below 100; therefore, not allowing for PLEX to go on for the next scheduled opportunity.

Well....this morning....We were just stunned and amazed as just moments ago as the PLEX team walked in to begin the procedure and shared with us that her fibrinogen levels were at 218!  More than enough.  This is even greater news as for the second exchange her level was only at 125.  PRAISE THE LORD!!!

Prayers for today:
  • Princess' heart rate would slow down.  While upright and just sitting her heart rate is staying elevated around 120 bpm.  Please pray that this would dramatically reduce below 95 and Princess would feel comfort for the first time in several weeks.
  • Princess is having a consistent and persistent sharp chest pain.  Please pray for this pain to subside and go away!
  • Please pray for our PLEX technician today.  We are meeting him for this first time and we look forward to having a consistent treatment message conveyed.
We're about to start the exchange!
