Day 34: Hard To Stomach

Today was a rougher day for Krista. She hasn't been feeling very good because of the pain. The pain specialist ordered an increase in her base dose of pain killer, but she has to wait until she goes down for her checkup appointment tomorrow at the City of Hope to pick it up from their pharmacy. I ordered the special "MG plus protein" magnesium supplements (which are supposed to be more easily digested) online because none of the local stores carried anything like it. In the meantime, we gave her some regular magnesium pills which she threw up within 5 minutes. The incident may not have been directly related to the pills, but she hasn't thrown up in a long time so it's a bit suspicious. They'll check her magnesium levels tomorrow and might have to give her a magnesium transfusion. Praying for wisdom for the doctors and safety for the journey.
Remember your word to your servant,
for you have given me hope.
My comfort in my suffering is this:
Your promise preserves my life.
(Psalm 119:49-50)

Mike, David and I use topical magnesium. We make the solution (takes about two minutes), then spray it on our skin. If you are intereted, I can send you links to info and where to get it.
Much love and many prayers. Kathi
