We're Home!

The MRI today showed nothing abnormal in her kidney function, so the docs are leaning toward thinking the hypertension was caused by her brain injury. The medicine they started a few days ago seems to be working very well, so they discharged Annie this afternoon, and after spending way too much time on the 405, we got home, popped her in the bathtub, and tucked her in bed. Thank you Trisha, Pam, Linda, Rebecca B., Kathy D., Rebecca M., Vickie, Sue P., Gretchen, Marilyn, Jeff, Dan, Lorraine, Grandmommy, Poppie, Rebecca O., Pauline, Sue & Rick and all my wonderful nurse friends, (you know who you are), for all your visits, phone calls, help & support.

Thank you, too, anonymous prayer warriors, SO MUCH for praying us through this last week in the hospital. Children's is a great place to visit, but not somewhere we want to live!

Jean (and Bill and Annie)

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever. Psalm 118:29

Thankyou Jesus for normal kidney function. Thankyou for the strength we see you have provided. I pray for peace upon the Sullivan household. I continue to ask and believe for healing for Annie's brain and as we all wait upon You, our provider and deliverer, help us to rest in You.
"For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him"

Yeah, I don't get it either.

I'm so glad the kidneys are doing what they're supposed to be doing. Glad you're home. I hope you'll all be able to get a bit of rest in a more familiar, comfy environment.

Praise You, Jesus! Thank You for hearing our prayers and loving us through the muck. In Your name. Amen.


P.S. Jean, I don't yet know David's school schedule for his home school network. I should figure that out in a few weeks, and might be able to come "play" again. Sorry I've been so little help during the summer. See you soon.

Normal kidney function is a good thing, it means it is healthy! Jesus, thank you!
I am so thankful you are home and you have so many people loving on you seen an unseen.
