Visits limited to family only for a while

Denise sure is special! So many people have been by to visit, that the nurses & doctors said they really are concerned that Denise needs more quiet & rest. So for the next few days, they've requested that we let everyone know that visits are limited to immediate family for now. If anyone else visits, either we have to be with them or we have to call ahead first to give permission. Don't worry... when things change, you bet I'll post the info here!

When I visited earlier this evening, I noticed a couple good things. They raised her bed up a few more degrees (her blood pressure's still good enough to get blood to her brain even when she's sitting higher). Her heart rate & breathing rate were both slower (they have been, and still are, too fast). Otherwise, things were still stable.

And now for a computer literacy lesson (for those of you that don't know me, I teach K-8 Computer at Pasadena Christian School in Pasadena CA). A blog is just a journal that's on a web site. If you can type in a web address to see a web page, you can read the blog. It's not anything fancy, and you don't have to worry about "not knowing how to use a blog program."

Thanks for the comments! To leave a comment, click on the link at the bottom of each entry that says how many comments there are (it's to the LEFT of the little white envelope) . Fill in the form, post your comment, and it's there for all of us to see! The little white envelope is so you can send an email to someone that would be interested in the blog. And yes, by popular demand, I'll try to get some pictures of Denise on the blog so that our prayer warriors that have never met us can see who's so special.

I found a good web site for info on valley fever.
Glad to hear the small steps Denise makes toward recovery. This will be a long slow road.
As an oncoloogy nurse I;m glad to hear also you are limiting her exposure to all of us who unknowingly carry possible additional infections to her. Her immune system is already working very hard to fight what she has. She continues in our prayers.

The Lord gave me the verse from Romans 12:12 "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." That is what I am claiming, as I pray fervently for Denise. I am own my knees as I lift you all to HIM. I love you guys, Kathy Larson

Hi Phil - This is Niccole's mother-in-law, Biana. Wanted to let you know that I've passed your emails, prayer requests, and now the blog site on to the prayer chains & email prayer sites for Fresno First Baptist & Fowler First Pres. So, don't be surprised if you find comments here from people you've never heard of. The bond of the Holy Spirit that unites us in one body is strong & powerful. Many are praying & believing with you for Denise's healing & full recovery. Be strengthened by the Lord's love given freely to you. In Christ, Biana Grogg
