Moved to the special care unit

The doctors moved Kathryn to the Special Care this evening. (It is like the NICU.) She is up to needing 4 liters of oxygen. My specific prayer is that God would allow Kathryn to fight this and keep her oxygen levels below 5 liters. If she gets to that point, they will be closer to considering reintubation again and we are really praying that won't happen. In this unit she will still have the same team of doctors, but more nursing care. We can't stay with her at this point and are back to only getting to see her during visiting hours.

Pray that Kathryn will improve and be moved back to a private room again soon. Keep praying for wisdom on the doctors' part and that they will accurately diagnose her.... they are now considering the possibility of pulmonary hypertension as part of her issues, but we won't know more about that for a few days.

Please put on your prayer warrior hat!
