Inflammation almost all gone

Ok so Lenora was in bed most of yesterday. She is feeling better though and is eating some again along with drinking the dreaded Ensure, meal supplement! She drinks only as much as she gets told to drink! Quick question: Do all hospital patients hate that stuff? She got so tired of it when she was still in Winnipeg!
It looks like she's on the upward climb again. She can walk as well as before her nausea spell. If things keep improving this way or quicker 😀 She possibly will come home by Monday or Tuesday.

Today Lenora went outside the front entrance to lay on a bench in the sun for a while. Apparently the temperatures were up at 25C!!
Nurses are giving her something for her stomach through IV along with Hydration fluids. (I did mention her veins are collapsed. Just by way of clarification, they are not collapsed. They are only really hard to find. My aunt tells me veins react to pokes and get smaller and 'hide' I didn't know the difference between collapsed veins and veins that are hard to find. Sorry! Hopefully this helps!!)

The biopsy and test result reports came from Winnipeg today. We are really curious what Dr James will conclude when he goes over this information!
The inflammation on her brain lining as well as in her stomach lining has cleared up!! Thank-you, Jesus!!

Many have been wondering what we were hoping to accomplish by taking Lenora to Mexico over treating her in Manitoba. Treating her here would have meant using steroids. None of us, including Lenora, wanted to risk the side effects possibly involved. By Treating her in MX we were able to tap into natural treatment methods and thus avoid many, if not all, side affects. Were we not going out there to get a diagnosis? No! We would have been happy to get one but the main reason we went was to find help so Lenora could regain her health and come home to live normal life again.
The decision to take her south was hard. It would've been so much easier for right now to stay here. But we believe the long term benefits will be worth it.

Lenora did ask for special prayer that Dr. James will find what happened that caused her to have this bout with nausea.

The Lord is righteous in all His ways And kind in all His deeds. The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them. (Psalms 145:17-19 NASB)
