Pain doc visit

A pain specialist, Dr Langsley, came to see Jess this afternoon. Jess has been in some pain despite the medicines especially when she raised the head up on the hospital bed. I think it's been much better since she has not been screaming nor crying and she has been asleep most of the time. He ordered an IV medicine that Jess can push a button when she is in pain. He also said he would try to find a doctor in Fort Worth that would has equipment for adjusting her pain pump. It would be awesome if they could figure out a way to make it where Jess is in no pain. He also said it would probably take a few days to get it under control. In the meantime Jess was wise in wanting to go to a hospital that's close to family and friends.

It breaks my heart that Jessica has been in so much pain. We pray that the doctors will be able to better monitor and control this.

We are praying for pain relief and rest for Jessica and strength as well as rest for Jacob. We are also praying for peace for the girls as they are concerned about their mom. We never ceased to be amazed at what our God can do or at what you guys can do through His power.

Please keep in mind that families and friends would drive hours or do anything for Jessica to not be in pain. I pray that she receives the treatment she needs, whereever that may be.
