Miraculous Recovery for Kateen

On Sunday, we shared at church about Kateen (see previous posts), and described her situation as grave. (At the same time, I know the same thing was going on at a sister church in town, where quite a few people also know Kateen). She had not regained consciousness since being admitted to the hospital, her kidneys were failing, and the doctors were not sure if they could stop the progress of the infection that had already caused them to amputate a leg and remove quite a bit more skin. The doctors were telling Kateen's family that if she survived, she would need six months of recuperation in the hospital.

On Monday my daughter Mackenzie called with wonderful news. Kateen is now scheduled to be released from the hospital in ten days! Her kidney function has returned, the infection has stopped spreading. As of Monday evening she had already been to her first physical therapy session. The doctors, Mackenzie said, could describe Kateen's turnaround as nothing less than a miracle.

Praise God!
