Last night, Rachel, a fellow missionary (and nurse) watched Amy while I directed our chess club we have for neighborhood kids. She gave us good advice for positioning Amy to help her bedsores stop advancing and she also pointed out that we could get her some antifungal solution for her mouth. Amy has a case of thrush because of the steroids she's been on and because she can't swallow adequately. This morning Sarah and I went for a run with a purpose: We ran to the pharmacy about 1.5 miles away to get nystatin liquid to put in Amy's mouth, which she tolerated well. Another missionary nurse, Dorothee came over and recommended alternating warm and cold packs on her sores to get the blood flowing better to speed healing. She also left some special pillows to keep Amy positioned as best we can. Thanks, Rachel & Dorothee!
This afternoon, the Wade's came over and watched Amy and sent us out for lunch at Chili's and a movie (the Jungle Book). It is the first time we've gone out to eat in over two months. It was a great time to be out together as a family. Thanks, Wades!
