Today was a very difficult day for Stephanie. She’s healing fine, but she continues to retain a lot of fluid. This morning was especially hard for her, as she had trouble breathing due to the fluid in her chest. The doctor drained a liter of fluid from her chest. She’s very sore and exhausted, but feels much better since she can catch her breath. They are going to keep her here until the rest of the fluid goes down, which could be early next week.
During her pain this morning, she took comfort in Psalm 23 and Job, and it was nice to see the sunshine through the window.
