My Cousin Bonnie Opper & Her Family
My cousin Bonnie Opper was admitted to the hospital yesterday (November 23) - In May of 2009 she was diagnosed with Leukemia. In October of 2009 she had a bone marrow transplant and was doing quite well until a few weeks ago. November 23rd she was admitted to the hospital because of a high fever. Her temperature stayed between 103 and 104 degrees for most of the day which physically took a toll on Bonnie. Between the combination of prayers mixed with ice packs around her body and heavy duty antibiotics her fever broke. She is still having some GI issues, so that remains a concern as this could be Graft vs Host Disease flaring up where we don't want it to. It could also be something related to the fever. Key to this is the GI tract being replenished with new white blood cells, which is something Bonnie currently does not have which is the million dollar question...why did her white blood cell count drop down next to nothing?
Unfortunately with all of this, it is requiring another bone marrow biopsy today. Something Bonnie said she would never have done again. On the plus side of things, as an "inpatient" they can give her all kinds of meds to help her forget the procedure and be happy the doctors came to visit.
My cousin Bonnie Opper and her family are
facing this time of distress. Please be praying for: Bonnie Opper, her husband Steve Opper and their children Cassandra, Caleb, and Callie
.For their perserverence
.Wisdom and Guidance
.Peace that passes all understanding
.For COMPLETE healing for Mrs. Opper
.For Wisdom with the doctors and nurses
.For Cassandra as she is at Spring Arbor
.For relatives of the Opper family
.That the Body of Christ would surround them with love and support
.That God would be close to them at this time. That He would draw them closer together and reveal Himself to them in His supernatural way.
"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of him" (1 John 5:14-15).
