Update 2...

Sarah has been here at the hospital since Wednesday night. While she has been here the doctor's have been working to find a plan of medication that will address Sarah's pain and keep it a level she can deal with. Yesterday morning Sarah woke up and her pain was down from a 7 or 8 to a 4 or 5. Yes! They had finally found a combo of medication that would control her pain. The best part is that everything they used she can get a prescription for and take at home. This is fantastic news for Sarah! She now has a medication plan that will control her pain at home. Because she is doing so well they will be sending her home today.

Even though we now have her pain under control, Sarah still has five more radiation treatments left. Please pray that Monday through Friday will go as well as possible and that Sarah's skin breakdown will not worsen.

I am so glad to hear your coming home a day early from the hospital. What an ordeal, you are such a brave young girl and you will be rewarded in the future for all your struggles.
One more week of radiation and you can take a big break before you start reconstruction I hope.

I am so amazed by your courage and your strength - even when you feel like you have none left, well there it is, surfacing again.

I feel in my heart that you will win this battle and be looking back some day soon with fading memories of these painful times.

You are surrounded by love and comfort and support!!
