Katie is at M.D. Anderson - Update

Katie is at M.D. Anderson in Houston, Texas.

The family was able to see Katie a week ago Thursday at the Corpus Airport as she returned from Houston. Katie was surrounded by five armed guards at the airport. We all got to talk to her a few minutes.

Michele spent Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday with Katie at M.D. Anderson. Katie is really missing her home and family and friends. She is now staying in a CPS home in Houston where her own family cannot visit her. Katie's hospital room is guarded by an armed guard.

Katie is now being cared for by a team of doctors who are re-evaluating her.
She has had another CAT scan and another PET scan done. She had a bone marrow sample taken and had a biopsy on the tumor Thursday. We were told that test results will be back on Tuesday next week.

She has received no treatments of chemo or radiation as of today. Where was the urgency? Please continue to pray for Katie's complete healing and that God will continue to give her strength to endure the separation from her mom, dad, and brothers. The pain has to be unbearable.
