Please keep Kasey Smith, the sister of my daughter’s friend in your prayers. Below is a note Kristen sent me regarding this poor young woman’s struggles. Pray for comfort and healing and that whatever hospital she is in that they take better care of her than what this message indicates. Thank you.
Our friend Charles’s sister, Kasey Smith, is in the hospital and has been for almost 2 weeks. She was vomiting blood and having bloody stool, she went to the ER a couple of times and they couldn’t tell her anything and sent her home. The last time she went, they admitted her. She had a liver transplant as a child, so she has had problems in the past. When they admitted her, they did a liver biopsy. During the biopsy she contracted E.coli, which in turn sent her body into toxic shock. They had to put her in a coma, and Nicole used the term paralyze her body. She was in ICU until a couple of days ago when they woke her from the coma. She’s doing ok, and is now on the liver transplant floor (I would assume because of her history). She will have to go to residential physical therapy, not sure for how long, since her body was paralyzed for over a week. She’s only in her mid-twenties, so she’s young and hopefully can make a full recovery. Charles and Nicole are getting married in November so they’re also concerned if Kasey will be able to be a part of it or even be there for that matter.
