Lindsay has not had the greatest day at all. We were very excited to see her this morning because her night and all day yesterday was so wonderful. We get there to find that she is back at a 5 on the nitric and is at 100% on the ventilator. Can you believe that?!! She had a few episodes last night when her sats dipped down into the 40's. They then added the nitric back and didn't seem to help at all. Then another episode and had to paralyze again because she wouldn't calm down. This afternoon doctors conducted at least a two hour echo! Yes, two hours! They discovered that she has a pocket of fluid on her left lung and in the back. So, they had to put another chest tube in to drain it out. So far, not much drainage, but the hope is that when they turn her and adjust through the night that she will get more out. Doctors are again going to have a pow-wow about her tomorrow and discuss the next step. I tell you what, we are getting frustrated. Not to the point of making scenes, that is not our style, but we can surely get our points across clearly. We are back at the RMH to have dinner and then up to spend precious time with the princess. Mom and Bill were our visitors today and brought us soup for the week and of course the Terry and DeVito families are keeping us fed. Our fridge has been stocked once again! Thank you all! You don't know how much that helps us out!
We love you all and again, appreciate all of the love and support through this very difficult ordeal. Like, Stephanie said, down on your knees and pray that we get a solution so that Lindsay can move on to whatever is in store for her and to what God has planned. Aunt Carole and Uncle Robb, kiss our Cruzer for us! And Steph and Bob, give Cole hugs and kisses from us too! We love you!
