Off ECMO!!!!!!!


As of 5pm this evening, Lindsay is officially off of ECMO! Good job princess!!! So far so good and her stats are looking just great. She still has a lot ahead of her but is again, trucking along. She will have another head CT sometime tomorrow that the neurologists have ordered to see if there is any difference between the one that was done yesterday on ECMO and the new one off ECMO. Again, please pray that they don't find anything alarming and that her brain is functioning as it should. That looks very promising considering that she is handling things so well off ECMO. We love you princess! More updates tomorrow.
Love,
Suzie

What a Rock Star! Keep it up, Princess! I imagine you are all exhausted from the events of the last couple of days. Hopefully you can rest a little easier tonight. Continuing to pray for great results from the next CT scan.

Yea, Yea, Yea! I actually just finished reading an email from Rebecca sharing this fabulous news! One day at a time... one step at a time... one prayer at a time... she WILL get through this... I just know she WILL! Tonight, I will offer prayers of thanksgiving as well as more prayers for a clear CT scan tomorrow and continued strong heart function. I hope you can get some rest tonight. Lots of love... Danielle

P.S. I assume that the "official" CT report came back clear today??

Okay, is it possible to get any cuter?????????? Just when I think it is not possible, new pictures appear that beat out the older ones!!! I thought that I had the cutest babies but I have to say...Miss Lindsay takes the cake!!!! So releaved that she is off ECMO. It serves a very important purpose but I am growing to hate those initials, E,C, M, O.
Here's to a great day today!!!!

Love, Alison

My heart goes out to you guys. You are so strong and Lindsay is just, I don't know, words can't express it. She is a true gift from God. I will continue my prayers for all of you.
