Well, Jr and I are home for the evening after being with Lindsay all day in the PICU. Brings back memories of not too long ago in the PICU at U of M. I remember telling everyone that I couldn't get out of there soon enough. But that was when my baby was doing well. Right now, my feelings are that she can stay there as long as she needs in order to get better. Funny how those things change huh? Right now she is having trouble staying stable. So, in other words, she is not stable anymore but working towards getting that way. They are playing with a few things to get her stats up and then maybe in just a few days, we can get her off of the ventilator. She is doing all of the work herself but needs a little oxygen right now until her body recovers from going into shock. If I didn't mention last time, when we got to the ER last night, her body temp was only 84 degrees!! YIKES! Usually that is a sign of infection but the blood work done indicated no infection. PRAISE GOD!!!!!! That was because of the shock and has since stayed at around 98 degrees like where it should be. Pretty much the diagnosis is that she aspirated. What an awful thing for a baby to go through just from aspirating but heart babies tend to do that but it just can unfortunately be a life or death situation. We were definitely closer to the later of the two when we got to the hospital. Please pray tonight that Lindsay can adjust to the meds and get off of the ventilator as soon as she can.
Thanks Steve and Tina for coming to visit tonight. That meant a lot to us and please know that we love you both very much!
Good night and Heart hugs and love to everyone. Talk again tomorrow-
