I am finally getting a breather......

After a pretty uneventful evening, Lindsay is still resting and being treated with a bigger antibiotic to attack whatever it is that is making her feel like poop! It was confirmed by xray last night that she does have pneumonia, again!, and something else that is making her vomit, have diarrhea, and having fevers. So, in the ER, they put her on Vancomyacin and has been getting it every 6 hours since. She also got some much needed fluids through IV and had labs drawn to try and get any idea of what else is festering. So far, all things are looking normal......except for the princess. Boooooo! She was a happy little girl last night after getting the fluids and some pedialite, but after sleeping rather well last night, she has just been a zombie. Poor baby! Since we were supposed to have our clinic visit today anyway, Lindsay just finished with her sedated echo and EKG. So, it will probably take all afternoon for her to come around after being knocked out for the procedure. We will speak to Meg and Dr. G later today on the results. Looks like we might be here for a few more days so I have been trying to get us in at the Med Inn. We shall see. In the meantime, I might go hunting for a comfy chair to sleep in tonight!! ha ha Continue to pray for the princess as rejection is always in the back of our minds. It really hasn't been talked about since that is not what they think is wrong. But, I'm a mom and can't fight the fact that I always worry about that. Love to you all!
Heart Blessings~

I hope she gets over all this quickly. And I understand about the thoughts in the back of your head.. she's a fighter though and she'll be fine. It will just take some time.

Lindsay is a strong little girl who loves her new heart, so rejection isn't the case, I'm sure! She just got worn out after that awesome vacation and the Easter holidays, that's all!

We continue to pray for her by name every day (Joseph in particular prays for "Zachary, Lindsay, and all the heart babies"!) We hope you are out of there in just a couple days!

Kiss the princess for us. We'll be heading up there again way too soon... Zachy's Fontan in June 30!

Miss you,
