Monday Morning Update

Jessica had a downer morning.  I could tell as soon as I walked in her room, she was not doing well.  She was in a lot of pain.  And I found out she had a couple of bad dreams and asked her nurse to call me, and the nurse told her we were sleeping and did not call us.  Needless to say, I was not thrilled, and it won’t happen again.   Please pray for peaceful sleeps for her.  I think the medications are giving her crazy and scary dreams.

It took awhile for her to perk up and getting more meds in her to give her comfort.  She sat up in a chair for over an hour and then took a long walk – went about 6x as far as she did last night and walked along at a good pace.

There is concern still of the bedsore developing AND pneumonia.  Both of her lower lungs show slight collapse – mainly because she is not breathing in deeply enough.  So we are working on getting her to blow in a “thingy” that makes the balls go up 10x every hour.  It’s already helped her oxygen levels and she is OFF OXYGEN!  This will be continued work for her.

She is getting one chest tube out this afternoon which they will sedate her for.  Two more to go after that and generally they do the last two at the same time.  And she should be moving out of ICU later this afternoon as well.  This means I can sleep in the room with her.

Thank you for praying.

  1. Hi Loni, I haven’t visited in a while and I come on and see all this has happened and is happening with your daughter. I am praying, with all my heart, for her recovery. I do not have the words for comfort or encouragement because I honestly do not understand what you are going through. But God knows, and He can give you and will give you what you need to get through this. So never fail to run to him for whatever it is you need…no matter how petty you think it may be. (((Hugs)))

  2. Erk, I would of been extremely annoyed at the nurse if she hadn’t called me. I hope that she will get out of the ICU soon, that way you can stay with her all the time, if you want to of course. When does it look like she will be able to escape from the Hospital? I know how hard it is to have a child in the Hospital, especially around a Holiday and Christmas is especially hard.
    I continue to pray for a speedy recovery and for strength for you Loni to get through these challenging days.

    Love in Christ,
