Chrissie is doing well with her sats, but she's having more pain now. I think she's building up a tolerance with the pain meds. She's also metabolizing through the sedatives and pain meds rapidly, but increases in meds drop her blood pressure too low. I am leaving for the first time in I don't know how long (I left for a few hours last Friday), and my mom, Chrissie's Nana, is staying by Chrissie's side while I enjoy some time with our other kiddos.

You probably won't hear much from me today, unless there's an emergency prayer need. Please pray for Chrissie to be pain-free and as comfortable as possible. Also pray that she'll remember and trust that Mommy will never leaave her! (That's always been a huge worry for Chrissie since she was abandoned by her birth mother at the hospital when she was a baby.) pray for Chrissie's lungs to heal and no infection.

And thank you all so much for your outpourings of donations to our family. You all amaze me and are blessing us in so many ways. Indescribable gratitude. Thank you!

Praise God that things are going so well!

Lorraine, I thought of you when I read this devotion today. http://www.harvest.org/devotional/archive/devotion/2010-05-01.html Your hope, attitude, and faith have been so encouraging as you share this journey and witness to so many. If you need to take some time with God, it would be a great read for you!

I know we have never met, but I attend Ecclesia in Austin, and our whole congregation has been and will continue to be praying for Chrissie!

Hospitals are expensive, even if you were looking for help with funds as your first goal (which I know you are not) I still don't think that would be awful. Praise God for those who are helping you.

Oh well, hey! said...

Thankful we haven't heard from you - trust and pray that you had a wonderful day with your family. Tell your bossy girl to keep up the hard work. Will send special prayers for pain relief.
