Not out of the woods

Selah's not out of the woods. She's had to have 2 units of blood (transfusion), and they've ordered more. They've also ordered platelets. She's draining a lot of blood from inside her skull. They want to keep her sedated and comfortable, but she keeps waking up and trying to move and cry.

Selah also has a lot of gunk in her lungs, so they're suctioning her breathing tube, which causes her to cough, which causes her to cry.

Seeing Selah in this condition is really hard. It looks so much like Chrissie. The suctioning makes me feel like I'm going to vomit. Matt's stomach is in knots. Has been for a few days.

Please pray for Selah to be comfortable, for her lungs to clear, for her bleeding to slow down, for her to be strong and fight so she can come back to play at Forgotten Saw Ranch as quickly as possible.

God is faithful. He is mighty to save. He is our Rock and our Redeemer. He loves Selah more than we do.
