They Said There Would Be Down Days

Today was definitely the bottom of the hill on this roller coaster ride. Kaidyn for sure has pneumonia so she will be on antibiotics for 7-10 days. Along with that comes x-rays daily to check the progress. She also started medicine for her heart murmur, or PDA as they call it. It is a three dose treatment and they will monitor how she responds. Her blood pressure is still not getting as high as they would like, so they added another medication. So much going on in such a tiny body.

We also had a small scare today when her stats started to drop considerably during her hands on. With all that is doing on inside her body she is telling us she wants to be left alone. She is having a hard time recovering after receiving hands on treatment. So it's all a catch 22 at times. She needs and wants to be left alone, but because she is sick and needs her diaper changed she is constantly having to be touched, repositioned, and suctioned.

Please continue to pray. Through all this, that is all any of us can do. When you pray, pray also for the many, many hands that touch her daily and those that make decisions on her treatment. Ask God to soften their touch and strengthen their minds.
