Morning scare

Olivia had a fairly stable night, but had some issues this morning. Ultimately, the final thoughts are that she was under-sedated and her nitric oxide wasn't working properly. They were about 10 seconds away from starting compressions when she decided to come around.

We had a long talk with Olivia's doctor from St. Jude, and he feels like he should have a better idea of her exact diagnosis by later tonight or early tomorrow. He will be checking with Memphis this afternoon.

Otherwise she is pretty stable right now. Regardless, thank you for all the continued prayers today for a quiet and peaceful day.

I am so relieved to read about the successful surgery. I was lying in my bed thinking about you last night, the day you went through and the roller coaster ride that all five of you have been on; and I want you to know that you are thought about often - even though you may not know it. I also think that the two of you have always had that "something special" and that you are doing an amazing job with each other and all three of your children. You are a great family and as your anniversary goes by, I hope you take time to recognize just how great of a job you are doing. - Brooke

God Bless you. I don't know you -- we are "barely" members of the upside group....not very social, I guess! Anyway, or daughter had leukemia.....5years in remission now. But....it was a very tough 8months, especially the first 2 or 3. Hang in there, hang on to God, use all the friends and family who are nuts enough to help out...cry...laugh....know that there is a better tomorrow.
