Hangin' in there

Olivia is doing better this afternoon. She is very, very sleepy and just looks like she doesn't feel well. The doctors are stumped as to why she has decided to do this...again. It wasn't a reaction to the blood transfusion. She has had a couple of "episodes" so far today. She'll be doing fine and then all of a sudden drop her pressures into the 40's and 50's. So, they pump her up with some albumin and a little calcium and she's fine again for a few hours. They did do an echo to check on her heart function and a chest x-ray, which wasn't really bad at all. I'm kind of hoping they call today with an infection in a line or at least something to explain what's going on. We were doing so stinkin' well!!! Ugh.

We're praying for you guys. Not just that Olivia gets back on track, but also for your strength in these set backs. Sometimes when they are really looking good it just makes it much harder when things take a turn. Christ give you the peace and patience you need in this step of the journey. Kathy
