In case you guys had not heard, we are back in the hospital with Lilly Grace. I am posting this from a borrowed laptop at the Medical Center. Lilly started wheezing, coughing, struggling to breathe again on Sunday and we were up with her most of the night Sunday and brought her into the ER early Monday morning where she was admitted.
Her chest X-Rays show walking pneumonia (microplasm) and bronchitis which is worsened by asthma as well. This is the first time any physician has actually used the diagnosis of asthma to describe her, so I guess she's joining Mommy and Big Brother in having asthma.
Throughout the day today, her oxygen saturation levels have been up and down, but they have been giving her breathing treatments round the clock, as well as hooking her up to oxygen, and giving her steroids, antibiotics and fluids in her IV. She's being good natured about most of it, but she had a really hard time having the IV put in.
Anyway she is a pretty sick little lady but she is also very tired of having to be confined to a bed and an IV cart. It's getting very challenging trying to keep her still especially when she's pumped up with so many steroids.
Anyway, say a little prayer for Lilly tonight, we are hoping she starts turning around soon. Dr. Simmons is not really hopeful that she will get to come home tomorrow but she is thinking maybe the day after that.
Until then we are missing our own beds and showers and most of all missing Noah! But he sent his sis a new blanket and baby doll, and he and Nana and Papa are holding down the fort at home!
PS Thank you guys for everyone who has called or visited, we truly appreciate it!
