That we are STILL HERE!! You can interpret that positively or negatively. Yes, we are still here, but we are STILL HERE! My little daughter Mia is something else. She has been spiking fevers of 104 degrees for the past two days. All of her cultures are coming back negative, but she has been on antibiotics and they think whatever she has is being masked by the antibiotics. They run many weekly test on her. One test which measures heart function (bnp) was 4000. Normal numbers would be anywhere from 1-100. One of the nurses informed me that in all of her nursing career she has never seen a number that high. Awesome! Mia really likes to break records. I am continually amazed at her ability to beat the odds. It has been a difficult week with her fevers, and heart rate at 220, but she is finally resting.
On the Thank you front- I am super behind. My husband mentioned that I have great friends- and he is right!! I am so lucky that I am not in this alone. The best women I know have been cooking, bake saling(is that a word?), tending, homeschooling, sewing, driving my children to me, taking my kids to piano /preschool,and calling the ICU all the time to keep me company. When I came back from the wedding I had many packages waiting for me. So many of my new heart mommy friends and long time friends are spoiling me. I really appreciate everyone's love and concern as I go through this crazy time. Oh, and I have watched a few wedding videos- thank you for responding to my request.
Me and Mia- we have been spending a lot of time together :-) We need a heart! Boy do we need a heart.
