Update on day #5 in hospital

Just wanted to give everyone an update on Luella. We are still in the hospital and will be for at least another day or two. She is doing better. A little more alert and playful, but still quite tired and wanting to nap often. She can go most of the day without added oxygen but still needs it to sleep. Today for some reason she is needing a little more O2 than yesterday. She did finally eat a little bit yesterday and a little at lunch and supper today but it is still a struggle. I had to bribe her today with little segments of Elmo's World for each bite she took!

Luella has had a couple sessions with a respiratory therapist working to get her to use her lungs. Luella really enjoys blowing the bubbles!

I'm thankful that Jim has been able to be here to help some of the time. And so thankful to those who have been helping with the other kids!!

We appreciate all the thoughts and prayers from everyone. If you are in the area and want to visit, just email me and I'll give you details.

  1. Heather--sorry I don't comment often but please know that we think of you all SO much! I was really hoping that you guys would be able to be outta there by now. We were in the outpatient world today for a spinal tap but I am trying my best to keep Ty as far away from the respiratory stuff out there as possible. Praying for you guys!!
