I wish I could say there was a big change with little Elle. She is doing OK, nothing worse happening. She vascilates between stable and poor blood pressures, labs,and ventilator peak pressures but she is still fighting fungi.
Her dad did her head gear today. I guess that is turning into quite a task as is her body dressings. I really do try to think of the positives too, but right now I guess I am mentally tired and worried and tired of being worried. I can't leave her tonight and I need to get myself to bed. We are okay though, just wishing we could do more to help her and to hasten healing. Thank you everyone for your thoughts, prayers, and insight. She is quiet and comfortable right now, so I think sleep is on the horizon for me.
I want to share something that happened at church back home today. We have a pretty large congregation, yet during the healing children's message, more than one child stated that they wanted to pray for Baby Elle and one said, "...she has a really, really bad cold and we pray every day for her to get better".
|This was Elle's resident, Maggie. She had to move on to her next rotation :( We sure like her! She cares a lot about Elle.|
