Back on the Vent

Well, just when we start to think things are getting better, they take a turn for the worse.  Again.  It seems as though Carla's lungs are bleeding.  It's either that or her throat, but they are suctioning a lot of blood out of her lungs and they are filling up fast after she has been suctioned.  So, the doctors stopped her Heprin this morning (blood thinner) and this afternoon they decided that she needed to be back on the ventilator.  So, they are reintubating her right now.

On a good note, she was being kind of cute and acting like herself this afternoon.  It was so nice to see her starting to come back to life...

Please pray for healthy lungs, heart and brain...

And thank you for being on this roller coaster ride with us.

Love, Jen

We are praying for you and Carla daily, even though I don't think you know us. We are Jessica's grandparents and we have an idea what you are going through.
May the Lord keep you and bless you through this time of trial. And may the Holy Spirit comfort you and give you peace.
In His Love,
Gary and Emmy

I hope they can figure it all out soon and get your girl on her way to recovering. Lots of prayers.

Oh Jen, I'm sorry this has been such a roller coaster. Please know that we continue to pray for sweet Carla.

I'm hoping to come up this week and visit my friend Sarah and her little Nina, who's on ECMO right now. I would love to be able to connect with you as well!
