A Bedtime Update...

Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers...I whispered into Lucy's ear  and told her that so many are praying for her .  She is sleeping with heart rates in the 170's to180's, she continues to have a high fever, and her O2 sats are 100% on the Vapotherm.  Lucy girl please keep your O2sats up tonight, mama is tired and needs to sleep and you need to keep breathing!  Dr. R came by around 8pm to check on our girl, I told him to go home because he was making me nervous hanging around.   He said he is nervous and told me that he will be available tonight in the event that we need him.  We are adding another antibiotic to her already comprehensive list of meds.  We are concerned that she may have a reaction to this antibiotic so we are pre-medicating her with Tylenol and benadryl just to be safe.    We also applied a Lidocaine patch around Lucy's incision site tonight, hoping that by providing pain relief directly to the site we can cut back on some of her dilaudid use.

None of us are sure what is causing Lucy to be so sick, prayers for clarity are once again appreciated.

Oh God, touch this baby and her family. Give them a Christmas miracle in Jesus name, Amen.

Please, please, God, give Lucy strength and help her little body fight off whatever is causing this assault on her body. Help the doctors find the answer and help her parents to also find the strength they so need to help Lucy.
