After a very long and trying day, we are back in the comforts of our "home away from home", another prayer answered! When we learned from Dr. O that the stent came out with relative ease you could almost see the huge weight of relief come off of our chests. We took a deep breath, and have been breathing just a little easier ever since.
We have learned to plan for the worse and hope for the best, its just they way things happen in our life. Our preparations paid off once again, bumps happened along the road all day today, but miracle of all miracles we were able to keep Lucy on med schedule including arriving back at DuPont in time to change TPN at 8:30pm! Those of you who have had the pleasure of assisting with Lucy's care have to be amazed by this cause I know I am :).
Lucy's pain has increased as the night has gone on, we are going to do our best to try and stay on top of it throughout the night. Labs are ordered for the morning, we are going to be monitoring her closely for pancreatitis.
I really want to shout out to all of you who have helped our family during these oh so many trying times and say a very heart felt thank you! Thank you for loving and caring for our family like you do, and for taking care of our children like they are your own. Thank you for all of the meals and groceries, and for offering to do what seems like the smallest gestures that make such a HUGE difference in our everyday life. We thank you for your love and support, thoughts and prayers! We could NEVER do this alone and we are so very very thankful that we do not have to.
