Good night's and Thank you's!

Long and tiring day. Friends and family have reached out and shown up on our door step to support us! Just checked in on baby Ave and all is the same. She is still pretty pale and paralyzed from the surgery(no moving around little one) and they are backing off some meds. Now we wait as she heals,heals and heals! The game plan is to get her rested so we can try to ween off (the monster) Ecmo again. But I guess it has allowed us to see her all of this time. We are excited for tuesday to get here because at 10:30 she will be 3 weeks old!! Kaitlyn will love to give her a mini birthday cake...and I will buy the hats! Good night and God bless-Shane

  14. I am Heidi's Mom and I can remember going through a similar situation with Chad. My heart aches for you. Going on a roller coaster like you have been on brings back so many memories. There are many people praying for you and I know you feel the love from so many people. God never gives us more than we can bear, but I know you are wondering where He is taking you. He has a plan, but sometimes really hard to understand. He will handle this situation in His own way. Please trust in His way to be the best. Sending a hug from a stranger that cares. Vicki

  28. This is a very touching blog. I am a perfusionist from Lubbock, Texas, and work at Women & Children's hospital in the PICU.

    I created a link from our PICU blog to yours, because of the insight your blog offers as well as the possibility of learning from your experiences.

    ECMO is a tough tough road to travel, and the more support one has, the better all the way around.

    God bless you and your family.
