Hospital Update 4/19/08

April 19, 2008

It has been a rocky couple of days. My dad was placed back on the ventilator for the past two days and then taken off yesterday afternoon. Seemed to be stable. Taken off the vent and then placed back on again last night. This is such a scary time for all of us. Please continue to keep him in your prayers and thoughts. It is hard to see someone who is usually so vibrant and energetic struggling to breathe. My sisters are here and it is good to have us all together. Yesterday was my 35th birthday. It wasn't the birthday I had hoped for...my birthday wish was for some dramatic improvement. Just isn't happening. Adam has been such a big support for all of us. I know he is exhausted between spending every minute in the ICU...intrepreting for us, meeting with the staff, on the phone with specialists,etc. We have all been taking shifts with the kids and yesterday some amazing women from my on-line book club took the kids for the day (and also suprised me with birthday pastries and gifts...thank you Corinne, Kellie, and Cami). We appreciate all of the continued support and prayers. I'll try to update the blog now that we have internet access in the hotel.

Thanks for the update. We love you and are praying for your dad. Please tell your dad(because I know he hears you and knows your presence) that I love him and have faith in his amazing strength. Patience is hard, but God has perfect timing. Call me anytime to talk. I wish so very much I could be there to help with Noah and Camille and any other needs! Will chat with you soon. Love and prayers, Jill and family

I'm so glad those lovely ladies from The Nook were able to add some brightness to a tense day. :]
