Has it really only been five days since this roller coaster ride began?
It feels like an eternity.
Can I get off now?
Most days you kind of just exist in a fog, driving back and forth from the hospital.
Sitting and staring at your mom who is sedated and now has machines breathing for her when just a week ago she was perfectly fine.
It's been confirmed she has a severe case of pneumonia that is very aggressive and has infected her entire body. She continues to be on a ventilator and started dialysis on Saturday to help her kidneys rid her body of all the toxins left behind from the infection.
Doctors all remain very optimistic she will beat this, it's just going to take a lot of time and patience. They anticipate she will remain in the ICU on the ventilator for at least another 10-12 days.
I've been down at the lake with my dad this week, thankfully work was slow and I could take the time off. I plan on staying here through the weekend and then will head back to KC. Our newest mission is to find Jamie a daycare since it looks like grandma....aka our nanny.....is going to be out of commission for awhile.
Thank you everyone for your continued prayers and support! I will keep you all posted on any updates.
And because this blog could use a little cheering up, who can resist this little face.....
