Thursday, October 17, 2013 Update

Lenah is five weeks old today. Today she had visitors.  Her Grandad Jim, Aunt Michelle and Uncle Joe all came for a visit.  She got more kisses on her sweet little knee.  After they left, Lenah decided to wake up and stare at me for a long while.  She also decided that she likes her pacifier.  She would cry if it came out.

The not so good news is today she had blood in her stools again.  They did an x-ray and did not see any perforation or obstruction of her bowels. But they are still very concerned about her.  They plan to take her off of the ventilator tomorrow.  One of her doctors came by to talk to me about hospice care options for her.  She was so alert an engaged is so hard to think that she might not get over her intestinal issues.  Right now we are still on a day-to-day watch-and-wait basis.  It is all we can do.  Please continue to pray.
