I’ve been updating little blurbs here and there on Nora’s Facebook page: Praying for Nora Rose Yusko. It’s just much easier to update there.
Currently Nora is in CICU at Children’s Hospital with her heart rate elevated up into the 200s and a fever of 105.3°.
She was admitted on Monday with congestion on her lungs and terrible upper respiratory junk. She had a few mild fevers, but nothing like this. Monday she tested positive for RSV and another virus called hMPV, as well as some suspected bacterial pneumonia. The pneumonia is being treated with ampicillin through an IV, the other stuff just has to run its course as it is viral. Nora had been doing well, had been eating GREAT – we even got a couple of smiles here and there.
For some reason, yet undetermined, she spiked the highest fever she’s ever been known to have just this morning around 6 am. The fever has brought her heart rate through the roof. The RSV, hMPV do not typically bring about a high fever like this. More labs have been drawn to check for any other infections. Her chest X-Ray is looking a little worse and she is now on high flow 5 liters of oxygen.
We are hanging out here in the CICU so they can keep an extra close eye on her.
They’ve put something in her nose (trumpet) to assist with suctioning as her little nose was getting pretty agitated. She’s resting peacefully right now. Fever is down to 102.2° and heart rate in 170s. Thank You, God!!!
We appreciate each and every one of your prayers. I am so comforted by all of your messages, texts and emails. I obviously can’t respond to them right now, but I am reading them when I can.
Two people have written to me about dreams they had of Nora in the past couple of nights. In both dreams she was older and talking, very happy. Neither of these people know each other, one has never met Nora (or me) in person YET. I take these very seriously as God-sent messages. Remember Greta’s dream in which He LOUDLY spoke to us with that beautiful glimpse into the future!!!!!!!
From Jesus Calling today:
Softly I announce My presence. Shimmering hues of radiance tap gently at your consciousness, seeking entrance. Though I have all Power in heaven and on earth, I am infinitely tender with you. The weaker you are, the more gently I approach you. Let your weakness be a door to My Presence. Whenever you feel inadequate, remember that I am your ever-present Help.
Hope in Me, and you will be protected from depression and self-pity. Hope is like a golden cord connecting you to heaven. The more you cling to this cord, the more I bear the weight of your burdens; thus, you are lightened. Heaviness is not of My kingdom. Cling to hope, and My rays of Light will reach you through the darkness.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
As always– SPOT. ON. Wow….
