Hospital – Day 5?

I have no idea what day it is or how long we’ve been here but by looking back at yesterday’s blog post. Sleep deprivation has caught up.

Just wanted to let those of you who aren’t on Nora’s Facebook page know that over all she’s doing well. She’s had a few critical moments — as I stated on FB:

Nora is doing well. She’s having some airway issues because of mucus but it’s under control. She has 2 tubes down her throat and her body is producing mucus to get rid of them, as they are foreign objects. They are going to try for extubating tomorrow or Saturday. Overall the doctors seem to be very pleased with her progress. Please pray that she can make the transition off of the ventilator smoothly when ever that might be!

I’m sorry for the silence. My adrenaline batteries are LOW.


From Jesus Calling today:

May 22

When things don’t go as you would like, accept the situation immediately. If you indulge in feelings of regret, they can easily spill over the line into resentment. Remember that I am sovereign over your circumstances, and humble yourself under My mighty hand. Rejoice in what I am doing in your life, even though it is beyond your understanding.

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. In Me you have everything you need, both for this life and for the life yet to come. Don’t let the impact of the world shatter your thinking or draw you away from focusing on Me. The ultimate challenge is to keep fixing your eyes on Me, no matter what is going on around you. When I am central in your thinking, you are able to view circumstances from My perspective.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
—1 Peter 5:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
—John 14:6

  1. Hospital time is a joy isn’t it? /sarcasm

    I found your blog via someone else and I wanted to tell you that I’ve got some empathy for the hospital stay. My son was born at 29.5 weeks, has developmental delays, is autistic, and hasn’t met a respiratory virus that he hasn’t wanted to befriend. We know the ER at UCD Medical Center incredibly well and we’ve spent a month there cumulatively over the last 3 years (in addition to 2 months in other hospitals).

    Hang in there, mama! You totally have got this.

  2. I am so happy that Nora is doing a little better. You are amazing parents! God is with you and He is in control and will take care of Nora and give you strength. My prayers will continue for all of you. God bless you!

  3. This is my first visit here and as another Mama of a “special” daughter, I know that I lose my mind when I am in the hospital with my girl. Days blend into one another and all you want to do is pick up your girl and go home. Nora is beautiful and you are one very blessed Mama. Please know that my family will be lifting yours in prayer. Blessings and Grace form one special needs family to another…Mary @
