I guess we’ve been in here 2 weeks now according to my post titles. Who knew?
Nora had a decent night last night and a good day today. She’s still struggling with her gag reflex’s terrible aversion to tubes, but overall it was a nice peaceful day.
We opened the blinds this morning and let the sun rain down on her. She really got a kick out of it!
Nora slept for most of the day, but we did get a few more smiles from her. I can’t even stand how sweet that is to see that little bit of joy radiating from behind all of the tape and tubes. She is beyond precious.
Tomorrow they will be doing an ultrasound of the fluid mass that was discovered on her left lung during the CT scan. We need prayers that it has shrunk, or reveals itself as obviously harmless. I will be so bold as to pray that it has altogether DISAPPEARED. We are also praying that her NG tube can be removed. Any relief she can get in her poor tiny throat would probably be much appreciated!
Little heart-shaped droplet of blood on Nora’s arterial line dressing that occurred during her blood transfusion this afternoon. Someone else’s blood that was donated to heal my child. Yes, that is love. Thank you!
