As Time Goes On

This hospital stuff is hard. I wonder how parents who have to do this all of the time actually survive. We've met a few different people, who have much more difficult trials than we do. Puts things into perspective. We are blessed. We have the Gospel. We have felt so much love and support in this hard time.

Jordyn is doing about the same. We have good moments and bad. She had a feeding tube put in her nose today. They had to put her to sleep to do it. She is using a CPAP mask right now. Before she had a BiPAP mask. They doctor said they worked differently, but one is not better than the other. She was using a regular mask for awhile today but it just seems like after a few hours she can't get the oxygen that she needs. From what I understand the BiPAP/CPAP makes help push air in and also pull it out. She need this because Pneumonia makes it hard to breath in and the Asthma makes it hard to breath out. We're just taking it all one day at a time.

It's night now: I wrote all of that other stuff this afternoon. It's about 10:30. Things are still the same with Jordyn. She's been sleeping a lot more today but they keep telling us she's looking really good.

I'm tired. It's hard to see her like this. It's hard to feel helpless. It's hard to see Jason feeling stressed and helpless. We're just plugging along. I keep asking people what day it is. We've only been here for 2 nights (and then tonight) and it seems like it has been forever. Right now they say we're looking at Wednesday to go home. Wednesday. Seems like forever.

Ugh! I'm so sorry! I hope things goes smoothly (as smoothly as possible) and she can get better so you can all go home! We will be praying for you all!

We are praying for all of you. We are so blessed to have a place like Primary Children's Hospital. But it is so hard to see your child ill and feel so hopeless to make her better. Get some rest and take care of yourself.

Sara, you and your sweet baby girl are definitely in my thoughts and prayers! Ugh as a Mother that's the worst thing to have to watch your child hurt. My heart goes out to your little family. I hope Jordyn gets better quick!!!
