A Few Pictures

I've been wanting to post some of the pictures from this wild adventure. I'm sitting her with Jordyn, it's 11:00pm, and she sound asleep. Jason went home to be with Tessa tonight. This is the first night I've been alone at the hospital. It's a little strange and scary. The last few days has been crazy. Every time I update someone I usually start with, "What day is today, Saturday? Is it Saturday." It's strange to feel totally out of it.

Here's Jordyn when we first got to American Fork. Her oxygen levels dropped so quickly that they ended up flying her up to Primary Children's around 10:30. That was the hardest thing I think I've done so far as a my baby fly away in a helicopter while I was left on the ground, with an hour drive.At Primary Children's we ended up in the PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit). Jordyn has been a trooper. She has been pocked and moved a million times and she is still so brave.

During all of the crazy times with Jordyn we still had our sweet Miss Tessa with a crazy life of her own. Thursday she got her cast. Jason said it was fun taking her. And by fun I think he meant "fun" which really isn't fun at all. Plus, Friday she went to the doctor and he told us she had pneumonia like symptoms. He started her on the same stuff as Jordyn and so far she is doing great.Today Jordyn improved a ton. She was a little bit clingy today. She wanted me to sit with her a lot, and hold her hand. She kept asking if she could eat. But, she stayed on a regular mask all day and it was awesome.Now, tonight, they changed her to a nasal cannula and she is doing super. They say she is looking awesome. Now we're doing Albuteral treatments every 2 hours and when she can make it to every 4 hours they will let her leave the PICU and move to a regular room.

I can tell you that the only way I've made it though all of this is with the love and support of everyone who knows us. We've been so blessed and felt so loved. Jordyn is one lucky little girl to have so many people praying for her. Jason and I also feel very lucky. It's incredible. Really. So, I won't ever be able to say this enough, but THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of our friends and family members who have helped us in the tough time.

Sarah- these pictures break my heart. It is so hard to watch your kids go through this kind of stuff- I always wished I could take over for them and go through it and let them go home :) You have such sweet little girls! We are keeping you all in our prayers. Hang in there <3

Breaks my heart to see her so helpless, but excellent news that she is continuing to progress. Please let me know if I can come up and watch Tessa or bring you guys dinner! We're still praying for you all!
