Wednesday, February 27 my 4 month old grand-girl was admitted to the hospital with RSV (Respiratory syncytial virus). For an adult this often shows up with cold like symptoms. For an infant it can be life threatening.
After less than a day in a regular room E was moved to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit to spend the next 4 days. Needless to say it was a time of prayer and believe it or not, great hope that all was to be well soon.
E had great doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, nurse techs, and the greatest prayer warriors. Their care and always optimistic attitude made E and the family's stay at the hospital smoother.
E was moved back to a regular room where Sunday (yesterday) she was released to go home. She is one happy camper.
Mom and Dad are happy beyond words. Mimi is so grateful to all my friends who prayed, emailed, and left messages on Facebook. For 10 of the days I pulled the night shift with my daughter at the hospital. I am very tired and I have enjoyed my day of rest Sunday and Monday.
Here are a few photos. I can't wait to share with you some of the great work that goes on at the Children's Hospital.
One of the few times she was awake in PICU.
Our happy girl just a day or so before being released from the hospital.
I can't wait to tell you the stories about E and her sister while she was in the hospital. E doesn't look happy but she really was excited to be home with her big sister!
Thanks for the all prayers and for your patience while I was away.
Have a Crafty Day!
