Sophia Update

Thank you for the prayers!!! She is home and I truly believe it is because you were all praying!


Last night around 6:30, I decided she needed to go to the ER. I was planning on taking her to her pedi this morning but she couldn't wait. She was having more and more trouble breathing, and honestly she doesn't complain enough, she was worse than I thought. 

So Peter took her to a closer hospital, Kent County. I figured they would give her a breathing treatment, Albuteral and probably a steroid. Take an x-ray call it pneumonia and send her home. 
I was correct on all counts except the, send her home part. They couldn't keep her oxygen levels up and they couldn't see anything in her x- rays so they wanted her to go by rescue to Hasbro Children's. I do believe they were passing the buck. But I also appreciate the fact that they were sending her into more qualified hands, and did not want to risk sending her home.

Anyway we said no to the rescue and Peter took her himself. He stopped at home first, which is on the way to the other hospital. I didn't go because I didn't feel comfortable leaving Olivia alone with the little ones so late at night. It was already after 11:00 pm.  That was not easy. We were absolutely expecting her to be admitted. and I so wanted to be with her. Thank God for a great Dad, that's all I can say.

Big surprise! At 2:00 this morning she was home!! They sent her home with all the "goods", and we can take care of her here. What a welcome surprise that was. And again, it's because of prayer, thank you!!!!!

What good news! I hope she can recovery quickly and quietly at home. I'm sure it was tough for you to not be with her, but it is nice to know our husbands are even more alike than what we previously discussed. Mine can drive me insane during the ordinary times, but when the cookie starts to crumble he is absolutely magical. Continued prayers today for lovely Sophia.

So glad she didn't get admitted. I am sure it is because they could tell she was in capable hands at home. So glad the prayers worked!! Did she get the day off of school today :)
