Good morning day 11.
Good morning Wyandotte. Yes, we are still at Wyandotte Hospital. I was able to capture some quality sleep at home while Ted and Amanda attempted sleep in good ‘ole roo m 219. Amanda is a bit more energized today. Her CO2 came down this morning – Yay – so that means her lungs are finally blowing off CO2 which makes her much more alert. She hasn’t ordered breakfast yet but made the nurses laugh at her early morning snack of diet pepsi (she prefers coke) and Cheetohs. Breakfast of champions.
I need to get Ted home. He needs a shower and some sleep. I can tell he’s sleep deprived because he starts talking too much. The doctors or nurses come into the room and he just talks and talks and talks … blah blah blah … the morning doctor was being friendly and commenting to Amanda about the balloons people brought her and Ted starts “Did you know there is a helium shortage?” “TED!” I scream in my head while I give him the look. “Well helium costs more …. and 30% of it is manufactured by the U.S. government …. and President Obama …. ” Ted continues. Oh dear Lord. I hope he goes home soon.
The neurosurgeon is waiting for Amanda at Children’s Hospital and all the paperwork is done for the transfer. We are still waiting for a bed to become available. I guess the huge flu outbreak has caused quite an overload in hospitals everywhere. So, we wait our turn.
I know God’s plan is perfect. I know His timing is perfect. One day, one decision, one step at a time.
Thank you for reading – for your care, prayers, and support.
