Lessee. We've Had Blue, Pink...Now Yellow

Zoe has turned yellow on us. Her internal organs went through some shock with her last episode (Sunday's Funfest). Tests show they're working ok, and on their way back, so this is apparently just a bump in the road.

Bump. Bump.

The goal is to get her very stable and numbers good, slowly, carefully wean off the vent, and then extubate. We don't necessarily hear Dr. Musa say extubate tomorrow.

Jen says that her most recent chest x-ray shows something, so Jen would just as soon leave her intubated.

Which sucks. I'm very very bad at looking at my kid hurting or restless or fidgeting with the tube. I have to take a breath before I just pull everything out and take her home.


  1. For the BUMPS in this journey:

    "Along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them."
    Isaiah 42:16

    Praying for the "bumps" and for the heart of a father who loves his little girl soooooooo much. Praying also for Jen as God continues speaking to her mothers heart on Zoes behalf. In Gods time and Zoes time, I pray as we all wait for His plan to be revealed.
    May every decision made bring her closer to being at home with you.

    Laurie in Ca.
