at Childrens...

Hi Friends (:

What do I get for not posting all week??? An ambulance ride to the hospital! I'll backtrack a little... Evie's eye appointment went great - thank you for praying. No obvious signs of pressure, Praise God. Thursday we went to the pediatrician, Eve was up all night coughing, and her congestion was just unbearable. They put her on amoxicillin because she probably had a sinus infection.

Today we went to UNMC for her routine treatment injection... shot went fine, vitals went fine... left at about 5:15 (just in time for rush hour), and she suddenly got really upset about 5 minutes into the drive, it sounded like SCREAMING, SCREAMING, SCREAMING, SILENCE............... so I pulled into the nearest business, took a look at her and she wasn't purple, and not breathing.
After I called 911, got her inside and gave her a few breaths, the fire and rescue squad was there to take her to the hospital. After they got her breathing again she has been doing okay.

Long story short, they think she may have aspirated some of her nasal congestion into her lungs... or possibly vomited a little and aspirated it. For now they are calling it pneumonia and have her on some heavy duty IV antibiotics and IV fluids. She is going to see a pulmonologist tomorrow to check out her lungs and belly and see what they think.

We will probably be here for a few days. Thank you for praying friends, our God is so good and I thank him for every blessed day with my Evie Jayne and my Lyla. I have had to retell our "history" every time a new doctor comes into see her, and it is a good reminder of how incredibly BLESSED we are to have this precious girl in our lives. It's always interesting when they say "did you have a normal pregnancy?" ... I don't even know where to start besides to say that she is the definition of answered prayer.

Well I better get some sleep!

LOVE you!

  3. Your strength is amazing. You and your family are in my prayers.

  4. I'd gotten behind on reading Evie's story. I'm catching up now, and we were admitted to Children's the same night you were. How funny to know we were so close. I'm glad you were able to think clearly and act fast! Prayers for you all.
