oh the ups and downs...

Hello Friends (:

Hmmm how do I describe today.... well up and down. The best news is that Evie got off the ventilator this morning around 10:30. She did great all day, with a few bumps in the road when we were suctioning her.

About 8pm tonight she really got the shakes... it is bizarre but she has her eyes wide open, is flailing one arm around, and kicking her legs. She just can't fall asleep, and they think she is going through withdrawal from the narcotics they had her on when she was ventilated. She was on pretty heavy narcotics for the 8 days she was on the vent and now they just have to get out of her system. Hopefully she will settle down soon or it's going to be a long night. I might just park it in her crib so I can re-bink her every time her binky falls out. (:

She has lost her voice from the vent so I can't even really tell when she's crying, it just sounds like loud hissing. I feel so bad for my poor baby. But she is getting better. I need to keep remembering that.

Thanks for praying, I am getting to be a high maintenance friend with all of my requests! I appreciate your prayers, love, and caring for us.

Love you, Lindsey


  1. Thank you for updating us Lindsey. I am always wondering to myself what you are doing and how things are going for you guys.

  2. Thinking about you constantly and praying hard that things start to get a little easier and you can get little Evie home!

  3. I'm sure no one feels you are a high- maintenance friend. It is such a privilege to be able to pray for all of you!
    Sending healing prayers your way... Claudia Gille
