It gets very long entertaining a 21 month old who can not move more than 2 feet while connected to a ventilator, oximeter, j-tube and IV tubing. And....she loves to move. When she is bored, she pulls on all of the cords coming for her little body--it created for a very busy and exhausting hospital stays. Always about "day 5" during a hospital stay, I feel like I could cry at the drop of a hat.
I am trying to remind myself that I will be walking out of that hospital with my little girl regaining her health...other parents will leave that same hospital with empty arms. Some families have struggled for months as their preemies struggle to grow and develop. My two week stint at the hospital is minimal in comparison.
Today, I will be thankful for the healing that is taking place in Maisy's little body...and I will pray for those families who are walking this same path.
Tyler left for South East Asia this morning...despite getting a flat tire on the way to the airport with no cell phone in hand. He walked home at 3:45am this morning so that Mark could drive him to the airport. Not like he could knock on some one's door at that time of the night. Mark had all of the kids and had to pile them in the van at 4:30 am and head off to the airport! What a week it has been for all of us!
