She had to go to the er by ambulance and is now in picu on a vent due to either aspirated vomit from the stomach big the others had or rsv. The are being as hopeful as they can..... But there is only a medium chance better if we make 48 hours

They said best case we will be vented for 10 days and our kids were all screaming when I left in ambulance with her

we are at 80% on the vent and mixing nitrous to make it 73% and she stating 90. But we now have two arrterial lines and hopefully the vent can come down a little more...... three thoughts....1) H1N1 2) RSV or sudden onset pneumonia due to aspirating vomit (two others had vomit this week) but it is not behaving lke pnuemonia and reacting like the expect to antibiotics and our adoption team is checking to see if we can get a judge to come and finalize our adoption if necessarry instead of wait to assigned date cause I do not want her to go to heaven without a real name..... it that is the case they are te...lling us 50/50 which is better than last night!

I guess that is better..... it is wait out.... but none of them know how stong our girl is! How amazing she is....... but it was very hard to be asked whether to intubate or not and this time knowing that if Eric or chose not to she would die......

She has a fighting chance now and this gil has been fighting since the day she was born! She will show them!

she is down to 65% and tolerating the vent dop well and they will take another cest film and see how lungs look and what is going on.

Our judge signed her adoption papers so she is officially Sarah Emmaline Grace Smith as of 1:30 pm this afternoon and she is not alone or and orphan if the wost happened.... we will still go back to court when she is all better and do it again but we have them in case of the worst thing which I cried for houses about as they sewed thos lines in last night.....it was scheduled for late Dec but we passed our 6 months and all other stuff was done.

She is fighting more than they though and surprising them all! Not me though!

They are still saying 7 - 10 dyas on the vent but now they are being much more hopeful......

and to my wonderous surprise.... or maybe I just needed this ...... a beautiful young woman with DS cleaned the table next to me in the cafe this am....... and her friend was cleaning the hallway...... dutifully and gainfully employed adults that made me feel like there was hope and I will tell them all how much this ment to me later.

I spoke to her she said that she is supposed to expidite her work..... she was just confused on expidite....and I told her usually it meand speed up and do well at same time but for today just being there was enough to make this mom's whole day! She miled and waved...... she said she would like to hug me but it is not allowed and I said I knew why and told her she was amazing and thanks........

it made my whole situation a little better and I loved telling Sarah about it when I came back up!

I love this girl!

Jane, I had no idea! I must have missed all this. Lots of prayers for your little doughnut! I know she is VERY strong and has already overcome major odds and has surprised everyone. She will keep doing that. Hugs for you and lots of prayers for her.

We'll keep praying for your Sarah Emmaline Grace - keep fighting!

Those things like meeting the girl in the cafe - they seem to happen just when you need them.

Well we are doing somewhat better again today though they are having to sedate her like an elephant...... that much would knock out most adults.....

we get to pull out the NG tube they put in and down through her stomach and into the insetine and estart some feeds in tummy today.....

but her temp is still fluctuating but we are about to start the wean out of the nitrous and then after that....... maybe the vent by the middle of the week unless she is a shining star and then sooner....... but but but she is doing amazing!!!! SHe keeps trying to pull it out on her own!

Though amazing is a relative term ....but for me inbetween the tears it is still better!.

Met another angel this am waiting on his job and his friends with cp...... they told me they were always diving their parents and teachers nuts and spitting and throwing tantrums or so when they were little in school..... but they are mature now..... gave me a little more hope for my hell raisers!
