Yesterday was the most terrifying day of our lives. We thought we were going to lose our precious girl several times. She had to be resuscitated at least 10 times. Each time her heart rate would flatlined and she would turn gray. She is back on the ventilator. It is funny how your priorities change- before he despised the ventilator, now that it is keeping her alive, we love it. Faith's lungs look ok, she has something blocking her airways. Her airways are swollen, but the doctors think there is a larger problem that was causing her such extreme breathing difficulties. One idea is that there is something blocking her airways, like a growth or something that became inflamed form the vent tubes. If this is the case they will "zap" whatever it is with a laser. Another idea is that there is a narrowing in her airways. If this is the case she will need a tracheotomy. They are going to do a procedure today where they stick a camera down her airways to see what is going on. We really appreciate all of your prayers during this time. We are on our knees and pleading for the life of our precious miracle. Or as Brian said, this is just one more chapter in her book titled, "Why my name is Faith."
