Another dip in the rollercoaster

We received another middle of the night phone call. Faith is back on the ventilator. Her nurse held her for hours last night trying to calm her down- she just couldn't do it anymore. She was working too hard to breathe. They put her on the vent to avoid what happened last week. This is beginning to wear on us- she was doing so good until she had to have the eye surgery. Today she is 37 weeks old- we have never seen a baby in the NICU that has been on the vent this long- please, please pray that her airways will heal- we do not want Faith to have to go through another surgery!

Guys I know this is SO frustrating to you and wearing on you. Hang in there and dont stop believeing that God will take care of this temporary set-back! Her lungs just need a little more time thats all. God KNOWS exactly when the time is right. I am so sorry for this "rollercoaster" you are on, it saddens me that I can't be there to take some of this away! My heart is up and down with yours and I cant imagine what or how y'all feel. I only know that you two and your love is what Faith looks forward to everyday. Its your voice that she knows and comforts her. Hang tough guys and KNOW GOD IS WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES and is WITH FAITH!
I will check on you later.

Love you
Aunt Susan
