Day 101: not so great

Ok...hmm...where to start. Ever since Faith extubated two weeks ago she has not been sounding good. She is very striderous. You can hear her gasp for air. Today it was evident she is tiring out when she wouldn't take a bottle (she was fed by a feeding tube for the first time in a week today). Tomorrow a specialist from the Children's Hospital is coming to do a Bronchostomy to see what the problem is. When he looked at her last month her airway was swollen and had a flap that was making it difficult for her to breathe. Faith may need a surgery to widen her airway. This surgery is called a Cricoid Split. The surgery basically widens her airway. Yes, she would need to go back on the ventilator for the surgery, and would require a week or more to recover (also on the vent). We are going to pray that Faith won't need this surgery- that the Doctor will see that her airway is healing. If she does end up needing it, this should solve the problem. The Bronch is scheduled for tomorrow morning.
Thanks for the prayers,
Brian and Jen

Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
Psalm 25:4-5

Blessings and Wisdom to all involved with Faith and her care. Rest your heart and head in HIS loving arms.

I pray the Lord assigns a wonderful doctor and finds her airways are healing and IF she needs the surgery, I pray to have Jesus guide his/her hands to make it successful and Faith wont be on the vent long at all and will be able to come home soon!

It is HIS timing and its always perfect!

You guys are amazing and such and inspiration!
