The Numbers

2 - Very tired parents who just want one night of uninterrupted sleep.

1 - Night booked for two at Della Terra Mountain Chateau for Monday, July 26th.

177 - Days since Faith's last visit to the children's emergency department

2 - Overnight visits to the er in the last 36 hours, the first being on Monday, July 26th.

5 - The number of days Faith has been lethargic, not wanting to walk or even sit up.

10 - The average amount of diapers changed per hour due to this nasty, nasty stomach bug.

5 - Days until Faith undergoes major surgery to reconstruct her airway.

4-10 - The number of days the docs at childrens have seen this G.I. bug wipe kids out.

24 hours - Faith has to turn a corner before the surgery is canceled (their words, not mine).

1 year - The time we'd have to wait for the opportunity for this surgery again (it is only done in summer and the OR is booked solid for the next month).

2 - Very, very tired and sick parents who just want to catch a break.

Oh Jen.... I am so sorry this is all happening like this. I have been meaning to email you in the last few days and haven't gotten around to it. But I will say this: I will be a praying fool that Faith turns that corner and can go ahead with the surgery. You know how to get ahold of me if you need anything, including someone to rant to. I can take it.

Praying like crazy! Love you guys.

Jen, praying that Faith turns the corner within the next 24 hours because, dammit, you and Brian deserve that break. Many positive vibes, healing thoughts and prayers being sent your way.
