We haven’t posted since Friday because there hasn’t been a whole lot to say. We’ve been in the hospital with her since Friday evening and will likely be here through tomorrow. I’ve posted small updates on our Facebook page. Tori has been eating better and is much more hydrated. She has slept most of the time we have been in the hospital, so we are praying that the sleep is helping her to heal.
We are so thankful for the support that we have received – all the notes, visits, texts, Starbucks cards, and we are most humbled by the GoFundMe page that was set up for us. We have no idea what we are facing in terms of medical bills on this completely undesirable path, and we know that people want to help us. We are so unbelievably overwhelmed by the love that is being shown to our precious Tori. We have been so well cared for by the nurses here, too.
My dad arrived last night from California, my mom has been here for a week now, and my Uncle Patrick has been here since Saturday morning. Brennan’s family has come to visit as much as they can. These distractions are wonderful.
Right now, we are coping by living a minute at a time. I can’t handle thinking about the possibilities of what might be wrong with our beautiful baby girl. So, I focus on the good things – that she is eating better, that she doesn’t need the IV anymore, that she is sleeping well. If I think about anything else, I break down.
Thank you for your prayers. We believe that God can choose to heal her completely and we are pleading with Him to do so. The knowledge that there are tens of thousands of people all over the world praying for her gives us hope and encouragement.
We will update as we have updates…
