Yet again. Yet again. [Dec. 26th, 2013|02:17 pm]
Previous Entry Add to Memories Share Next Entry
My 6-year-old grand-niece Brianna was life-flighted to the hospital on Christmas Eve with sudden seizures. As of this morning, she is still intubated and sedated, and while they think this was a febrile seizure, they don't really have any answers as to what's going on. My niece Dayna, who herself spent three days in the hospital last week with some terrible rash all over her lower body and chest pains, has been there all night for two nights now. Her husband is with their two little boys, trying to keep things together at home.

My poor sister has endured both her daughter and grand-daughter being hospitalized in the last week, our stepdad, to whom she was closest among us, dying, and caring for Mom, who has to be taken on a 130 mile round trip three days a week for dialysis. It's been a hard year for me, but an even harder one for her.

My poor mother, widowed at the beginning of December, ended up spending her first Christmas without her husband of three decades almost completely alone because she is not healthy enough to go up to the hospital.

The doctors tried to get Brianna awake last night, but couldn't. They're trying this morning, and though she did squeeze her mom's hand earlier on, her fever started spiking again.

I am stuck in a continuing legal education class, continually updating Facebook and checking my phone. If you pray, please pray for Brianna and her whole family.
