Closer to getting home...




Hi everyone.

We came in this morning after sleeping at the Holiday Inn (thanks to the Seagers!!!) and the nurse had Jordan out of bed and was holding her. She was basically sitting up and he said that he had walked her around the floor because he thought she was bored. So cute. She doesn't seem to fall asleep unless we're holding her but she did sleep the whole night last night until 7:30 this morning thankfully. She also took another full bottle today already.


We're waiting for the docs to make rounds and let us know if we can go home. Our nurse said not to get our hopes up because they don't usually discharge from ICU. They usually have to send the patient out to the regular floor for a night. :( I want to go home so badly, especially considering the fact that she is doing so well. She's not smiling or playful but she is definately doing much better.


Last night the Fieldhouses came to visit so Jordan could see her little girlfriend, Tessa. Tessa has recovered from her surgery two weeks ago and even thought to bring Jordan a turtle balloon with bandaids on its face, leg and arm. So cute! The girls were just staring at each other and Tessa just kept smiling. She was trying really hard to cheer Jordan up. Oh it was adorable!


Okay we'll let you all know as soon as we do when we'll be home.

I love how you are sharing with all of us God's goodness and kindness through the blessings of friends and loved ones. The story of the turtle balloon with bandaids is so sweet and thoughtful.

I wanted to forward you this message from Nonie. Also, Heidi sends her love, thoughts and prayers.

Can NOT wait to see you all so very soon (in His perfect timing...)
Love,
Christiane

Hi Jen & Shan,

Here is another try. I have tried to post notes, but for some reason they don't go through!

We have been praying for all of you, and praise God for the wonderful progress that Jordan has been making! I have really enjoyed her slide show, too!!

I would really like to help you out after you get home, like maybe an evening out for you and Shan while I babysit.

We love you and thank God for your wonderful witness and strength that we know can only come from the Lord!

Love,

Nonie & Bruno
