Update 10:45 a.m. Wedensday





We had a GREAT night of sleeping last night - yes 8 hours! We both got showers this morning and are feeling MUCH better. We got here in time for the doctors' rounds so we were glad. The night nurse was really sweet and so good. While we were gone she gave Jordan a sponge bath and cleaned her hair and face a bit. I'm so thankful and appreciative that she took the intiative with that.


- She is still on the ventilator: It's breathing completely for her right now and they don't hear an "air leak" which would tell them that the swelling is going down in her throat (her throat is still swollen tight around the tube). They are hoping to remove the tube today or at least do an exchange tube which is smaller so she can start breathing more on her own. They are starting to use this rubber thing to hit her chest and back to make sure fluid doesn't sit in her lungs which could cause pneumonia. She hates the pounding an moving but did calm down once they laid her back down. They're also changing her position every so often to help with the fluid and the circulation. She likes being more on her side I think.


- Pain: She is now completely off the Fentanyl (spelling?) for pain and I guess they're only giving her the Atavan (spelling? it's an anti-anxiety med to keep her calm) as needed. They want to take the chance of the pain being there because it's more important that she is awake and stimulated to start breathing on her own - even if it comes at the cost of her being a little uncomfortable. I don't love the idea but it seems necessary.


- Nutrition: The plan for now is to start nutrition through the IV (TPN) but the nurse just said it's not good to do that for long. We're hoping that she can be on a bottle soon though. She is, of course, contipated and gassy (that's typical for her) which makes her a little uncomfortable but hopefully that'll get better since she hasn't eaten food since Sunday night.


It's still sad to see her like this and we're ready to get that darn tube out even if we can't get home right away.


Other fun news - our buy is growing up at home without us! He "earned" his giant helicopter today...if you remember, we couldn't get him to go #2 on the big potty so we offered this fantastic giant helicopter (our neighbor, Noreen, gave it to him) if he did it. This morning while we were talking to my mom and to Noah he ran over and did his "business." So funny!!!


The respiratory therapist is here so we gotta run..

Hi, Shan and Jen. I am so touched by today's photos, and it made me so joyful that Jordan had a caring, thoughtful nurse who loved her in practical ways with a sponge bath and a hairbrush. Thank you for keeping us in the loop and allowing our prayers to be specific before our loving Father.

Smith Family said...

You all remain in our prayers!! We also saw the wonderful comments about you on Chiara's Website! You are truly an inspiration and example to us on trusing in the Lord. We pray little Jordan heals quickly and comes home soon! Love and prayers, kel, sean and the boys

You guys remain in our thoughts and prayers and are such an inspiration to us all on how to remain so strong in our Heavenly Father. Thank you for sharing the photos of your beautiful daughther. What a blessing to have such a wonderful nurse. Jordan looks so cute with the bow in her hair...what an angel. We love you guys and pray you will all be home soon! Love the Brett, Tobi, Reef and Merrick

Swimwife said...

we loved seeing you guys yesterday and I know I speak on behalf of everyone when I say it is such a blessing to encourage you in some way. You are such an amazing friend and we just wanted to bless you and lessen the stress of this situation. You are such an amazing testament of the strength the Lord provides for every situation we are in! The Lord's strength is so evident in you! we love you and are continuing to pray for your family! Thanks so much for the updates!
love ~ the woodwards

Way to go, Noah! I LOVE that you have your sense of humor and are able to find laughter in today...

We are praying that God would allow Jordan to breathe on her own and that he would continue to bring hospital staff that are tentative, thoughtful and efficient to care for her.

I'm not sure you were able to retrieve your messages but Talega is safe and there are no evacuations. Some areas have lost power but the fire is still quite a distance away and there are no winds to cause us to be concerned. Your home, Noah and your mom are completely safe.

Love,
Christiane

Glad you were able to get some rest. What a difference that can make on one's outlook. Still praying.
