Abby is still in surgery. Doctor just came in… they are still looking at Abby but they’ve confirmed she has double pneumonia now, and still concerned about possible cystic fibrosis. Her upper airway (throat) is structurally okay but her lungs are totally clogged up. Doc said her lungs don’t look infected at this point but that she is “primed and ready” for a something really bad to happen.
They are admitting her and putting her on antibiotics to hopefully keep any infection from getting a foothold.
We try to remain upbeat and joyful, but honestly, we are pretty weary at this point. It just seems like Abby gets hit with everything that can go wrong. We are up all night with her watching her breathing, giving her medications… the doctors, clinics, insurance, bills, appointments, hospitals just never seem to end or let up. It’s relentless. So many other things go undone, unenjoyed and neglected.
Nonetheless, God is good and cares for our every need. We aren’t hungry, cold or homeless. “Tired” is not comparable to imprisoned, tortured, starving or ate up with disease. We count our blessings which are many.
