Setbacks

We've had a pretty big setback.

Abby has collected a large amount of fluid around her right lung which is compromising her heart function. She is having a very difficult time breathing and speaking so they have decided to place another drainage tube around 4pm. This means heading back to the ICU where she will be sedated for the tube placement. Not what we like to see 3 days after open heart surgery.

She is begging for water but since she is being sedated she's not allowed to have anything to eat or drink. As a result, she's pretty ticked off with us. Please pray the drainage tube takes care of the problem and that no more hurdles appear.

Many prayers that this drainage tube works. Wish I could be there for you Alison. Much love to you and Abby.

Thinking of you all and especially little Abby.

Hoping, hoping, hoping the tubes help with the fluid build up so she may be back on her way to a speedy recovery. Just remember she is young and resilient (not to mention a little pistol!) :)
