A brief Update

First thanks for all the prayers...we need them right now. Lillian has been in Riley since Tuesday and has a virus called human metapneumovirus. She currently is taking a bad turn every evening that gets progressively worse. She is a hop skip and jump from going to the PICU. She cannot keep her O2 levels up and will most likely be on CPAP when I get back to the hospital tonight. I'm home briefly for my 9 year old's birthday party, who btw, is having a vey hard time with all this. I'm trying to stay positive but each night as she worsens I have my worries. I need to have a huge meltdown, but i just don't have time. I'm getting little sleep and Lillian is not sleeping well either. I do not think I'm underestimating if she is not in the hospital at least another week. I am trying to keep her website updated via my sister. You can check on her there at www.halcombfamily.kids.homepagenow.com. I don't have access (well I do) to a computer, but Lillian is very very insistent upon my presence in her room. She's not even being very nice to her Daddy. This is a very hard time. Sorry this is brief, but it's all I have time for right now.

Praying that Lillian gets better soon. Have the meltdown that you need....it will help. I've been there...sometimes a meltdown helps us to be stronger. I hope that her O2 sats get better tonight. Sending hugs to you!
