Fall 2013

Thursday, May 31, 2012


Maia did pretty better than I anticipated overnight. She slept pretty comfortably and only required extra pain medication once or twice (I can't remember... brain mush - lol). This morning, she's a little irritable but awake and watching Cat in the Hat which is one of her favorite shows.

She is doing well enough to leave the ICU today (YAY, although I wish I could bring some of the nurses and doctors with us). We are waiting to hear if the transfer will be to the general care pediatric unit or the rehab unit. One of the docs who was just in said it may be Monday before she would go to rehab. Please pray that they will be able to take her today, I truly think it would be so much better for Maia to begin that therapy as soon as possible. God's in control and He knows where we will move to so I have to remember to trust His plan.

I'll update once we know more, waiting for the different teams to round this morning so it will be a few hours, I'm sure.


  1. Praise the Lord that she is doing so well. Thank you Heavenly Father that she had a good night's sleep. Praying about the rehab and continued healing. Believing for miracles for Maia. I know how hard it is to leave the nurses from ICU, that was a very difficult transition for myself when my husband left ICU. I will be praying for the transition for you and Mark. God is in control and He is more than able to take care of Maia and your situation. Give it all to Him. Keep your eyes on Jesus not on the storm going on around you. Sometimes when things are overwhelming for me or high anxiety I repeat Jesus name over and over and over until I calm down. This is how I meditate and it soothes me.

  2. Just wanted to say I'm continuing in prayer. And also to let you know that your playlist of songs has been a real blessing to me. Love your selection. They are so right on!

  3. Prayers continue... please have Mark call me as to where you will be. I was hoping to get out of the house and come up and visit if that is ok... Love, Brad

    Continuing to pray for Maia, the two of you, and the entire medical team.

    And...mushy minds are completely understandable. From the wise sage Dr. Seuss, "The people that matter don't mind, and the people that mind don't matter."

    Hugs to you all!

  5. I want you to know that even though I don't post everyday on your blog, I read every post and pray for your sweet family everyday!! Your family is always in my thoughts and prayers!!

  6. As this Thursday ends, I am sending you love. Hopefully as this day ends, Maia is stable and is where she needs to be in the hospital. Prayers your way. XOXO Jane
