Sorry I have not updated as frequently as I have wanted to over the past 18 hours.
Mark convinced me to home with Matthew last night. Leaving the hospital was hard, but walking in the house was even harder. Maia's shoes were at the top of the stairs and our bedroom was still a mess from the ambulance crew coming in. I did not deal well. Finally took sleep medication which did help me sleep for about six hours.
This morning, I arrived at the hospital to find Maia screaming in pain. They have had to increase her medication so that she is now getting something every two hours scheduled. I'm very concerned about this... not that she is getting narcotics, but what is the reason for the increase in pain over the past 24 hours. She still is not responsive, although she opens her eyes. I can't quite tell if she sees us or if this is just a reflex.
About 30 minutes ago, she vomited. So her tube feedings are on hold. Waiting for the doctors to come in.
Please continue to storm heaven for our sweet angel. I'm feeling so anguished right now. I know that God is holding Maia and his angels are with her in ways we can't even comprehend. I also know that your prayers are sustaining all of us in this fight for Maia's life. Thank you is so inadequate, but it's all I have right now.
