First I have to say thank you so much for the overwhelming support and prayers for my niece, Addison. I have been so touched! I wanted to update you all on Addison’s progress.
As I posted yesterday, Addison was born at 35 weeks and is in the NICU. The picture above is her yesterday morning. Last night was really rough. The Doctors noticed she was not doing as well as she had been and after tests they discovered a hole in her lung. They did an emergency procedure on her to insert a tube. The procedure was successful and she did great.
Today has been hard. There has not been any good news. Her oxygen levels (from her blood gas tests) have actually gotten a bit worse. They increased the oxygen being given by the machines to help.
She is proving to be a VERY strong little girl! I know that she will make it through this! I did not get to see her today so I do not have a new picture to share.
I am going to share all of your comments with my brother and his wife. The stories of you all who have been through this are so encouraging. I KNOW they will appreciate reading them. It helps to know others have been through this and made it out OK! If you have any advice, suggestions, or sources to share please do!
All of the prayers and love are being felt! Thank you all so much!
