Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

12/18/2007

I'll Believe it...

...when I see it. Thats what my sister said to me yesterday. We are all SO excited about the holiday, but we know from experience just how quickly things can change.

After speaking with the coordinator this morning it seems like we may have to spend another day in Omaha. She isn't sure if anyone can get her line pulled today either. The team is in rounds and she is hoping for a decision to be made at that time. The fellow believes that Ash will need to be sedated for this type of line removal and she isn't scheduled anywhere for that. We are hoping they can do it in the treatment room in the ICU, but the surgeon has to agree to that. If Ash were older they wouldn't consider sedating her, but since this line is very large and because of where it is placed they are anticipating her to bleed heavily once it is removed. For this reason they will need to apply heavy pressure and Ash will not tolerate that if she is awake. So... we are waiting and could be waiting for several hours. I wish we could go and have it done at home, but we must use wisdom and the safest thing for Ash is to have it done here with her surgeons near by.

When we get the word I let everyone know, but for now we are just praying for a safe, non complicated removal so we can be on our way. Your prayers are appreciated. Take care. Trish

I am praying fervently that your wishes are granted. I hope you are feeling better, too. Yesterday's post was a little concerning to me. I hope your dizzy spells are better!

Dear Lord, hold this family, and specifically, this little one in the palm of Your mighty hand during her line removal. We trust utterly in You and thank You for the faithfulness You have shown the Adams family. Please, I pray, send them home, if it be Your will. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Removing that line has always been a concern. Praying it all goes smoothly and well, with no complications or further delays in your home-going.

I am thrilled you are getting closer. And forgive me for being an armchair (uneducated) physician, but shouldn't you stay around awhile after the procedure to make sure the bleeding doesn't start again. Just to be safe....

I am praying for safe removal and no complications for Ashley. You WILL be headed home for Christmas any time now and just think Trish, no pressure to get the house decorated, you already did that!! Waiting for word that you are "out of there" and homeward bound. Praying for you to be calm and your hopes stay high.

Love, Laurie in Ca.
