Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart


Riding the Vent

Ash is still out. All paralytics and sedation have been turned off for hours and hours, but yet our sweet girl still does what is called "riding the vent". She is making no attempt to breathe on her own. She's not initiating any breaths and not breathing over at all. I'm disheartened as I watch the monitor on the ventilator. The only comfort I find is that she is at rest and not struggling as she did last night. Perhaps there is great healing going on inside of her tiny body?

Still she is breathtaking.

Oh, how I love our daughter. I love her so very much.
