The past few days have been a whirlwind. We've had a few good moments but a lot of hard ones too. Last night it was hard for Erik and I to pull our eyes away from the monitors. Things were not looking great, but it's almost 24 hours later and Lucy is resting better than she has for the past several nights.
Human emotions are a crazy thing. One moment Erik and I can be sobbing uncontrollably and then in a snap talking about making the bed. The tears come fast and heavy. And then we find strength that is unexplainable to make it through the next moment.
We spent a good deal of time today talking to doctors. I am begging for a schedule..a plan. But the reality is that there is nothing at all we can plan. Nothing.
We will remain in the hospital until Lucy is stable enough to come home. The goal is to get her home as soon as possible so that we can spend some good time together as a family. For that to happen everyone agrees that a full course of antibiotics to treat meningitis needs to be administered. That will happen over the next week with an evaluation at the end to determine if another week is necessary.
Thank you for your continued prayers, love and support.
