One Step Forward

Two steps back.

Another update this afternoon.

Some tests came back from little Gracie Jean. It would appear the issue is more severe then previously thought... and we all had been thinking that was severe. Not only is she missing half of her heart, but the remaining half has some pretty bad deformities on its own.

To add to the stress, her mother has begun to bleed... far more heavily then is healthy. The one thing she needs to do more then anything else is to stay in bed and lay still and rest. The one thing she just can't do. For understandable reasons, she refuses to leave the ICNU.

I fear this may be a situation that as one fades... so does the other. Amanda won't leave her daughter, and she isn't yet at a point where she could be forced for her own good.

Just... pray. I honestly don't know for what, my mind keeps pingponging from miraculous healing... to a gentle release.

Ever had one of those weeks where there is nothing you can do, no way to really help, no actions to take... you just stand swaying in the living room trying to figure out where to place your feet.

oh sweetheart..........

at least your cousin is in the hospital, where if something does happen they can get her help quick.......and it does sound like they are doing all they can for the little one......which at least means something.......

yeah, i'm bad with words, but you get the drift.....

please take care of yourself also.....we all know how you are at placing your feet at the best of times!! noone needs you collapsing on top of all this.....

i will be hoping for it all to turn out as it needs to turn out, however that ends up being.....

and, to quote the hoggle, "....should you need us, for any reason......"

love you hon.........hugs........

I've had those weeks and it's very hard to feel so helpless. I'll keep them in my thoughts.
