Little Grace was going to be moved into the step-down program at Duke this afternoon, following a checkup that had her in “amazingly well, considering” shape.
She crashed again this afternoon and the doctors were unable to get her heart beating on its own, so she is back on the heart/lung machine.
My mom is heading northward tomorrow to spend Easter with my brother's family and to get some quality grand-baby time in. I've told her to put this aside as much as she can, and I'll take on the phone vigil for the weekend.
Blogging, emailing, phoning, and basic human thought outside of this... will be spotty for the next few days. Sorry about this.
When all is said and done and Grace makes it to her 21st birthday, the kid is going to owe a lot of people a LOT of drinks. I'm putting in my order for Tequila Sunrises now.
