She’s Awake

After a very hard day and sleepless night, our girl is awake and her vitals are coming back down to a stable level.

You know it’s been a rough night when you wake up finding yourself talking to the nurse (before your aware your awake), after only an hour of sleep with your shoes still on, laying side ways on the bed 😳πŸ₯΄πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯΄

But hey the sun is shining through our hopsital room window and they are bringing me a big cup of coffee, so it’s already looking better 😊

Ceci’s asked for some breakfast, which is a wonderful sign and she’s sitting up watching Grey’s Anatomy and

The doctors are continuing to run tests but believe that sis has a major bladder infection as well.

The plan is to continue IV fluids and IV antibiotics along with pain medication today, until we get back her blood and urine cultures.

The very hard part is the fact that her body just can not hold an IV πŸ˜” after only a few hours of being accessed her deep vein access clotted off causing Ceci severe pain and we had to discontinue use.

After major discussion it’s been determined that Ceci needs access and at this time her port is still usable, so they are re-accessing her port.

They are running heavy duty antibiotics through it, so the hope is if the infection is just at the skin level of the port, it’ll clear up.

But if her blood cultures come back with growth and the infection is in her blood stream, we’ll have to discuss removal of her port 😫

In the mean time we’re going to think positive thoughts and remind ourselves that sis has thousands of prayer warriors and good thought angel by her side praying relentlessly for her to heal and get back home!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™πŸ™ŒπŸ™

We know that God has our back and so do you πŸ’•

We love you all!

Thank you for the amazing outpouring of love, concern, prayers and support.

I’ll update more as soon as we know more.

Lots of love and hugs,
Alexis (mom), Cecilia Marie and Our Special Family πŸ’œ
