Day 3 and Praying

Mail for Ceci

It’s 1pm here in Iowa City, Iowa and Our girl is still fast asleep.

This infection is really taking it out of her 😔

She continues to get around the clock iv antibiotics in hopes that we can beat this, and get our sweet girl back to being healthy and happy.

She hasn’t eaten much the past few days, her heart rate and blood pressure is low and her urine output is decreasing.

To say we’re worried is a understatement……

We’re going to wake her shortly to help get her cleaned up and hopefully figure out some things.

It was a very long night with concern and me standing at the monitors watching closely.

I’ve been in close contact with her dad and all the kids back home. It’s so hard because they can’t be here right now, I can’t leave her side and dad is struggling to stay at work because his heart is hurting with worry about our baby girl.

Waiting is the hardest part.

We’re waiting to see if the antibiotics will help… we’re waiting on the next set of blood cultures to come back… we’re waiting for the next set of pain medications to keep her comfortable…. we’re just waiting!

I know we have a huge and amazing team of prayer warriors and good thought angels by our side and we can’t say thank you enough for that ❤

I’m sorry that I can’t respond to each and everyone of your messages, emails and phone calls but please know we’re reading them all and holding your words close to our hearts.

Continue to pray with us for healing for sissy girl.

Lots of love, hugs and appreciation,

Alexis, Cecilia Marie and Our Special Family 💜

    Praying several times a day and even during the night when I’m awake. I have had sepsis and I wish Ceci didnt have. She is in our Jesus’s hands.
