Ups and Downs

The road to recovery since this last hospitalization is up and down.  Peyton has some pretty good days but also some days where she starts running a low temperature or her oxygen levels aren't quite where we'd like them, thus requiring more oxygen at night.  She hasn't been sick to the point of needing to go to the doctor or to the ER, though, which is great!

We've had some big challenges in the last week.  I wrote about those on my blog over here:


Read in order so it makes more sense.  What has happened has been very challenging for us.  A lot of what's going on makes no sense and is hard to digest, but hopefully we can work around this and be ok with it in the end.  There's a lot of info, so I'd encourage you to hop over to the blog to read what I've already written on the subject.

Please pray for this situation for us!

We made it through the weekend!

Peyton is feeling better still.  She still sounds kind of junky and has a lot of secretions, but overall, improved from last week.

We had her follow up appointment with the Infectious Disease doctor who, as it turns out, also attends Seacoast!  He is so nice.  Anyway, he said she sounded better today than she did at the appointment just the day before Peyton went into the hospital, so that's encouraging.  He stopped her antibiotics.

Please keep praying that she continues to get better and that we do not start a cycle of one hospitalization after another with ongoing respiratory issues like we had last year!
