Things are really hard for Evangeline right now.
She is not bouncing back from this surgery well at all. She is still flat on her back and in literal agony when they try to move her.
Her leg has not improved since the earliest movements of a couple of days ago. Her tongue was badly cut in surgery from the breathing tube and has been very painful. She has not been eating or drinking and is still requiring IV fluids.
She is not able to come home, and no one knows when she will be able to. At this point, she will remain in ICU until she is transferred to inpatient rehab where she will remain indefinitely.
There are just no answers right now.
No one knows what we can expect or how long it will take.
Right now, we are praying for a private room. Last night, they put a precious little four year old in our room who is virally sick with a terrible upper respiratory illness. I have requested that we be moved. I am praying they honor my request.
The kids at home are doing well, but we’ll have to figure out how to handle all of this moving forward. Right now it feels overwhelming.
I know we just have to walk through this. There is a way even if I can’t see it.
God has a plan.
Thank you all so much for your prayers and comments of love and kindness.
We are blessed, and God is good.
