More detailed update

Monday, December 20, 2010

I'm still going to make this fairly short cause I want to be my bride's side and I also want to run back to the other hospital to check and see how Claire is doing.

The reason they sent Keri over to ICU is because she is having trouble regulating her oxygen levels (I may be way off, I'm doing my best to relay medical jargon). She's got a machine breathing for her, but she just started becoming alert about 10 minutes ago. She can shake her head yes and no, and I think she's partially breathing on her own now. As un-emotional of a person I am, seeing her like this is killing me and everytime I look at her I think I'm going to lose it. On the ambulance ride over I was thinking to myself how I only thought this happens in movies.

For the brighter side of things, Claire is doing really well. There were some concerns at first because of the medication that Keri was on. It was making Claire so "drugged up" that she was (in their terms) "forgetting to breath." They were somewhat expecting it though, so they were prepared and started again. But again, nothing a parent should ever see. I'm going to head back there shortly to check on her, but my main focus right now is Keri.

Thanks again for all your prayers and support from around the country.
