    Sammy, what a fighter you are!
    I am so glad to hear you are better.

    GOOD NEWS!! ~ Sammy is Really Getting *BETTER*!!



    Wednesday, December 14, 2005 at 12:59 PM EST

    Sam is improving each day, and was extubated yesterday;
    she's breathing great on her own, and slept through the night.
    She has opened her eyes, but doesn't stay awake for long --
    her sedation is now off, but it will take a little time before she's fully awake.
    She has managed to cry, though!

    Her arterial line has been removed, and though she was puffy yesterday,
    the fluids are coming off, and she's "deflating" as I type.

    Dialysis won't be necessary, which is great.
    She has bled a bit into some old wounds, so some of her scars are darker,
    and she's had a little blistering/bleeding, but plastics has been alerted,
    and we'll wait to hear what they have to say.

    She did mouth a small kiss to me yesterday, and
    gave her Barney a brief hug.
    She received a shampoo & hairstyle (pigtails), and
    is nearly ready to leave the PICU -- maybe tomorrow!
    She will need to finish the course of antibiotics,
    so she'll recover on a regular floor for a week or so, at least.
    They are lowering the lasix as well.

    They identified the bacteria; it's a GI bug, and a pretty uncommon one.
    It's not an esp. resistant one, luckily, and
    they feel they have it under control.
    The PICC did not appear infected, but the fact that she had a
    line in increases the chances for infection, so they still think it's involved.

    We're hoping Sam will be hungry when she wakes up, and
    have the menu in front of us, to order some of her favorites.

    Thanks, everyone, for your support and prayers;
    Sam plans on being home as soon as she can!

    Jessica

    PS: Yesterday was one year to the day when Sam was
    first placed in my arms!

    Happie *Gotcha Day*, Sammy!!

    Now let's see if you can make it Home to see Santa!

    Oh sweet child

    Sammy and family must be so exhausted and confused. What more must they endure? It seems as though they had things on track and now must re-join the hospital scene. Hopefully they will be home soon, just in time for Santa to arrive. If not, I bet Santa will come to the hospital to visit Sammy and family.

    You are in my thoughts day in and day out.

    ((((((((((((((((((((((Sammy and family))))))))))))))))))))

    Yes, my thoughts exactly..........how much more? How my heart goes out to this family.

    Continued prayers are being offered that Sammy will conquer this latest challenge and be home in time for Christmas.

    My apologzies for not keeping up with this thread. I've only learned about the setback this morning. Sammy, you and your family are an inspiration to us all and seeing what you've been through makes our own lives a piece of cake.
    This certainly puts my whining about my life in perspective.
    Isn't that the truth Staci?? You and me....we have absolutely nothing to complain about.

    Speaking about "piece of cake" was that on the menu???
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Sammy's stuck in PICU - with a few more setbacks

    Thursday, December 15, 2005 at 05:25 PM EST

    Today hasn't been a good day for Sam,
    and she won't be leaving the PICU yet.

    She's been in and out, but when her eyes are open,
    she doesn't seem cognizant of anything or anyone -- even us.

    She's begun having seizures, and has had 5 episodes today.

    They did a CAT scan, which looked fine, but doesn't always offer a complete picture.
    They have her hooked up to an EEG, and
    will put her on anti-seizure meds. They're not sure why she's seizing,
    as she never has before; the immunology folks have been by,
    and will be doing some testing to rule out an immune deficiency problem.

    They are also going to do a spinal tap to see if the bacteria managed
    to cause any swelling or inflammation upstairs.

    Her kidney function is stable, and they expect it to continue to improve,
    now that the acute period is over, which is good,
    but now we have this new set of worries.

    Please pray hard for Sam, as her battle continues.

    Jessica

    Dear God ~


    Please, can You give Sammy, Jessica, and Rob a break?
    We'll Pray that tomorrow is a Better Day for Sam.

    I agree Phred.

    God:
    I do think it's time to put a stop to all this heartache. This family has been through enough and I pray that little Sammy will get well can be home for Christmas Day! Please, can you place your healing hands in just the right spot to bring peace to this family. Thanks God.

    Oh my

    Such sad news for such a lovely family. I hope that things settle down and Sammy turns the corner for home, soon. She needs our good thoughts, vibes, prayers and toss in a little luck, can't hurt. Oh my.
