I wish I could say we are on the floor and all is well, but that is just not the case. I haven't posted for so long because I think a lot of you look to our blog for inspiration, but things just haven't been that great lately and it's hard to post. Teagan's lung just haven't been getting better, they are still full of junk and he breaths fast. On Saturday it was my birthday and my family tried to make it nice, we ate at the Point on Friday and then Sat. morning Scott took me to get a massage down at Foothill, my mom brought up lunch and Teagan had a ok day; then at 6:30 am Sunday morning we got the first of three calls that Teagan needed more support with his breathing, they put him on C-pap. Then they called again for permission to do a pic line. When me and Ryan got here on Sunday it was a sad sight, we both just had to cry, the C-pap was not the cute little beanie he had last time, it was full on Top Gun mask and head gear, I could barely see his eyes, he just looked miserable. Since then we have been running every test possible and so far none have come back positive. He keeps getting fevers and last night before we left his right foot got all red and hard and hot, not good! It has now been TWO weeks in the PICU for a 7-10 day recovery. We will keep running tests to figure things out, but right now we are discouraged and I am so scared, It just makes me cry. Lungs are the end of the road, if it was his heart we could try for a transplant, but his heart is good or so they say, but his lungs look the same after all they do. So many of our sweet-HEARTS have passed away because of lungs and it scares me, they feel like all he needs is time so we will give him that. Please pray and send your good wishes, that's about all you and I can do.
Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, because life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.
