Not So Good: A Prayer Request

To say we are exhausted is an understatement. All 3 of us!

They took Nina of the IV to see if she will eat and drink on her own. So far we have failed, as she has had nothing to eat or drink, other than a few little sips of water.

Her oxygen numbers keep dropping when she is sleeping and they have an oxygen mist thing going for her as she sleeps. Unfortunately, she never had an actual test done to see if she had sleep apnea, which she very well might have, so we do not know if her numbers are "normal" or not. I am afraid with what we know, they will say "not."

Our one night stay at the hospital will most likely result into 2 days at the hospital. No fun! I need sleep, I am not happy, enjoyable, nor mothering or nurturing when I am sleep deprived.

So please pray for Nina.
-That she will start eating and drinking
-For her pain
-For her oxygen levels


  1. I am praying for you Ellen! God can hold you up during this time.

  2. I'm praying, too. Those nights in the hospital are so hard. Remember, the only thing worse would to not be with your little one.

  3. praying!

  4. I hope at this time ( Fri. 8:23 pm ) that Nina is feeling better and that her oxygen levels are staying steady. The moisture from the mist is actually good for her throat. I also hope that You have been able to get some rest! I know it's tough to deal with anything when your mind is weary! Unfortunately, kids pick up on your irritability, so it's probably making things harder for both of you. Have they been staying on top of her pain? Maybe a reminder as soon as it's time would help. It's hard when you're doing Primary Care for 3-5 Peds patients and things get busy. Hopefully Nina is starting to take in more fluids. I've been Praying for Nina and Chrissie (see recent post on my blog) for the past two days. Like every few minutes they are on my mind and I'm asking the Lord to ease both of their pain and for Peace for their parents and siblings. I know you have someone wonderful with your other girls, but it's gotta be hard to be away from them.
    I'll continue to Pray for all of you and look forward to hearing that Miss Nina is on the mend! Hugs ~ Jo
