PLEASE Pray For Adriana

***edit to say Adriana is improving a little bit. The Dr's feel it is her sleep apnea back again. She is not yet fully alert and she will have to stay on her apnea monitor all the time while she is sleeping. More later. Very sad day today, I just can't shake the feeling of despair and hurt. It is more then anyone should ever have to endure***

This black cloud still follows us around, life is officially now considered torture.

Adriana, our beautiful 3 year old granddaughter had been fighting an ear infection since the day after they went back home to Cape Coral.
Her second ear got infected yesterday and after another trip to the pediatrician, she was put on a different medicine, one she'd never been on.

Around 4 AM, yesterday morning Kayara woke up to check on her and found her "unresponsive" {that's what the EMS stated}. She was rushed to the hospital, had a bunch of tests done including a spinal tap for meningitis and then was transferred to a different hospital that has a ped's unit.

She is still in an extremely heavy sleep, with a high fever and is on a monitor for her breathing, which has been going off a lot, maybe 6-8 times an hour. Many of you may remember she had sleep apnea as a baby.
The doctors are trying to determine if the sleep apnea is rearing it's ugly head again or if she had an allergic reaction to the new medicine which we found out last night, does have penicillin in it.

Please, please, if you all can do anything for us today, please start some heavy duty prayers for Adriana {also known as Grammpa's "Firecracker"}.

Thank you everyone.

***Vinny, you stay with Adriana and Kayara, they need you the most right now. I know you have been there for whoever has needed you the most at the time and right now it is their time. The boys and I will be OK today, we have each other we will make it through the day {but just barely}. Whatever you have to do, you do it to make sure Adriana goes home with her Mommy & Daddy healthy and happy. I love and miss you so much my beautiful Angel. Thank you for sending that pretty red cardinal the other day, I saw it up there in that tree. I couldn't possibly have missed that bright red on such a gray day.***

I followed your Caringbridge journal about Kody years ago and lost the link a while ago when I had computer problems. I just saw a link to your blog on a comment forum at Mckmama's blog.
Anyway, I will be praying for your family.

Kim, please give Adriana a BIG HUG from her Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandparents.
Tell her we miss her smile and can not wait to see her again.

Prayers and hugs. All will be okay, our prayers and Vinny will see to that. Thank goodness Kayara checked on her when she did (did someone whisper in her ear to check at that moment??). I have apnea so I know what it is like to quit breathing in your sleep. We think about you all the time, I wish there was something we could do to lift this black cloud of hurt and despair that envelopes you. Love you, CJ

Lori said...

Kody, Happy 9 year kicking cancers butt anniversary. You are such an awesome young man and Dad is looking down on your with the biggest smile on his face. I am so sorry he is gone but he is not gone really he lives in your heart and soul. You and your brother are making him so proud by taking care of your Mom and being the man of the house. Never be afraid he is looking over you all day and night. Sending you much love and hugs. Lori

I found out about your amazing blog through helpfindthemissing. The way you live your life and put it into words is truly a gift. My heart aches reading of the recent hell you have been living. I believe I was touched the most, reading of you telling Karl to stay with your granddaughter.... I believe now he has super long arms.... long enough to encompass all of you. Your sons will be your rocks... and you will be theirs. Allow yourself to lean on your friends and family... Allow them to prop you up. Real friends don't just help you up... they also lay down on the ground with you and share your tears.

Prayers being sent for Lil Adrianas healing that she starts to feel better soon & For Adrianas' Mommy & Daddy that she will be back to her young self & back home real soon fully healed. For the K-Klan that they find comfort in each passing day. And for this Black cloud to get away from this loving family as they have already been through enough.
