Mini-update on Vivian - 7/8

Vivian's EEG has been postponed because of her sedation. I think that Dr. Riela (Vivian's longtime neurologist) will still come by tonight, and I am eager for his input.

This morning Vivian had a wakeful period where she thrashed around and made strange gutteral sounds. Her eyes were open, but she did not seem to see anything. Vivian seemed so confused and not herself. I am trying so hard to remain hopeful, but these waves of panic keep overcoming me. Please keep praying that Vivian is healed. I am pleading with God to take away my fear, but I am still very scared.

My mom flew in this morning from Jackson Hole. My mother-in-law picked her up from the airport and we all had lunch together at the hospital. I just couldn't take being up there anymore, so my mom and I have come home for a little bit. I am going to try to rest and regather my strength and then go back up to Vivian's room.

Thanks to each of you for your love and support. It means a lot to Robert and me to know that so many people love our sweet Vivian and are praying fervently for her.


"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27

I have been praying all day and eagerly hoping for a positive EEG. I cannot imagine what you are feeling. Hand your fear over to God and He will take it. Love,

My heart and prayers continue to go out to you and your family.

"So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
Isaiah 41:10

Down on my knees praying for you all! Everyone i have spoken with today says Vivian is constantly on their mind as is your entire family. No miracle is too big for God! I cannot imagine what you are going though, but know people all over the world are praying for the well being of your entire family!

Nancy and Chris were told by other parents that life in the NICU (and I'm sure it applies to the PICU)is a series of two steps forward and one back. Praying that this latest set back will be followed by those steps forward. So glad that your mom is here. Get some rest, Eloise.
