Another Update on Rylee...

Seems like every time we send encouraging news about RyLee, something discouraging happens, and every time we share the bad news, the next update is better.Yesterday Nathan had his lowest point. The doctor said RyLee has brain damage on the left side that has put her at risk for problems with language comprehension, speaking, and use of her right hand. Then that evening she developed a fever. But this morning they are starting to wean her off the respirator, which means they cut out the sedatives and cut back on the pain meds. Her blood pressure spikes when we are with her, so we have to limit our visits, but it seems like she might be able to focus her eyes sometimes. She does not have pneumonia, but she must have infection somewhere. This morning, Nathan was composed and hopeful again.
