Long Night

We were hoping Callie would come home today.. unfortunately she is not. We got the ok from surgery, however yesterday she started to have periodic breathing. Kinda like an apnea spell. At first when it started she would recover quickly. As yesterday progressed she was not recovering as quickly.
Chris spent the day at home doing laundry, cleaning and taking care of Zak. He came to the hospital around 6:30 and even picked us up dinner... No hospital food - Yippie! It was nice to see him and have a meal together. The hardest part of all this is just being away from him. I left around 7:30, her stats seemed to be dropping more. As the evening progressed they became more worried and ending up putting her on oxygen. When they took her temp she spiked a fever of 102. The x-ray was clear and nothing obvious showed up in the blood work. Chris hung out in the PCIU with her until 2am when she had been stable for a while. She has been monitored all day, we still have no ideas what is going on. She is still on oxygen and having the periodic breathing episodes. Hopefully she will just get better or we can find our some more tomorrow.

I got to spend the night with Zak last night and all day today. It was so nice to be around him again and not in a hospital. He has to wonder what is going on. Why it is so quiet with out Callie home and why he only gets to see Mom or Dad. He was a little cling on today. Actually it was kinda cute to know he wanted to be by me. He has started to try and follow us around the house. He rolls everywhere he wants to get. He helped me fold laundry by pulling out my bottom dresser drawer and empty it. Then he went to his bedroom and made a mess too. It is fun to see him get into things.

Thank you to everyone for your prayers. We love to hear from you. We hope to be home soon, but know Callie is best in the hospital right now.
