Sorry to keep everyone out of the loop, I wanted to make sure my sister got her email before I posted this. Brooklyn had an awful night on Friday and Saturday morning I happened to call about 5 minutes before the Nurse Practitioner was going to call me. She had a perforation in her intestinal tract and needed to have surgery. We were so lucky that the nurse working that night was primary on Isabel also so she knows our family and we have kept in touch all this time. She was blessed with some mother's intuition for me and if she had not been there the symptoms may not have been caught for an hour or two longer. Needless to say we are so grateful for Jennifer. Surgery went as well as can be expected, she tried to give the anesthesiologist a hard time and make him earn his money by having her blood pressure going crazy. She came thru surgery fine but was obviously critical. Today is a bit better but not much. Mike and I have been trying to get excited about the itty bitty victories today but the nurses don't want us to get our hopes too high. I guess that's about it. We really won't know what else it looks like might happen for a couple of days or so. Please, Please keep her in your prayers, I know you may be tired of praying for her but this is definitely the most critical she's been since she has been alive...
On a happier note Today was Brooklyn's one week birthday... So she's now a 25 1/2 weeker! OH I almost forgot.... The nurses changed a tube in her mouth today and when they pulled it out... well my lil' girl didn't like it to much so she opened her right eye and glared at them!!!! At least my lil' girl is feisty. Will let you know as soon as we have more info on her outlook. Also thank you to all the church members here in St Louis who have been willing and able to come and donate blood for Brooklyn. We are so overwhelmed by the love that we have been shown.
