Christmas Miracle

Dec. 3 was the date of my last post...the date that we would rush our daughter to the ER with a 104 temperature.  It is now Christmas Eve, and she remains in MICU fighting for her beautiful life, from pneumonia gone bad.  ARDS, Renal Failure...the works.

I've learned so much from these past 3 weeks, that remain a blur, from the local hospital to the big one who would perform a life saving procedure known as ECMO.  Yeah, look that one up!

As today is the first day that she has opened her eyes with her family by her side, I am weary, I am grateful and I want to universally acknowledge, that we are truly blessed.

Merry Merry, Happy Happy, Joy Joy...to one and all!  And many thanks to everyone who participated in our Christmas Miracle that is the life of our beautiful child through prayer and good intentions.

Mahalo from the bottom of my heart!
