Nina got some much needed rest last night. The morphine patch plus the atavan really made a huge difference!!! She even requested to keep the oxygen mask on all night, sweet precious girl!!!
Although Nina rested it was almost impossible for Eileen and I, who were laying next to her, to rest! Her breathing is so labored. You can hear the fluid build up, the accumulation of spit. Periodically she would burst into a violent cough, clearing her airway!!! Each of these coughing spells would shoot through Eileen and I like a bolt of lightening. We are remaining calm but it still hard to not be in constantly petrified when your child is fighting to breathe and here is nothing you can do!!!
Twice in the last hour she has woken up and said she was hungry. I explained Vovo an Vava were on their way to make breakfast. She didn't protest but quietly went back to sleep. She knows when Vovo and Vava make breakfast it is good times!!!
As I publish this post, she is still comfortably sleeping.
