Elation to Deflation

Lesson learned... never say things are boring...because things can change pretty quickly. Once again we found ourselves taking a ride on the Plan B roller coaster.

Friday we were transferred back to PICU because Parson's heart rate was high once again and unable to be maintained without sedation, so we made the journey back downstairs. She has been in much better shape with medication on board and her heart rate has returned to a normal range.

Friday wasn't boring & Saturday proved to be even less boring. We got a call for donor lungs about 6.30 pm last night. By the time we made plans and mobilized forces, the offer fell apart. We learned that Parson has an infection in her PICC line that needed to be treated before she can receive new lungs. I have complete confidence that things worked out just as they should last night. Those particular lungs were just not meant to be. We went from elation to deflation over the course of a few hours and that is quite a ride to take. Whew. I appreciate all of the prayers that were offered up for our family and on Parson's behalf. It was not in vain.

I have complete confidence in His divine plan. “Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” - Jeremiah 17:7-8
