No news is good news!

I just spoke with Brooke and she told me that Andie had a rough night.
(So much for no news is good news...ugh.)
Though her blood pressure is better and her pulse is good (meaning her heart is doing what it should be!) her saturation level keeps dropping because of the pulmonary hypertension.
She ended up getting a blood transfusion to put more oxygen in her blood.
We are praying that today is the day that she 'turns the corner'.

I'm sorry for not updating later yesterday. My brain is in a fog...

Andie has remained stable. Her stats fluctuate a bit, but for the most part she is doing good.

Brooke is more than exhausted (as of yesterday evening). Hopefully she was able to catch up on some sleep last night.

**Keep praying for her renewed strength.

Andie's daddy sent me a couple pictures yesterday.

Thank you again for checking in and keeping Andie & her family in your prayers.

She has a long road ahead, but it's sweeter knowing that she is guided along that road cradled in the arms of Jesus!
