More updates on Jiliang...

Thursday, April 22, 2010
TJ visited Jiliang yesterday

T.J. (brother) came up with my sister yesterday. Scott (Husband) didn't want him to see Jiliang with all of her tubes and with her being sedated. However, T.J. really wanted to see her. I prepared him for all of the things that he might see, and explained that he needed to be quiet, because there were sleeping babies.
He walked in with Leah (sister) and I, and we looked through the window. He was comfortable, so he sat down next to her. He was very interested in the machines and tubes. "What does this do? What does this go?" Upon leaving, he told her goodbye and that he loved her.
We also had a pleasant visit from Dave Dorian, who came bearing a care package from Local 3008. Thanks for all of the wonderful activities. You are all our Second Family. Jiliang will enjoy them once she is awake.
Jill :)

Jiliang Update

Jiliang is still going to be sedated, so I will not be spending the night tonight. However, if she is awake tomorrow, then I will be spending every night here.
After we went to lunch, the doctors and nurses moved her which agitated her. She sat up and tried to yank on her breathing tube gently. Then, she cried, "Mama!" through her breathing tube. :(
She is in excellent hands. Her pressures are coming back up, so the pressures are not as good as they were last night, which is scary to see; but the doctor's believe that her condition is still very good. They want to treat her aggressively with blood pressure medications and then hopefully wean her off slowly, possibly over months. She still has many hurdles to overcome, but I have faith and hope that she will do well.
Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
