Day 5: Much Better

Friday was a great day for Emily. Her fevers stopped for almost the whole day, and her need for sedation went from 1-2 hrs. to 3-4 hrs. She was awake at times, not quite aware, but opened her eyes for a couple of minutes.
Thank you for the prayers, because it's great to see her fevers stop. Her temp started to creep up a little on Friday night, but not too much. If Emily can keep this trend and just ride out this metapneumovirus, that would be good.
Annabelle got to visit for a little while! I was surprised that she was hesitant to touch Emily, but she was much younger when she saw her intubated last. However, her precious sister's soft skin drew her in, and soon she was right next to her. : ) When Annabelle is sad or hurt, touching Emily's soft hand or ear helps her feel better, so we were glad to see that some physical contact was made.
Let's pray and hope for a smooth weekend. : )

Our prayers continue. I hope this virus passes quickly and without any more big trouble. Thanks for writing about Annabelle. My middle child has been nervous and even frantic once at the hospital, but sisterly love overrides and now she climbs right up to Ally's bed and hangs out with her. Luckily we haven't been in the hospital for quite some time, but I understand how difficult it is on the whole family. Wish we were closer to help in some way.

(((Hugs)))
