It's been a rough week. Can you guess where we've landed ourselves?
Yes. Under the sea is no place we want to be. I don't have much time, as I have to get back to the PICU, but I wanted to let you know a little of what's going on.
Aviana usually bounces back from surgery like it's nothing. This time was different. She wasn't acting herself and then before long, she was downright inconsolable. In doing her (what we were told would be a quick and easy liver biopsy) they missed her liver and accidentally nicked her colon. When we found out, we were beside ourselves. Of course this happens....never % of the time!! Well that explained all of the pain she had been experiencing.
We immediately brought her in, and what followed ~ gosh I can't even put into words right now. I'm still quite shaken, and emotionally exhausted from the whole ordeal. The short of it though was we were once again faced with having to make life and death decisions, family meetings, and all of the sort. Needless to say, it was a really draining day.
Aviana ended up being rushed into surgery and everything went smoothly. She is recovering in the PICU and will be there for about 5 days. Hopefully no longer.
I have to go for now, as I need to get back to her. If you could please send our girl all the love and prayers you have, we would appreciate it. I feel so much sadness when I look into her sweet face. She is a human pin cushion. Not just that though, she has so many cuts, slashes, gashes, dents and holes all over her little body. It truly sickens me. I can't help but think when they handed her over to us in Guatemala, she was perfect in every way.
She doesn't deserve this kind of life!!!
She had finally fallen asleep right before they wheeled her back for surgery.
