Days of Updates

We do apologize for the delay of updates as these initial days have been full of travail.

Thursday 5/24 -
Abby is resting today. Had a bit of a rough night, breathing/phlegm  issues that seem to be corrected today.  The post operative recovery continues and physical therapy has started. Abby can move her arms but the fingers aren't cooperating (yet, by faith). Legs  - Abby knows when someone is moving them.
 Please continue to pray for the Marsh's who are camped at the hospital.
 We serve an awesome God.

Friday 5/25 -
Focus is on recovery from surgery. She has been in significant pain and discomfort from all the stress to her system (accident, surgery, hospital regiment etc). Progress is slower than we all would like. We continue to trust God for her recovery.
Psalm 18: 1-2 is our prayer.
We are thriving on and feeling your prayers. Thank you!

Saturday 5/26 - 
The team at children's is working diligently to get Abby out of ICU and on to rehab. Her left lung isn't  cooperating and breathing/respiratory problems are impeding rehab progression. The nurses have been propping her up on her left side in order to help drain the phlegm from her system. 
In the evening the breathing problems became severe as her oxygen level dropped to 40%. A team of doctors and nurses was quickly assembled to tackle the issue and keep Abby stable. A Bronchoscopy was performed to remove the phlegm from her system, which was described by the doctor as "glue". They told us that there was no way she could have gotten that out on her own. After the procedure doctors also noticed an air pocket that had formed around her left lung causing it to collapse. This was keeping her lung from being able to fully expand. After the Bronchoscopy a tube thoracostomy was performed to release this pressure. 
Continue prayer for strength for Abby and our family.
We are trusting in our mighty God.

Sunday 5/27 -
Abby has had restful day. Because she was having difficulty with breathing/phlegm issues the Children's team put her on a respirator that is down her throat. There is a separate tube that is used for suctioning the remaining gunk from her lungs that are working around the clock.
Abby has been tough and the medical staff feel the uninterrupted supply of oxygen will improve her recovery.
Please pray for strength.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles,

Psalm 126:5-6
Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy! He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
