Bless this mess that's keeping sweet Kayleigh alive!!!
He is listening to all of our prayers. Kayleigh is still here for another day and we are all rejoicing in the little bit of progress she has made today. Aimee and I are in complete awe of how powerful all of yours and our prayers have been. It is a true miracle if she makes it through this. I can not express to you the feelings we have had over the past few days as we see our precious Kayleigh slip further and further away from us. It is a situation that I wish on no one as no medication was working to save her.
I (Adam) will speak for myself on this one, but after being physically and emotionally drained, all I wanted was Kayleigh to go in peace since our options were slowly drifting away. Having talks with the doctors as to when we should decide to no later intervene with the inevitable, was the most difficult decision anyone could ever think about. Even though my faith is 100% completely in God, I had lost hope for Kayleigh, but only because I felt God was telling me it was her time to go. I GUESS I WASN'T LISTENING QUITE CLEARLY!!!
Since confirming her situation has been spiraling out of control due to pneumonia, the doctors have taken action to switch her antibiotics to focus directly on the problem, add chest physical therapy and turning Kayleigh on her side to relieve pressure on her lungs, she has made some improvements. Little improvements at this time are BIG improvements in my book. The first x-ray showed her right lung was completely collapsed and her left lung was nearly in the same position. The second x-ray, five hours later and after some of the new orders were written, her lungs have opened up a good bit on the right side and even a little more on the left.
Not only were her lungs making progress, her oxygen saturation has as well. She has been satting in the mid to high 90's. The doctors say that once the lungs open up, it takes pressure off the heart and the overload back-up taking place in her liver will diminish. She is still considered critical condition and at anytime, she may have a hypertensive bout that could very well take her life. The x-ray that just came in 2 seconds ago showed there were no change in the past few hours. Pray tonight that the next one in the morning will show more improvements.
We are still praying for more days like today so we can have a true Christmas miracle take place as a lot of you mentioned. I want to thank you so much for your prayers, but we are not done with you yet!!! KEEP THEM COMING PLEASE!!!!! I can't begin to scratch the surface of how important your prayers have been in turning this situation completely around.
Some of you asked if there are any prayers you can say for Brandon and Allyson. Yes! Please pray that they understand us through this trying time. As they seem emotional with not being able to see Kayleigh (RSV season) and not being able to see us as much during Kayleigh's hard times, they will understand the love we have for Kayleigh is the same amount of love we have for them.
Also, please pray for Aimee and I. Since Kayleigh has been struggling for the past 6 months, Aimee and I have too. A lot of you think we are this perfect family, and we practically are with the love we have for each other, but we aren't when it comes to the market we all live in. We want you all to include Aimee and I in your prayers as this market turns around quickly. Since coming to the hospital everyday and being in the real estate business together, we have not had nearly the time it takes to survive in a dying market. Since Kayleigh is having such a difficult time and family always comes first, I would hate to find a salary position that would only take time away from the ones that need me most, not to mention that no one is hiring right now. If anyone knows a financial assistance program/company that will help us not go in to foreclosure or lose our only vehicle, we would greatly appreciate it. I know they are out there, but you all have pulled through for us before. Since there are so many of you and only two of us, we figured you all would have much better ideas to help us through this. Please email us at Adam@TeamFreemanProperties.com
We hate to give out our personal struggles to you all, but we have exhausted every angle and tried so much already that our options have faded away with little more time to waste. I can only trust in God that He is putting a spot light on our weaknesses only to help us find new strength.
Thank you and please keep praying as hard as you can!!!
