we got ahead of ourselves with all that "home-going" talk. susanna had a ct scan late last night in order to make sure she was clear to be moved to the rehab facility. but at 1 a.m. my brother was called and told that the scan indicated fluid around her heart. she had a surgical procedure to drain the fluid, which was a darker color than the doctors expected. they say this could be the result of her recent infection, or perhaps she'd had another infection at some point in the past that was never detected.
at any rate, susanna is back in the icu and on a ventilator. peter is feeling as though this will never end, and isaak misses his mommy. and why wouldn't he? peter is with her at the hospital until she wakes up, but then he has to go to work. their pastor is going to be with them and will possibly stay for a while during the day so susanna has company and someone to keep a watchful, caring eye on her.
keep the prayers comin'.
