Day 8, Morning Edition

The night was pretty stable, some minor changes to her meds to manage the blood pressure. With that stability, this morning they removed the “bolt” (one of the monitors measuring her brain pressure [ICP]) and her drainage (hemovac), so she can go into the MRI this afternoon. She is comfortable. One step at a time, celebrate each small win. We are terrified of the potential results of the MRI, but we know it will only reveal the reality that has already existed, so this doesn’t change anything other than giving us a clearer view of what can be done to help her.

We continue to pray, asking God for this trial to pass quickly, to give us strength to carry Amber, and for Amber’s own strength to persevere through this.

  1. Sending you all lots of healing prayers and love to remain strong for Amber. You are all on our minds and in our hearts at this time.
    I found this easy prayer for Ben to say for Amber
    Heavenly Father watch over Amber, and Grant that she may be restored to that perfect health which it is yours alone to give; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

  2. Caron, Matt and all your family, I am so sorry to hear the news and will send my prayers daily. I truly appreciate your blog and will follow Amber’s journey. May God bless you all through this difficult time.
