Ryley 09-05-09

I was discharged from the hospital this morning at about 10am. We spent some time with Ryley before leaving. I hadn't been home an hour before I got a phone call to give permission for a Lumbar Puncture. Apparently at 10:28 she coded for the first time, and then repeated it throughout the day. We knew that we were dealing with respiratory problems, but as long as we were in the hospital it was mostly oxygen saturation issues, and now she decides that breathing is optional.

I am a total emotional wreck, but hey, I had a baby less than 72 hours ago. I do feel totally blessed by the outpouring of support and love from friends and family. I know that everything will be ok, we just need to get through this trial of our faith first.
