November 27th Sunday: Tears...
Charlotte woke up at about 2am with a shrill yelp and started throwing up. She did this 5 times throughout the night until about 6am when things finally calmed down and she slept a little. That morning she had a hard time to fully wake up, she was so groggy and sleepy. A fury of calls and doctor visits and we changed her drugs around, hoping that would make her feel better. Codeine was switched over to morphine and that steroid that I mentioned last post, that she has been getting a .5ml dose twice a day was boosted to a 2ml dose three times a day.
Our doctors here have been in close contact with the palliative care team at the Childrens Hospital. We were been told that it looks like her body has finally had enough, they think that she is on her last few days, maybe a week. I cant begin to tell you what that was like to hear. Days of tears.
In the few days since then we have had some improvements, her drugs are keeping her comfortable. Each day she seems to eat a little more, sit up and be a little more interactive too. For the most part she seems to be very peaceful and comfortable. A constant roller coaster.
We continue to pray. Please pray for us all.
