|Brent, Anaya, Camara|
Solara is overjoyed to know that we love her just as much as we love Anaya and always have. We are considering taking family time out from life...but we'll see how things go. Anaya has been so sick these past few days that each moment is even more precious.
She has severe pneumonia and is now on very strong antibiotics and morphine. The morphine is to help keep her comfortable. There was nothing they could do to help us at the Hospital. After the chest x-ray showed bi lobe pneumonia, there was a rumour that it looked like TB and then they tested for TB and put us in isolation.
The room was stuffy and uncomfortable. The doctor came in and told us that Anaya most definately did not have tuburculosis and that there was nothing that they could really do for Anaya at the hospital short of putting her on heavier life supports. Dr. Kalia suggested that my house was "the most well set up palliative home" he'd ever seen, and that the best place for Anaya to be was at home.
We immediately packed up her stuff and I called our nurse. She encouraged me to stay in the hospital...I explained that we weren't, that the doc said it was best to go to hospice or home. She disagreed. I called her supervisor and suggested maybe she should take a few days off. Then her supervisor called me and advised me that Nurse C will no longer be coming in. WHAT THE HELL!?? I was told that my next nursing shift will be tuesday the 16th with MoMo. I can't believe the ineptitude of Resourceability Nursing Agency.
I haven't left Anaya's side all day. She's been sleeping and healing. Thank god for the people in our lives who are so incredibly helpful. Thank you to Nurse Anna (friend) for coming over last night, and again tonight to VOLUNTEER her time to help me with Anaya so that I can sleep. Thank you to Dr. Kalia - who makes house calls to see my precious one. Thank you to Carla for the food yesterday, Thank you to Pam for the Spaghetti Sauce, Thank you to Kootenay Christian Fellowship and Loreli for helping with the house cleaning, Thank you to Lisa and Ellen and Sharon and Candace and everyone who loves Anaya.
Thank you to those of you who have paid to subscribed to the blog, and those of you who have bought a bumper sticker or donated to help fund our life with our Angel Anaya. Without your support we'd be much worse off.
Thank you to those who remind me to remember Solara in everything that I do.
Thank you, God, Universe, Great Spirit, for allowing me this life that I may feel, experience, know, love, and create.
