My Daughters Illness

Image
For the last month my daughter's illness has progressively gotten worse leading us to 7 days ago when we were informed her condition was critical. At some point her spleen literally split in half leading to an emergency (4 hours) surgery! My husband and I arrived an hour into the surgery and waited. I was terrified for my child and so very worried about all the progress my husband has made over the last (6) months since his own surgery.



Keeping it real

Our youngest daughter (24) lays in a bed in Acute Care now after 4 days in ICU.

At one point I wrote this:
I sit in a chair next to a bed that holds a young woman. In a day, she has lost her spleen, part of her pancreas and a lot of infection. A ventilator breaths air for her body. Tubes coming out of everywhere and are connected to a world of machines. Six bags of liquids keep her sedated, pain free, pumping antibiotics, throughout her body.

Hello and welcome to In The Boon Docks my name is Lisa!
A quick rundown on myself: I am Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, veteran, and artist. In a rural area of West Virginia, USA, my family and I, live with 3 dogs, 7 chickens, a squirrel, and miscellaneous deer (they live in our woods). We grow, can, and freeze, both fruits and vegetables. I will admit I love to blog, blog hop, swap, sew, quilt, crochet, knit, and just about any DIY project. I am a fabric and Aurifil thread lover! Hopefully, some of the things I write about here will interest you and keep you entertained. If so, please leave a comment occasionally and follow. Follow any way you like if I don't have it available, just send me an email…
