Maeve is still in critical condition and her circumstances have not changed since doctors took her off the heart bypass machine yesterday.
Brigid sent me an email letting know Maeve is still actually on life support and has been almost the whole time she has been in the hospital. Maeve was previously listed under stable condition but now is listed as critical.
My niece is still holding on to a lot of fluid and we hope she expels it quickly, allowing doctors to stitch her chest up for a third time.
As I said in my post Friday, Brigid and Steve are trying to stay positive through this whole painful ordeal and are asking the same from their family and friends.
Maeve still has quite a way to go to get to the level of progress she had made prior to Friday's devastating setback but we are quite confident she will grow stronger and healthier in her own time.
Thank you to all of you who have offered many prayers, kind words and messages of support through this painful time. Please keep those prayers coming!
Much love and gratitude,
