My parents finally talked to Brigid this weekend.
I try and leave a message of encouragement once a day but I understand my sister is going through a difficult time. I imagine it's hard to pick up the phone and shoot the breeze when your daughter is on life support.
The following is an excerpt of an email I received from my dad yesterday.
Maeve has a small infection (not in her blood) that they think is in her throat. Apparently because of one of the tubes. I think Brig said she had a fever of 104 this weekend. Brigie told told us that Maeve had had 8 operations now (think that included all the heart stuff as well as the opening her up and closing her back up again.
Dad says I can expect a call from Brig sometime this evening so hopefully I'll have more information to report tonight.
Thanks for the positive thinking and prayers for my wonderful niece, Maeve.
