Resolution of sorts.

Well, the situation in Seattle is not as hopeful as was believed. Raisa continues to put up a fight and her parents are making some decisions about her care as the days go on. Kidney, breathing and learning difficulties can be dealt with but a complete vegetative state will not happen. They are going to begin cutting back on the sedation beginning tomorrow so they can get a better understanding of her brain function. On the drugs it would appear that she has lost all higher brain function but her parents are not giving up on her yet. The next few days will decide what will happen with our precious baby girl's life.
India wanted to say something to her family while they are separated. I tried to get Phaedra to say something on an earlier video but all she did was pull faces and smile bashfully. I'll try again later.

The girls are going to stay with us until this is all finished so their parents know where they are at and they don't have to call around to find them when they have news. This is the bumpiest ride, emotionally, that I have ever been on and I can't imagine how exhausting and draining it has been to the parents. I still covet prayers for her safe return to us and as Kathy Montgomery said yesterday, "It ain't over until it's over!"

That video is very sweet, Pam!! You did a good job on that one! Tell the girls hi and I love them and miss them.

Hey Pam,
I'm thinking and praying about you guys and this baby...When things like this happen it does seem to test our faith but it's very comforting to know God's in control and he has a plan through all this....hang in there...

2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

Thank you Krista.

Thank you too Jaime. I got Phaedra to chat with Tony before she went to bed so her message got to him anyway. I'm gonna keep trying though.
