Terrible Tuesday

Just a quick update to let everyone knows that Regan was admitted into St John's today. She has pneumonia in all four quads of her lungs. Brian and I have been trying to the best of our ability to get her better but Regan continued to get worse. Regan's Primary Care Doctor actually came to our house this morning to see her and we felt it might be better for her to be admitted.
So she and I rode by ambulance to Springfield. Regan seemed to enjoy the ride. We were greeted by Jen, Amy and Buffy who are some of our favorite women who work on the 5th floor here. We also have one of our very favorite nurses Claire who we actually spent a Thanksgiving with a few years ago. She also used to work in Radiology and was Rylee's buddy from there.
She got Regan's IV in on the first try....PRAISE GOD! I do not think that has ever happened.

Regan is doing better since we arrived. Her respiratory rate was 90 when we arrived and is already at 54. She likes this place. We are under the care of Dr Lower. We love her. She knows Regan well and is diligent in Regan's care.

Today I am reminded that God is the source of all things good......I keep thinking....
"Come thou fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing your praise, streams of mercy never ceasing calls for songs of loudest praise."

I'll update more later.....probably on Wednesday.

Sending prayers to all of you. The IV antibiotics and extra fluids should do the trick. Stay strong.
