A bunch of us are camped up in the waiting room outside of the ICU. We dodged the bullet tonight, but I've never been more scared in my life than when the doctor said, "Anything we do might make things worse, but if we don't do anything, she won't make it."
I don't want to repeat anything Judi already posted, but I've been advised not to read what she posted either, so I won't. For now, Jenni is about as stable as you can get when you're in critical condition (not very). She has a chest tube in each side. The right side is working and the left side appears to be worthless. She also has air around her heart that is affecting her blood pressure.
I believe the prayers helped. The doctor seemed pessimistic when he spoke to me privately but she came through this speed bump okay. With more prayers and perseverance, we can come through this with a positive result... and I'm taking Jenni to Sticky Fingers and The Loft just like I promised. And I'm going to get her a Psycho > Crazy shirt too.
