Saturday Night Week 3

Another day has gone by. It is amazing how time is so scrambled here inside the hospital. I can't believe how fast the clock is ticking here. We are pretty much in a routine but it seems like time jumps forward without us realizing it. Again it is 10pm and I am just sitting down to write.

Vittoria has done well today. Her lungs are clearing up a bit. I can't wait to see what tomorrows x-ray reveals. They have been sounding better and she is on less and less oxygen. She has even been passing the liquids out very well too. As our very funny South African nurse says, "she's peeing like a race horse..." Doesn't sound that exciting but considering where we have been the last little while, it is exciting news.

Vittoria has had her more awake times. It is so nice to have her acknowledge that you are there and answer questions. I can't wait until we can get the breathing tube out and she can talk with us again. I miss that cute little voice. I can't wait until she can let us know how she feels and what she wants to do. We miss her dearly.

As another Sunday comes around, please keep us in your prayers. We need that big miracle, the gift of life. Please keep praying for us and especially our sweet little princess, Vittoria.


  1. I'm thinking she'll have a little bit of the smoker's rasp in the beginning. Which will be funny since it's coming from this tiny (strong) girl :)

  2. It is so good to read these more encouraging posts, we cheer her on with each improvement and contiually have a prayer in our heart for each one of you.
