May 2011 – All ‘WAS’ Well


All WAS well, and I was even getting ready to give you an update about. It would include things like Lil’Sophie is up to 12lbs now, she’s acting and feeling great. She’s learned a few more signs and is getting stronger. She even attempts to try out her legs, although she needs a little support when we put her in a standing position.

But before I got to end my update there, Sophie started spiking a fever of 103. We we’re admitted into St Louis Children’s Hosp yesterday under the care of our liver specialist. They have traced the infection to her Broviac line and she’s getting cycles of powerful antibiotics to kill it off. Her fever has been rising and falling all day. More bloodwork was taken this afternoon and we should know more tomorrow. Obviously, this completely stops all possibilities of a liver transplant if we should get ‘the call’. Our medical team needs to concentrate on getting her to full health before we could consider any transplant options. So it looks like we’ll be on hold for at least a few weeks until she’s a stable candidate again.

Thanks in advance for your prayers. I don’t want to lose sight of the progress she has been making before this bump in the road. We are so thankful!

  5. As I scream at my sons about their grades and gripe about my financial woes your blog reminds me of how much I have to be thankful for. I am so humbled (or smacked up side the head, whichever you prefer). Sometimes it’s just so hard to say how much Sophie impacts our lives. She is constantly in our thoughts, hopes, prayers and plans for the future because we know she will be a part of that. We love you guys all three.


  6. My love and prayers go out to all of you. Jenny, although I am an old friend of Bryce’s and you don’t know me, I am so thrilled you had an uneventful Mother’s Day – I pray for many many more.

  8. Dear Family, Everytime I read your blog about Lil Sophie I stop and pray for you. You don’t know me but I was told about your blog by our Youth Pastor’s wife and have been following what is happening ever since. I will keep praying and hope that she will soon be over this infection and will be healthy enough to have the liver transplant done. Blessings to you.
    In Christian love,
