Hi folks,
I know no other way to say this, but to be blunt. Dawn crashed last night, and did not receive oxygen for a period of time.I thought we had lost her. The crash team responded marvelously, but the extent of the damage if any to her brain is not known. Today she had another episode where her body tried to shut down. They bought her back, but again with the drop in oxygen and blood pressure, more damage man have been done. The neurology team has been brought in and will start assessing. There is swelling on the brain, but she does have brainwaves. Her brain may be perfectly fine,or it could be severely damaged. Everything around her seems to work in 48 hour increments. They tell me we will know for sure by Sunday. In the interim, the hospital has asked me the questions I have been dreading. Please continue your thoughts and prayers for Dawn, but also for everyone who loves her. Hopefully when the tests come back her brain will be fine, and they can continue to fight the H1N1. On that note, the cultures finally confirmed that she has virulent strain of the virus, but we already knew that. I am off quarantine, but she is not obviously.

Thank you all again,

Bob
Poor sweet Dawn - This is so upsetting

This is just unbelievable. I just cannot believe that she will be anything other than ok. My prayers and thoughts will continue to go out to her and to her family who must be scared beyond anything I can imagine. And to everyone else, hug your loved ones. Hold them close. This is just an eye opener that life is precious, but can change without warning and we really cannot take a second for granted.

I am sad to hear the update but I am also holding onto his words that her brain might be fine. I am sending positive thoughts your way Dawn and much love. I am going to get my mil to add her to the convents prayer group.

I know it may sound silly but I lit a candle I have for her tonight. It's called a candle of hope. It had a really nice poem that came with it, wish I still had it.
Anyway, just kinda felt like in my own way I was showing support. Anyone else care to light one for Dawn as well?

And hello from DLP to everyone else! Internet connectivity is very expensive here so I have not been able to use my iPhone. Today was our second day in the park. It is beautifully decorated for Christmas and crowds are low. Basically a walk on for everything except for a visit with Santa which was over an hour wait, but you gotta do it!

High points: Space Mountain which goes upside down and is just beautiful. Pirates which has all the familiar elements but put together in a different order. The Phanton Manor which has a great story line with the bride and is a little creepier. Thunder Mountain which is on its own little island and is long and fun. The castle which has a dragon in the caverns underneath. And Fantasyland which just shouldbe better in Europe. The second park Disney Studios did not impress with few rides which all seemed to be closed. And Disney Village is not as nice as Downtown Disney. I did convince DH to get the annual passes which are actually less expensive than three day park tickets.

I have some iPhone photos which I can share with more details once we get back to Switzerland

Tomorrow we drive into Paris to see SacreCour and Eiffle Tour. And to get some good food!

More later...
Jen
I am so jealous of you Jen. You guys are living a wonderful adventure in Europe. Granted you cant do laundry on sunday, but its a give and take world. Can't wait to see the pcis.

Thanks for the update.

How sad is all of this. I just can't get my head around whats going on. Hard to believe that a month ago we were all having such a fun time at the TOT party and Sally's birthday. Continued prayers.

I think that's a great idea, Janelle, and I'm going to light a candle for Dawn right now. I am really not one to pray, but this whole situation has really got me thinking.

Mel when I read your post it took my breath away! This scares me to death and I am so scared for her. I am afraid to come on here every day for what I might read. I am praying and praying and hoping for the best but am so afraid of something bad happening. Dear Lord PLEASE keep our Dawn safe. And Dawn please be strong and keep fighting!!!

Continued thoughts and prayers!!!!
