He told me that he honestly did think that this treatment would help and would give her a better shot so i relunctantly agreed to wait until tomorrow. I really hope that we will look at her xrays tomorrow and they will give dr bosch a big head and he can tell me i told you so. I cant keep doing this everyday. I cant risk permantly damaging her airway for the hopes to avoid a trachea. We have to let her try. We have to give her a chance.
As i've sat by Capris bed I have been reading a Jodi Picoult book. She is one of my favorite authors and as i was in a hurry one of the first days i was here i saw the section with her books and quickly grabbed one off the shelf that i hadnt read. As I have gotten into the book I have discovered its a book about a mother who lost her child and husband while she was pregnant. After she gave birth she discovered her child had a heart issue and is now waiting for a new heart. I dont know how i picked the one book out of two shelves that had to be about a heart kiddo but now i am too far into it to stop. Tonight It talked about her daughter going into arrest. Watching them place the pads and her daughter jacknife off the bed. It brought back our first night in the ICU a month ago. watching them shock Capris body again and again. I will never be able to get that out of my head. It is something that will haunt me forever.
