For those of you praying - and thank you! - here’s the latest.
She is currently on an ECMO machine for her heart and lungs, as she had two more cardiac arrests. However, her chest x-ray now looks better than it has since she was admitted, and they are beginning to slowly wean her off the ecmo back onto the ventilator.
The good news - her kidneys are now outputting urine, so they are taking her off dialysis. If she still needs help, they will obviously give her some support, but they do not want her to become dependent on the machine.
Her mother had this to say in an email:
“This trial is teaching me many things among them how important and
how powerful faith, hope and charity are. The top notch medical care
she is receiving from Children’s Hospital is such a blessing, but has
its limitations. Our Father and Heaven doesn’t have those
limitations. My visiting teacher reminded me of this scripture: For
if there be no faith among the children of men God can do no miracle
among them; wherefore, he showed not himself until after their faith.”
She also strongly feels that while Diana has a long way to go, her continued progress this week is a direct result of the faith and prayers of loved ones and strangers across the country.
Thanks again. Keep praying!
