The waiting.....

which seems to be the hardest part. Why is it "taking no action" is so much harder than doing something? Thanks to all for the good thoughts and prayers. The doctors at the U of M decided that a liver biopsy was too critical a step immediately. They reviewed what the local dr. had done and then started her, my sweet granddaughter A. on a newer medication to see if they could bring the jaundice down that way. Thus we are in the waiting part for today. I don't think anyone got much sleep last night. We have been so very, very fortunate as a family not to have had these scares before. I'll be back when I have more news *VBS* Hugs, Finn

Oh, so sorry to just learn of Baby A's problems. Yes, waiting is the hardest. Keeping my hands busy with needle and thread has always helped me. Big hugs and positive thoughts coming west from MI. Yes, I just got back.
