Life...........and a Level One Trauma

This isn't exactly the post I was planning for tonight but having missed posting last night, I figured I better post something even if "Life" did jump up and smack us right in the face again here on this Arabian horse farm. From there it's been a harrowing night, I promise I will post details later and tell you the whole story but for now, I'm going to give you the barest of facts.

I was sitting here at the computer at about 6 this evening when Dave came running breathlessly into the house. "MiKael, come out to the barn quick, I just found Lindsay unconscious!" From there, Lindsay was transported to a level one trauma unit where a cat scan found a slight hemorrhage to her brain.

Lindsay is now in the intensive care unit where they will monitor her progress. They will do another cat scan at 3 am to be sure nothing more is developing with that bleed. The doctors expect everything to be fine. This treatment is precautionary they tried to reassure me. They think that Lindsay will probably go home sometime tomorrow.

That doesn't mean I wouldn't be much happier sitting next to my daughter in intensive care than posting here on this computer. But when Lindsay thinks she's "big enough" to be left alone, I have to respect her wishes despite the fact that sometimes it's really hard to do so.

Please, keep Lindsay in your thoughts and prayers!

  16. Oh MiKael,
    I really hope she gets well soon. It's really tough to walk away when the kiddo tells you they're fine and to leave. I hope you find out what caused it and if another episode like this can be prevented. I'm sending lots of prayers and good thoughts your direction.
