I didn't know where else to put this. On the 19th of January my dd Selah was hit by a car on the way to the school bus. She was in a coma and now she has lesions on her brain and is heavily sedated and we don't know the extent of her injuries. We are in a country were we don't speak the language and it's almost unbearable the pain we are in. All the while I'm trying to care for the baby. My milk has dried up and now I'm having to use formula. Please keep us in your prayers right now. Thank you.

our thoughts and prayers are with you and your dear daughter.

beep 02-03-2010 02:43 PM

We are thinking of you. I am the survivor of a childhood brain injury, so I can imagine some of what your family must be going through.

Oh Lindsay I am so sorry you have to go through this. I hope her stay in hospital is brief. I have a medela SNS I never ended up using if you would like to supplement at the breast.

I know how awful it is to be going to ICU and waiting for brain scan results. Ask the doctors to write the prognosis down each time they give you an update. That way if you don't take everything in at the time you can have a look later and get someone to help translate.

SilvanaRose 02-03-2010 05:22 PM

Omg I am so sorry. I don't even know what to say. You are in my thoughts right now, I can't imagine what you must be going through. Please consider the offers of help from the people that are closest to you....We are here for you. s

I will be praying for a speedy and complete recovery for your darling girl and for strength for you and your family.

Lindsay, you and your family are in my thoughts.

I have been in a similar situation (not my child but my husband). Unfortunately I can imagine how your heart is breaking right now. I can only imagine how much harder it would be to have a newborn too!

Please keep us posted, we will be praying for your sweet girl.

Hugs to you.

DDCC- I am so sorry to hear that. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers...wishing your daughter a quick and full recovery.

dirtyhipegirl 02-04-2010 01:38 PM

Thank you all. It's so incredibly hard to see my dd right now. She was known for how very smart she was, she always has been very bright. Now she can't look at me or talk and her body moves uncontrollably. The lesions in her brain are healing but they found yesterday that there are many lesions all over instead of the few they previously thought. Good news though, it looks like we will probably be going to Washington D.C. in the next week or two. The hospitals here just don't have the amount of care she will need. Right now I have no reason to believe that she can't recover even if it seems far fetched in the eyes of the doctors. Thank you all again.

evinmom 02-04-2010 02:43 PM

Your family remains in my thoughts. I hope she will receive the care she needs in the States. I can only imagine the pain you are in.

If she's healing, that has to be a good sign.

I can't imagine the pain you're in. You're in our prayers.
