Anyway...Spencer's family and Adam came up to keep us company while we waited. It was 5:00 pm or so before Nikki could go back and see him. I didn't see him until after shift change and after I took Adam to work. So it was about 9:00 pm when I saw him. They had him hooked up to a ventilator, chest tubes, IV's, you name it he was probably hooked up to it. It was kind of a scary reality in a way. Nikki stayed over at our house because we live really close to the hospital and they live in Layton, which is about 30 minutes from here. I wanted her to be close in case something happened. I had a restless night for the most part but no phone calls all night. Needless to say, it was a rough week.
BUT today, I received good new from Nikki! Spencer is now off the ventilator and is breathing on his own! Yesterday, he was awake, alert, able to sit up and stand! I can't believe what a miracle this is and I honestly feel like it was because of all the prayers that people said. People from all over the country were praying and keeping Spencer and Nikki in their thoughts. It was the most amazing thing to see the power of prayer at work. I just want to say that I am thankful to have these two in my life. Nikki and I can lean on each other when our husbands are sick and that is the best thing to have because a lot of people don't understand what it really means to be a CF wife. Also, I want to thing all the girls in the CF Wives group! They were there in a sense to help Nikki through this scary time. And to everyone else that prayed and kept them in their thoughts. ♥
I am so thankful for my husband for being there with us! And to Jody for bringing us food and drinks! It was super helpful.
