Her and Matthew made it safely to Minnesota but Jill cannot post updates on her blog from the hospital. So I am privileged to be her and Matthew's little carrier pigeon while they are there. Jill can still view all of your comments though, so post away!
Words from Jill:
We finally got word at 8:45pm that the plane had leftand was headed for Omaha. There had been more urgent kids that needed to travel, and so we got bumped. By the time they landed at the airport, then rode in an ambulance to the hospital, it was 10:30 ( I think, my brain is mush). It took a while for them to get report and load Matthew. They, at their discretion, could also decide if I was able to ride along. I was petrified that I would not be able to ride along and then have to get in the van and drive 6 hours in the middle of the night. Thankfully, they allowed me to go. We got to the plane (it was a small "fixed wing" medical plane) and I think the fight was about 1 1/2 hours. It was a nice flight and Matthew tolerated it well. I typically have a little bit of anxiety flying, but I was surprisingly at peace. We knew we had so many prayers traveling heaven ward!!
After we landed, the ambulance was by the tarmack waiting for us. We loaded in and it was a quick trip to St. Paul Childrens. When I looked at the clock, it was 1:30 A.M.
Report was given, blood was drawn and Matthew's EEg was hooked up. We were admitted to the PICU, but the plan for the day is to get Matthew to the epilepsy unit. He needed to be admitted to the PICU so it was a "lateral" transport (I think that's the right word). Basically he was taken from a PICU, so he had to go to a PICU.
Thank you Kristen, for keeping all of our friends and family updated!! I totally forgot I couldn't access my blog at this hospital. Kristen will do a fantastic job of keeping you all updated while I am here. I will probably send her more update this afternoon/evening and let you all know what's up.
I can't wait to see how God is going to work through the neurologists today. I'm ready to get my baby back!
