Sarah Update

Filed under: Our Work,Personal — Adam Heine @ 8:01 AM

After 4 days in the ICU (with their strict visiting hours, unconscious patients that are a little scary, and the constant noise, noise, noise, noise), Sarah finally has her own private room. It’s like a hotel room, with a TV/DVD player, a fantastic view, and a wall painted just for kids (okay, so not a hotel room, but Sarah likes it and is really glad to be there).

Because Sarah’s condition is not all the way better yet, and because we can be there 24/7 now, one of us needs to be there 24/7. So this adds a different stress on our family, but we’re confident we can work it out. And anyway, it’s worth it for Sarah.

The doctor says the rupture has closed (it was diagnosed as a subarachnoid hemorrhage, for those of you who’ve been asking), but it could rupture again. Sarah is going to stay under observation until they can schedule another CT scan sometime this week (but not today, cuz today’s a holiday . . . of course). The doctor will decide what to do after that.

Cindy and Anica spent last night with Sarah, which I think made her really happy. She’s enjoyed playing and sharing her bed with little Anica. Cindy says Sarah’s walking to the bathroom by herself now (awesome news, because up until yesterday, she’s basically been lying down the whole time), and she’s eating a little more.

Keep praying for total healing, for a CT scan early Tuesday, and a diagnosis that lets her come home sooner rather than later. Thank you so so much for all your prayers and support. We haven’t been able to respond to everybody, but we read every e-mail, every Facebook comment, every tweet. We know beyond any doubt we are not alone in this. Thank you for being family with us during this time 🙂


  1. Praise God, He indeed is good.

  3. Praise God! So happy to hear Sarah finally got a private room and that you are able to be with her around the clock now. Even happier to hear that she has not rebled. We’ll be continuing to pray for her full recovery and for strength and patience for your family while you are briefly separated. We love you all!
