This isn't exactly the post I was planning for this blog. The one I was working on is about half finished because "Life" jumped up and smacked us right in the face again. From there it was a harrowing night last 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 working on a post about "decisions" 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 are monitoring her progress. They was another cat scan done at 3 am that confirmed there were no changes 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 today however the decision hasn't been made at this time.
That would be much happier sitting next to my daughter in intensive care than posting here on this computer. But not only do we have a lot of horses we are responsible for here 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 walk away and let others take care of her.
I just spoke with Lindsay on the phone and she is very very tired. I can't help but wonder if the doctors haven't decided to release her yet because of this drowsiness. For now we are in a holding pattern.
Please, keep Lindsay in your thoughts and prayers!
