As Leah’s Mummy I must consider all possible options

Leah had her CT scan of her lungs this morning and it showed a significant deterioration since the CT scan done just over two weeks ago when she was already very ill.
The doctors are not hopeful that she will recover.
It is good to continue to hope and pray for a miracle.
However as Leah’s Mummy I must consider all possible options.
Today I have been talking to some professional people who can give advice and guidance regarding end of life care should this be what lies ahead for us.
In an end of life situation ideally I wouldn’t want things to “just happen” – I would like there to be a plan so that there can be dignity for both Leah and for our extended family.
If we don’t need any of these plans it will be wonderful.
In the meantime Leah will be kept fully sedated because the mode of ventilation she currently requires would be uncomfortable for her if she was awake.
The Drs have no new treatment options and will continue with her current treatment plan unless or until she recovers or deteriorates further.
God is in every tomorrow,
Therefore I live for today,
Certain of finding at sunrise,
Guidance and strength for the way;
Power for each moment of weakness,
Hope for each moment of pain,
Comfort for every sorrow,
Sunshine and joy after rain.”
