Wednesday, June 2: Update 2

My dad Tim just flew in from Colorado and I took him in to see Claire. While we were there we were able to meet with the doctor and get a brief update on Claire’s progress.

The infectious disease specialist had told us this morning that there were some abnormalities in her blood work; the doctor this afternoon indicated that it was nothing new and they are treating the infection a little more aggressively.

The doctors will be backing down the pressure on her ventilator a little more in the next couple hours and hope to transfer her to a more passive machine sometime in the next six to eight hours. Our goal is to raise her body temperature to around 36 degrees Centigrade by this evening and keep on track for normal temperature tomorrow morning. It’s an inexact science, but the doctors are practicing this inexact science well.

I will give another update this evening after the shift change and the night doctor comes on board.

  1. Hi Martin Family- My daughter (Makayla) is a friend of Autumn’s, we were there at Autumn’s Birthday party. Not an hour goes by that I dont think about sweet baby Claire and pray for her and your family. Makayla asks about her daily and is sure to mention her in all prayers.

    We (Makayla, my friends, my family and I) will continue to lift Claire up in prayer. Thanks for the updates.

  2. Your posts are such a blessing, Tyler! Thank you for taking this time to update those of us who are praying and following Claire’s progress. There are many prayer groups here in OR praying for all of you and the medical staff and I know that also has extended to our friends and relatives in CA, IN and GA. and places beyond. I’ve sent this blog address to all of my prayer partners.

  3. I do not know how in the world we are connected, through trains of friends, I assume. I just read your blog, as it was sent to me in an email. I cannot imagine the things you’re feeling right now. I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to do, but I know I’m praying for you!
    May God grant you peace and strength. May He heal Claire’s body from every type of infection, and bring her back to FULL brain and physical functioning. May you and all the lives you touch through this unfortunate incident be brought to a closer relationship with Jesus. God bless you all!
    Love in Christ,
