2nd Day of School
Today appeared to be a better morning for Annabel. Now that she is on an antibiotic, I believe that she is feeling better. Tara dropped her off this morning curious to see how Annabel reacts to us leaving her again. When Tara was unloading her from the car, her teacher walked up and Annabel gave her a huge smile..... relief for us!! At that point I knew that I was making the right decision. I am anxious now to get through the day to find out what her reaction will be after school. I spoke with the bus company and was able to arrange for the bus to start transporting her this afternoon. 3:15 rolls around and it is time for Annabel to be loading the bus. I was told that she would probably be one of the first to be dropped off so I estimated her arrival around 3:30-3:45. At 4:00, I started to get nervous because the bus had not arrived. At this point Tara is pacing the house and looking out the front door waiting to see Annabel. Finally, I couldn't take it any longer so I called the school and they informed me that they were running late due to a lack of wheelchair ramp on the first bus. At this time I hear a horn honk in the front driveway and my adrenaline starts to rush nervous of how Annabel will react.... She was soo happy when we saw her on the bus and the lady said that she was just singing away the whole way home as if she knew what was going on. It was incredible... a complete 360 from the day before!!! She is just as happy as can be and is smiling for everyone. God has truly blessed my family with this precious angel.
