I do want to begin by thanking God for cradling Annabel in His gentle embrace yesterday and during the night. She rarely cries, but she was obviously very uncomfortable during the night. This morning she is laying very still and prefers flat on her back. I am so thankful for the wonderful doctors and nurses that cared for Annabel and continue to give her the best of care. They all comment on what a sweet patient she is to have in their care.
Well it has been since Monday night about 8 p.m. since Annabel has had any food or drink. They would have allowed her clear liquids up until noon yesterday, but she refused anything that was offered. The only liquid she likes is her formula, so I do believe she is hungry at this point. We are waiting on the GI team to come by and begin slow feeds. We have been told by the surgeon today that we will not be going home. She is running a temp, which I think is normal after surgery.
Again, I would like to thank everyone for all the calls and prayers for Annabel. God has been so faithful in His care for Annabel and continues to bless us through her life.
