So Happy...

Annabel is the happiest little girl. She cannot do much, she simply lays still on her bean bag and watches her cartoons. She gives us huge smiles and gives us twinkles with her eyes. We love holding her but she is still uncomfortable in her abdomen. I was struggling with the tube feedings since coming home, but this morning it went very smooth. Several people at the hospital ask me if I had watched a DVD and had been trained on tube feedings and I told them no. They said "don't worry someone will train you." When they mentioned that we were being discharged I asked the nurse about the training and they told me it wasn't necessary. Well when we arrived home I felt very uncomfortable about how hard to push to get the tube in. I found out that I was not given all the equipment. One very important piece was the decompression tubing that we do prior to the feeding tube. Two very important people locally came to the rescue. I have always appreciated my friends, but Annabel has brought into my life the most wonderful people.
There is not a day that goes by that I am not reminded of how truly awesome our God is. I am constantly reminded of His goodness in the face of Annabel. When life seems tough or I feel the need to whine, all that is needed is to look into her eyes and her innocent being.

God IS so good isn't He? He always sends the right people at the right time to help us. I am praying for Annabel's abdomen to heal from tenderness and enjoy being home with her wonderful family. She sure is one precious little girl and I know she blesses your family so much. Have a wonderful weekend.
