Wasted Days and Wasted Nights





Well even though the title of this post is a song, we are not singing here! They were suppose to begin feeding her this morning and as of now, NOTHING. She is so weak! I gave her some water(secretly)and she gave me a couple smiles. She just needs some nutrition in her. She is still running a temperature and needing some pain meds. Her abdomen is very tender. We did see a nutritionist today who told us about PEG feedings but she could not order them. It is all up to the doctor. The surgeon came by this morning, but he could not order the feedings. I have become a little vocal on Annabel's behalf. Even though she cannot talk, she is communicating with her pleading eyes and grabs my finger so tight as if to say I am so HUNGRY! They are saying we have to stay 24 hours after the feedings, so we may not be out tomorrow. I guess I need to pray for patience.

Cathy,
Sorry to hear that Annabel is still in the hospital and still not getting anything to eat. Poor little baby. Feeling hungry and not being able to do anything about it is not a good feeling. I hope they can get rid of that temperature, too. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Cathy,

I will be praying that they start feeding Annabel before the day is out. I hate to think of her being hungry after what she has been through. Praying for her temperature to go back to normal too. Asking the Lord to give you peace and rest. Her pictures are so cute.

Love, Laurie in Ca.
