Tummy Troubles

Today has been kind of stagnant. She had a stomach x-ray this morning to evaluate her intestines. The results of that showed that she has developed an ileus, intestinal obstruction. We do not believe this to be serious and hopefully it will pass fairly quickly. She has struggled to take in food today. The doctors are wanting her to consume 24 ounces a day which is really going to be a struggle since on a good day she takes in maybe half of that. She has not had a fever and her urine is clearing up. Visitors keep coming and Annabel bids them farewell with all teeth blazing. Thank you everyone for calling, e-mailing, and coming to see her in her time of struggles.

Dear Cathy,

Please know that I am praying for your little angel.

This blog is amazing! Thanks for keeping us updated and the pictures are such a gift! Thank you.

Annabel's smile is contagious and what an amazing sweet disposition your beautiful girl has.

Recently, it would seem that for three steps forward there are two giant ones back and yet the Lord is faithful and Annabel is such a fighter. PRAYING, PRAYING, PRAYING!!!

You are such an inspiration, and a dear friend. I am so glad we have met. Jesus brings us only the best!

May the Lord bless you, keep you and give you His peace.
Love,
Kathy
