Just In... The Weekly Report


What a roller coaster of a week it has been. Annabel's recovery is going well. On Tuesday she was eating pixie sticks and drinking gatorade. We also found out that she has a UTI again. Wednesday was her first day back at school and boy was she ready! I think that she has really taken a liking to the daily interaction with other people that she gets at school. Thursday was definitely a work day for her. She went to school then got out early to go to her 4 therapies (Eating, PT, OT, and Speech). By the end of Thursday, Annabel was exhausted. Finally Friday rolls around and she decided that she was so excited about school that she would wake up at 5 to get a head start on the day... needless to say when the bus picked her up she went back to sleep. After getting to school the little girl woke up for the morning announcements and decided she would skip straight to nap time again. As the day slowly progressed, Annabel was setting her own terms of what she would accomplish. She ate all of her lunch as usual and when the time came to take a nap she wasn't tired anymore. 3:00 and school is out for the day, Annabel was put on the bus towards home when she felt the urge to take a third nap of the day... she is starting to take after her older sister with all of these nap times. Since this is unusual behavior for Annabel, I decided to test her urine to make sure the antibiotic was working. Much to my surprise, her bladder infection is still there which explained her behavior. Saturday was Annabel's first wedding to attend. Her cousin got married in Galveston so we took a day trip over to the island. She was all smiles throughout the ceremony and loved to listen to the music afterwards. Saturday night, she got to spend time with LaLa, her mom, and Katie while I went and had a relaxing dinner. It is great to have people outside of the family that love to spend time with this little angel as much as I do. I appreciate everyone that helps pray and care for her. I will try to update more frequently.

I am very glad to see the update. I know you have been busy, but I was suffering from withdrawls. I truly miss her. I hope all continues to go well, especially with the continous feeds. God Bless You and Yours.

It is good to come visit Annabel and see an update. I am praying for a miracle healing for her UTI. They are so uncomfortable and annoying. Praying for her daily to continue to amaze you with her precious life. Have a wonderful day today.
