No pictures, no smiles...

Oh well I need to be grateful of the well times. She can get sick very quickly. While at church Sunday evening we noticed her coughing and she had not been prior to this. I just assumed maybe someones perfume was bothering her. Wrong! She fell asleep about 9p.m. then woke up around 10:30p.m. and never went back to sleep until about 6:15 a.m. Precious baby was so miserable and was just choking on her mucos. She doesn't move this very well, it just sits. She slept a few hours in the a.m. then a little more in the afternoon. The tube feedings came in handy and I was able to get her feedings in. Again last night she fell asleep around 9 and by 11 p.m. she was awake and so uncomfortable. The only position was up and on my chest. Needless to say I am tired! Today it looks like the mucos is breaking up and I am hoping for a much better night tonight. Let me not end this without thanking God that we do not have a urinary to go along with this. Usually they go hand in hand and I am thanking God that this is just a summer cold. Hopefully soon she will be back to her smiley little self and sleeping better. Of course, then mom can quit whinning.

Oh Cathy, I am so sorry! I know that Belle has a hard time moving mucus, and of course there is no sleep for the Mommy! Praying for a clear nose and lots of sleep for the both of you! Please call and let us know what we can do!

Its strange...A cough can suddenly mean so much now, with my other kids it was no big deal, infact I enjoyed the cuddle time. Now a cough means worry, hospitals sometimes, and severe sickness.
I pray she feels better, and you get some rest.

Cathy,

I am praying that Annabel's cold breaks up quickly and goes away. I am thankful to hear that there is no urinary infection to go with it. This is good. I hope you girls can get some good and sound sleep soon. I am praying for everything else for you too.

Love and Hugs, Laurie in Ca.

Cathy, I hear your tired heart! I know I am responding late and I hope by now that things have cleared up for Annabel and that you have found time for rest. Abby has been fighting a cold for the past few day also and it's the same yucky mucus! I am greatful that we have a suction machine that I can get it out for her so she can get sleep. Let us know how your doing? I pray things are looking better. You are in my thought and prayers! Tam

Get well, Bell-Bell. I want to see you, so much. Ben says you look great in your suit, and I love the crossed ankles.

We love you dearly
