Praying that Annabel will get to go home very soon...
We came back home on Friday after my parents had regained their power. Even though they are approx. 20 miles from our home, I thought worse case scenario we would just stay with them until power return. My son who live just a few blocks from us regained his power on Friday night late after curfew. We filled our Suburban with family and ventured out the few blocks praying not to get caught. If it were not for Annabel's health we would never have gotten out. We have been at my son's home since then. At least we have power, so I don't want to whine.
My prayer is that soon we will get our power. All of our neighbors, front, side and back have theirs since Friday night late. We do not understand what the issue is, but trust that the problems will be resolved. Annabel looks weak and tired. She thrives on being in her own room and her own home. She was able to spend time with her Loma and Lanny on Saturday. This is so good for Annabel. I am also praying this 3rd antibiotic is working. This weak look she has may also mean that the medicine is not clearing up the 2nd bacteria within 2 weeks. Will give it a couple days then may need to see pediatrician here at home. It is so comforting to know that we are HOME and he (pedi) is right around the corner.
Wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who read Annabel's blog. Everyone has such a busy life and we are sure if it were not for each one of you praying for her, her outcome could be so different.
