R & R...

This last week has been very relaxing! Tomorrow we will be returning to school and I can't wait to see Annabel's face as she enters her classroom. It warms my heart so much to know that she is so happy when I am away from her. We did enjoy this past week sleeping until whenever, staying in our P.J.'s if we wanted and just playing. No routines, schedules just plain hangin out! I think it is good for her little body to have some downtime. She will also begin her therapy tomorrow and I am anxious to see what she remembers. She did have a tummy bug the past couple of days, but hopefully she is on the mend. This week she should have her G-button replaced. The one(called mini-one) that was just placed a couple weeks ago is a little too long. It doesn't fit in her tummy like it should so he is going to put in one that is a bit shorter. The button is new to our area and he didn't think it came in any other length than what he gave her, but thank you to Connie, she researched and found a length in between what she had and what is now in her tummy. Also, this time he will sedate her so maybe mommy won't be such a wimp!

The photos are just a few of our week of rest and relaxation....

Hi Cathy,

I am so glad to hear that Annabel is better. She looks so great in the pictures, too cute!! I think she will surprise you in therapy and what she remembers. She is so proud of herself and her accomplishments, she will want to perform!! I love you girl and am glad your hang-out time was good for both of you.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

As always the pictures just make my day. She looks thrilled with her haul from Christmas. Keep us posted on her upcoming procedure, we will keep her in prayer.
We also enjoyed our down time but back to school now and I bet Annabel will love the stimulation!

Can't wait to hear how going back to school and therapy goes.

Prayers continue!

Doesn't it feel great to just RELAX with no schedules! Thats all we've been doing too. Sadly my food intake had been on the relaxed side too. Having to tighten up on that now... well maybe I will start tomorrow!

Matt is in Huston for work... wish I could of gone with him and somehow hooked up with you!

Mommy is not now nor has she ever been a whimp when it comes to making sure Annabel gets what she needs. Always in my prayers.
