Runny Poo and Green Snot!!!

This describes our past week. Before this began Annabel had her mini-one button replaced. The last one was a little too long and therefore stuck out too much. This time around it was much easier and almost no recovery. Annabel's little friend Mallorie (Connie's daughter) also had hers replaced and we took a picture before going into our separate rooms.
Several of you out there in blog land know Laurie from Ca. She has a huge heart for our special babies and is a major prayer warrior for our babies and us mommies! She is a huge source of support with her kind words and inspiration. Today in the mail we received this precious Bundibunny in honor of Annabel and her new button. This cute little bunny is sporting his own G-tube and comes with his little story. Laurie, this is such a sweet gesture and he is the silkiest, softess bunny ever, thank you from Annabel and myself.

This next picture is of Annabel leaving the hospital in the sunshine sporting her cool shades! As any of you know with these Trisomy 18 babies the sunshine is very painful to their eyes. That is one of the greatest things I learned at the SOFT conference in reference to their eyes.
Now for the runny poo and the green snot! No I promise no pictures about this! We will be going to the doctor tomorrow for an antibiotic. My suspicion is that the UTI she had a couple weeks ago didn't totally clear up. Still show many white blood cells and this usually turns into a respiratory infection. Don't think she has anything contagious with her tummy but her intestines I think are just messed up. She want to eat but don't think she is digesting right. Nothing ever makes her stools loose but as of late we are struggling with this. I do believe she had a virus about 10 days ago and her gut just hasn't returned to normal yet.
Annabel's big sisters, Carly and Colette had a soccer tournament this past weekend. The weather cooperated about 1/2 the weekend but Annabel and I spend lots of time in the car with her watching her videos and me watching from the car. They had a great tournament and came in 2nd. Big sissy Carly ended up with a cleat to the mouth (shown in picture)and three jammed fingers due to someones foot kicking the ball as she was stopping it at the goal. She is the goalie for the team! There is also the team picture and they are the two in the middle on the back row. Go Kelly Dawg's for a great weekend of play!

So sorry that Annabel is bakc to the snotty's I hate those! I hope that she is not feeling too bad and that the bug doesn't stay around long.
If you haven't been there you may want to hop to Magdalena's
Hold tight to your little miracle, she is such a blessing. There is such a shine in her face.... I can only think that it is a reflection of God's love to us. Truley Cathy she is so beautiful.

I just love seeing Miss Annabel and Miss Mallorie together. This picture is so adorable. My two girls in the same picture:) I am so sorry for Carly's rough soccer day. We used to coach our boys team and I loved it. Hard sport and not for sissies. Josh ate his braces many times. I hope she is okay.

I am glad the bunny is okay and she looks so cute with it. I bought an extra one for me that sits on my computer shelf. Guess who I think of each time I look up?
I love you girls and hope Annabel kicks the snot really soon. This has been a rough winter on babies.

Love and Hugs, Laurie
