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!
