All moved in...


Annabel's health is better. She is eating well and her energy level is almost back to normal. We have resumed most of our therapy and she is going to school much of the week. This past weekend we moved back into our home that was damaged from the storm. The work was due to be finished on Thursday of this past week, but they are running a little behind. Her room is almost done and we were able to move in. We are still living out of boxes but at this point I am just glad to be all together again. I do believe Annabel thrives on all the excitement (or dysfunction) of a busy home! She is always in someones arms or being entertained.
Tonight my 21 year old called and asked me to bring a thermometer and Tylenol over to his house. He said he felt he had fever and and hurt everywhere. So I sent Mel to pick him up. Sure enough, his fever was in excess of 102. In my book you always need your mommy when sick no matter what the age, right?
Annabel is sleeping through the night again and I am grateful. Thanks to everyone for their prayers and well wishes on our behalf.

Glad your home. It feels better than any place in the world. I'm so happy to hear that Annabel is feeling more like her self. Ash is starting to come around too. Big sigh of relief! Enjoy your home, your baby, and taking care of your son. I love that he knew who could make it better for him! Take care my friend. Trish

Dear Cathy and sweet Annabel,

Thanks for sharing your good news of being home again. So excited to hear that she is feeling so much more like herself and that your routine is getting back to "normal" again.

Hoping your son is feeling better all ready. I know that you are taking good care of him and that he is going to get better faster under your care. Just keep him away from Annabel! :)

So glad your beautiful family is back home. Warms my heart to think of it and in cold Michigan that's a very good thing!

Love you!!!
Kathy

I have to say that she is just the most photogenic little girl! She seems to KNOW she is getting her picture taken, doesnt' she?? I love her smile.

Wa hooooo!!! You are back home! I can imagine it feels great even if you are in boxes.

Annabel looks so good, it seems in the picture that she has grown a bit. Maybe it is the camera angle but she does look a bit bigger. Always suh good medicine for my soul to see her smiling face!
