Just when we thought....

Just when we thought that hospital beds were over with... as of last night Annabel ended up back in the emergency room. Her heart rate was over 200 and she had started to turn color around her mouth so mom called 911. She was in severe pain for about an hour then, after throwing up in the ambulance, she was fast asleep as if nothing happened. In the ER, they x-rayed her stomach and believe that there is a possible obstruction. Texas Childrens Hospital in Houston was contacted so that she can be transferred to where her doctors are, but there are no rooms available so she is ICU here in Beaumont (they are moving her to a floor room soon). It appears that she needs to have the surgery on her bowel sooner than they thought. The doctors are saying that until she is off of the antibiotics for C-diff then surgery isn't an option. I believe this to be good news in the fact that hopefully Annabel can stay in the hospital here in Beaumont until she is done with the antibiotics instead of being so far away in Houston. As of now, she is resting a lot and seems to be doing ok. I appreciate all the prayers that have gotten Annabel through to today and know that the man upstairs has a plan that will all work out in the end.
Thanks,
Tara

Cathy, I don't have the right words. I do know you are so tired, and just want to be home with your whole family. I want so badly to come and sit with you, cry with you, I love you friend. You can do this.

I am so sorry that you are going through this trying time! Like you said, it is probably a great blessing to be closer to home, for now at least, and hopefully they can do surgery soon and sweet Annabel will feel better very soon! I'll be praying!!! I pray that God gives you peace, strength, hope and REST during this time! Hugs!
