Amazing...

Again, she is amazing! She comes through with flying colors...This will be short.We are in PCU and she is resting peacefully. I think she looks at us and wonders why we can't pick her up. She has longing in those beautiful eyes. According to the neurosurgeon, everything went well. She tolerated the surgery as well as he expected. Now only time will tell what issues it may have resolved. I just want her to be free of pain. She stayed in recovery a little longer due to nausea and just a few low sats but overall she is doing well. They want her to stay in PCU to be monitored. My guess is if she has a good night maybe by tomorrow go to a regular floor. She has to be flat on her back for two days. They doctor says he will visit with us on Monday and then I think if all goes well we may get to go home. YEAH!

Thank everyone for the many calls, emails, text and comments. One thing that is sure is that with Trisomy 18 it is hard to be put to sleep and she continues to come through. It is only through God's graces and prayer that she does so well. Will update maybe later tonight.

Glad that the worst fears of not coming off extubation is unfounded. Annabel has gone through so much each time with such resilence. am so proud of her.

Cathy,

Such relief to finally get online and see that sweet Annabel is doing so amazingly well. Hoping you have felt all my "Michigan" prayers coming straight from NYC!!!

Have been praying whenever you two come to mind, which is so often Cathy. Every time I wake up at night (sleeping on the living room couch, this is often) I wake up thinking of Annabel. Praising God that your little fighter is doing so very well. Thanking God for all the good medical and nursing care and thanking Him most of all for TEAM ANNABEL!!!

I am using my son's amazing desktop and I know I have mentioned this before but Annabel's pictures are outstanding on his BIG (Apple) monitor. Even though she is not as bright eyed and bushy tailed as usual, she is stunningly beautiful. (And by the way, you don't look any worse for the wear girl! How do you do it?!?)

Loving you girls and praying much!!!
(Home tomorrow and will be monitoring for updates!)
