Sweet nurse...

This is Annabel with her sweet nurse Rebekah. We have been blessed with her for the last two weeks. She is so careful with all of Annabel's needs. She loves to bathe her, dress her and make sure she is always matching with her bow and most of the time even her Coban wrap on her central line. I am so thankful for her positive outlook and the can do attitude about everything. She is a hard worker and is with us several days a week fro 12 hrs. days. I am praying that she is able to stay with us for a good long time. My back is all the better for having her.
As far as Annabel's feedings she is up to a gigantic amount of 8mls. per hours. She came home at 5 mls. from the hospital. Already her liver enzymes are up and they have never been up. they are adjusting her lipids so we will pray, but extra motivation to see if she can tolerate foods.
Praying that we have some results this week via phone or I will have to get ugly, and I so hate to do that! Again, thank you to all the emails and text with your prayers and sweet thoughts. I haven't been able to sit and answer anyone but please know I read all of them.

Just wanted to say we are ALWAYS thinking of y'all!
We love Annabel so much, and everyone who opens my fridge wants to know "who that pretty little girl is?"--which provides me with the perfect chance to tell them all about "AWESOME ANNABEL"!!!
Lots of love and continued prayers for your entire family.

P.S. I will update you about Sage through email later on.

I understand the ugly part. It seems like I was ugly the better part of 20 years!! It's great that you can have a nurse; in the "old days" that was not possible, no matter what the problem, unless you were wealthy. Prayers for Anabel and wishing you all a happy Fourth!

Hi Cathy,
So glad to hear that Annabel is home and she is tolerating her increased feeds. Praising God with you for your sweet new nurse. I pray God gives you the rest that you need. Be strengthened!
