We have a new GI doctor!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our new GI doctors office called today to give us an appt. time. She said I was so lucky because they had a cancellation for this Tuesday. I said GREAT, we will be there. My heart quickly sunk when I realized that I will be at orientation in College Station with my twin daughters. As my entire family will tell you that I do everything for Annabel (they really understand) and I know how important the first step with their college process is. Mel and I both want to be there with them. Before Annabel, they were actually our babies! So now our appointment isn't until August 17th. I have asked the nurse since this new GI took care of Annabel and ran all the motility test in the hospital if he could just call us with a plan of care, summary of findings and then we will see him on the 17th for our appointment. In my heart I know I have done the right thing in choosing to go with my twin daughters.
Annabel will be left in great hands and I do mean great, wonderful and loving hands. The pictures above are Annabel and Rebekah, her nurse. She has been with us most days since coming home from the hospital. She is so good with her nursing skills, but her heart is so sweet and caring. To me she is the total package! I am not glad that Annabel needs the nursing care but if it has to be she is a true joy to have in my home. She is working much overtime because I have turned out to be hard to please. They have sent many other skilled nurses by but I really need to feel like they will do more than just the medical aspects of her care. Annabel loves to be up and around, playing with you and being stimulated with her toys, music and her equipment. She is also a very Godly woman and her voice when she sings hymns to Annabel while rocking her are beautiful.
Of course, then we have Tara who after working all day will be coming each night to sleep with Annabel. It is the only way I can leave her and not be crazy with worry. I am sure she will be so spoiled rotten when we return home. Thank you, Tara for agreeing to miss your other events to be here with your sisters. Also Derek and Linzy will be coming by to check in and play with Annabel, so I am positive I won't be missed!
