An apple a day...
Annabel is back on TPN and Lipids. She is off of any thing into her gut unless it is medicine. They are trying to rest her gut again in the hopes that it will help it to begin working again. She is doing fine and seems so happy. That is the crazy thing about TPN/Lipids. She is stronger and outwardly healthier than ever. I try to just look at her day to day and enjoy all these strong hugs and kisses she love to give. She stands so tall now and is doing well in her therapies. She isn't weak like before the TPN. But in my low times I get too focused on what is happening inside of her with the TPN/Lipids and her liver. My sweet nurse constantly reminds me to focus on quality of life, meaning today. I am trying and she makes sense! I am still desperately praying that she will again take food into her precious tummy.
The pictures below were in celebration of Derek's 29th birthday. Oh no, I can't be that old! But I wouldn't trade a day of being this old, or wouldn't have my oldest and first born son! Linzy's family joined us for his birthday along with my Tyler and Tara. Of course, Carly and Colette are off at school. Cindy, Linzy's mom make the most wonderful red velvet cupcakes with the creamiest icing. Thank you Cindy for supplying Derek's birthday treats and for David joining us after a long hard day at work!
