Annabel's New Room

Yeast free and full of life, Annabel is definitely ready to get home to her new room! She has a new friend that was kind enough to use her talents to transform Annabel's room into a collage of colors and life. Ashley took bare white walls and turned them into a playful area that Annabel loves to hangout in. Below are photos of Annabel with her special friend and her new room. We are thankful to have people like Ashley in our lives that are able to bring a smile to Annabel's face.

Well, the team made their rounds tonight and have scheduled for her to get a PICC line tomorrow. This is not for certain that it will happen. From what I understand, it places us in line to be scheduled for tomorrow depending on how many other procedures are ahead of her. We are going to continue working on the feeds in hope that she will tolerate the volume in her stomach. The necessary staff will begin to get her meds, antibiotics, formulas, supplies, and equipment setup from the different companies so that we can finish the antibiotics from home. If all goes well, we should be able to head home by Wednesday at the earliest. Thank you all for your prayers. They continue to carry Annabel through these nasty infections and terrible antibiotics. Thanks to all the doctors and nurses back home and here in Houston who continue to work with me and look outside the box for solutions and not get discouraged.

My family is continuing to pray for Annabel. And that she continues to improve and you really do get to go home Wednesday! (I know these hospitl stays are hard on everyone in the family.) I also pray that you don't have to go home without too many new things. I know it feel like these little ones already have enough "accessories."
What a cheerful room Annabel gets to go home too! I love the owls. :)

So cute, a new room for sure. Gone is the cockpit that Ben thought so cool. I love what you did with it, just as sweet as Belle. I hope she gets to sleep in it real soon. God Bless

Way to go God! He is surely carrying Annabel on the wings of an angel thru all this difficulty. Missing her sweet spirit and her precious smiles!
