The life story of Annabel Grace Shelander... living with Trisomy 18, the struggles along the way, and the triumphs that she continues to have.

This is what we call circle time at our house. I walked in her room the other day and Rebekah our nurse had all this set up and Annabel was reaching for whatever toy she wanted. It was just a few months ago that we couldn't get Annabel to play with anything. She really didn't like to grasp toys. Now she reached for almost anything! She continues to still run fever up to 101. She has had 3 episodes of vomitting tonight. The lab only ran one blood culture and they aren't sure if it is the periphial or the central line culture. So today we went back and had two more drawn. We don't think this is where the temperature is coming from since she isn't getting any sicker. She is tired and her coloring is poor. She is requiring more oxygen the last three nights, so something is up. Maybe just viral and hanging on longer than we expect. She does have playful period and for this we are thankful.
