Quiet and stressLESS!


 Annabel is growing up. Each time I look at her I see more of a little girl and not the baby that I once held. She is going to school most days and has been back into therapy for the last week or so. She continues to amaze and inspire us all who know her!
Sorry for the lack of updates. After our episode in September nothing seems of any consequence to write about. She is still on antibiotic for the c-diff and the abcess. Can't clear this up but we are making slow progress. Her eating is affected by the antibiotics that she takes so very soon I hope to see progress in her eating by her g-button.

The picture below is of our new beach house. We decided to build back since the last hurricane. We are getting excited as it should be ready sometime in April. This gives us something to do each weekend as we drive there to make decisions and see the progress.

Thank you for your continued support and caring of Annabel.

Thank you for the update! I've been thinking about and praying for Annabel for years... and especially since I read the last post about her being sick again. I don't think I'll meet Annabel this side of heaven... but some day, I will. I'll see her smiling face there before me. In a long, long time, that is. I'm so thankful that God has seen fit to allow me to stumble across your writings so long ago, and even more thankful that He has given this world Annabel. She is a blessing, to so very, very many.

Oh, she does look like a big girl. I remember her from my Rehab 4 Kids days and I keep up with her through Edie. What a miracle! She is so beautiful...and, you are right...so grown up!

Oh that beach house is beautiful. I bet that Annabel will love going there with you.

My nephew that has Trisomy 18 is now 7 months old. He just had lower jaw surgery, his diaphragmatic hernia fixed and tubes put in his ears. He just got off the ventilator yesterday! We're so happy about that! I've been busy taking care of his brothers.
