I finally got one on camera... it's little but it's THERE!
We're having an okay week.
My eldest daughter has Strep though, and she spent much of the weekend prior to me knowing this with Mommy, and a bunch of it with her little sister too. I'm trying not to be nervous, even though no one else has any symptoms of being sick yet. I'm not succeeding at trying though... I'm just down-right scared. I do NOT want to get sick, but more than that, I do NOT want Annabelle to get sick!
Annabelle is stable and everything is fairly uneventful at the moment. We like uneventful... unless of course it is a new-heart event, then bring it on! She has officially, as of Sunday, been on the transplant list for 2 months. Yesterday was her 2 month anniversary of being rapid responsed back to the PICU, put on heart medicine and vapotherm, and 1a status listed.
I've told you about Anna Reese in the past... please continue to pray for her and her family as they make some pretty big decisions about her care in the future. Pray for peace and for wisdom and discernment, but most importantly pray for HEALING for both her heart and her lungs!
Also, want to reiterate something I said back around Christmas.
I AM HORRIBLE AT SENDING OUT THANK YOU NOTES!
I sent them out the first few months (albeit late) but after that, I just got overwhelmed. With working, even a reduced schedule, it is just hard to fit a lot else in and NOT take up time with Annabelle and my other kiddos, so thankyou notes have fallen by the wayside. I'm so fearful people will see me ungrateful, so please please please know that I appreciate each card, thought, meal and gift you've given. Our family is truly overwhelmed by the kindness of others!
So while I'd still LOVE to have time to get those cards out, please, for now, except this as my heartfelt thanks. We pray God will BLESS you abundantly for the way you've let Him bless us through you!
