A 4th to Remember...

Well it rained here in KC today and I ain't just talkin outside, this girl pee peed so much it was crazy, over 400 cc's. She had more out than what was being put into her body...Yipee!!! Also we are still weaning off one major blood pressure med. If she continues to respond well to the weaning there is a chance tomorrow morning she will not be on it at all. If we stay on this track there is a serious possibility her chest will be closed up on Friday. We are learning not to hold our breathe around here but she is doing much better than she was before! We are also very excited that she no longer looks like Baby Princess Fiona! As we were leaving we noticed that the puffiness in her ears was gone and she had her beautiful small acker ears back! *wink*wink*

We want to thank our families for making it feel a little more like the 4th of July. They brough BBQ and made all our favorite dishes. Mema Acker made beenie weenies, Mimi Crawford made Cheesy Potatoes, and Aunt Gigi made Dirt Cake...mmm mmmm mmm. Our family has done a terrific job of taking care us of while we are in here. We are extremely lucky to have such a loving supportive family as we all know not everyone has.

Jason, Micah, Gracie, Gabi (Pink and Not as Squishy! haha)

Thank you all SO much for the BBQ last night. It was yummy (especially the dirt cake)! Hope you like Gabi's blanket and new hair-do this morning. I am off until Sunday, but I will be thinking of you all and checking the blog for updates :)

Take Care!
