Gabber Goo...

Gabber Goo is another name she has received, this one is from Miss Gracie...I am sure Gabi will appreciate that one later in life as well. Today is another good day. She will be off of her epi at some point today, as well as the bumex. Both of those meds are for blood pressure, but she was on them to increase her urine output. She has continued to pee great. The doctor believes she is dry inside her vessels...yeah, but she is still holding a bit of fluid in her tissue. So she may receive a bit more fluid to flush it out, but we are definitely heading in the right direction still. Her ventilator has been turned down even more than yesterday, she is actually breathing on her own...more than what the ventilator is doing for her, so that is excellent! So they will continue to wean her off of that slowly, but it will still be a couple of days before she is completely off of it. She has not used those muscles in a while so no point of pushing her steps!

Last night I went to Gracie's gymnastics. It was so great to see her. I miss her so much! I got used to having her around all the time, now I would definitely give anything for that. She is such a good little girl...we are so blessed with such wonderful children in our lives. Now we just need to get little angel home so we can all be together again...We are getting closer!!!

Good job Gabi! It is great to hear that Gabi is consistently taking steps in the right direction. Her strength throughout this ordeal has given me hope and courage to overcome the much less significant obstacles in my own life. Thank you for letting us all in on your journey.

Wow! Already off the pain meds - and here you were calling her an addict ;) Hopefully she will continue to not need them - a good sign that she is on her way!! Yah, I can't imagine "Gabber Goo" as a name she will be fond of either, but those are the breaks when you're an Acker. Seems as if God's answer to this one has been "wait" - it's a difficult answer with great lessons and an even greater reward. When you can't be in control, it's a comfort to know that he is.
