Happy 7 Months, Baby Girl!!!

It seems like only yesterday I saw Gabi's face for the first time. It has been the single most amazing moment I ever experienced, besides marrying her daddy of course! Well nobody celebrates like we do. When I woke up this morning Nurse Zabrina and Nurse Janis had our baby girl all dolled up. She has a bright fun blankey with jungle animals on it. She even had an outfit on that she has never gotten to wear...and of course her signature do...piggies!!! Nurse Zabrina was not our nurse last night, Janis was...but as soon as I told Zabrina about Gabi's b-day she knew she wanted to be part of our celebration. She even made her a sign! Zabrina, we cannot thank you enough for how much you have taken interest in our entire family. We look forward to seeing you every weekend. It definitely makes a mommy and daddy sleep better, just knowing you will be right there if needed. And tell your little Dylan we will have to get our kids together sometime, so Gracie can meet her "boyfriend" :)

As far as today's report a few fevers, so cultures were drawn, but nothing other than the UTI. We have increased her feeding from 10 cc's to 15 cc's this morning, and then this afternoon from 15 to 20 cc's. But as of a few minutes ago, they had to stop her feeds because she has not been peeing. She is getting very puffy again. Oh Lord please help my baby, do not let us go backwards. We are still very concerned about her kidneys, they are still very weak and would not take much for a set back. So for the next hour we will wait for some labs to come back and hopefully have a better idea of what is going on.

I will report shortly!!

Well, we got results back and of course, we don't know. So we have no answers and we are worried sick! Jason said it best, I am so tired! I agree, we are just lookin for some sort of break.
Continue to pray hard and hopefully we have a better take on things tomorrow!

An Isabella update...
She did not have a good day. She needs our prayers more than ever. She crashed today and had a seizure. Which then in turn they think caused her to lose almost 100% of her sight and most of her hearing. This was devastating for her parents. She was doing good yesterday, they were actually talking about going home Friday. And then today took a turn for the worst. So please pray for her and her parents to continue to be strong and regain health!

Happy 7 months, Gabi!!! You looked gorgeous in your pictures, but I am sure it's hard not to when your beautiful. We celebrated Kaden's birthday today as well (his b-day isn't until the 14th however). We pray that the docs can find some answers for all of these fevers and why they won't go away. We know that you all need a break, especially little Gabi who has been working so hard. So have the docs decided for sure that they want to do the trach this week or is the fever thing going to keep it from happening? You two are doing an amazing job at hanging in there (I know I've told you that before)and for that your bond with Gabi will be even greater than before all of this had happened. You are amazing parents!!! Keep it up!! Take care and sweet dreams Gabi. "Kaden's mommy"

Hi sweetie. Hang in there. My computer has been down so I haven't been able to read up on Gabi lately. Poor angel baby, she is such a fighter. She is so lucky to have such wonderful loving parents. I can't imagine what you are going through and I know it must be hardest thing ever to go through. You all are in my prayers. Please let me know if you need anything.

Love ya,

Happy 7 months Gabi, you know I saw your sweet little face the same time as your mommy & daddy for the first time...but I also remember the first time I saw you on the ultrasound I came home & told Papi that the minute I saw you I fell in love. I love you so much little girl, you keep fighting. I heard the doctor say how tough you are and he ain't seen nothing yet. God sent you here for a reason and you have alot to accomplish. Stay strong!! You look so beautiful in your birthday pics...Love & Kisses.

Love Mimi T.

To Isabella and her family: God bless you and your family as the fight continues. I pray that you will get better every minute and things will get easier every minute. God Bless

It's so scary how much we have in common. Not only are both of our daughters with T21 and both named Gabi spelled the same way, but Gabi's dad's name is Jason, too. He is my ex-husband now though. I am sure yours will be a much better daddy! I don't even have to know him to assume that!

Oh yeah, I have a 7 month old baby, too! His name is Preston! He was born December 22nd! Now sing along with me "It's a small world after all..."
