Dannity Update...

A lot has happened since my last entry.

I am having problems with my computer at home so i am typing this entry at work.
When i can figure out my modem problem i will type a more detailed entry about Dannity with pictures and everything!

Dannity has gotten much much better! Infact she may be coming home sometime this week!
She still has a feeding tube but she is able to eat regular food. The poor baby has had an IV in so many places on her body that she looks like a pin cusion! At the beginning of all this they had to put a main line in her groin and in her neck but now she just has an IV in just her hand.

She still only smiles at the kids when they make funny faces at her but she looks at us adults with this look that says..."Whadda you want?" but she does reach for me and wants me to hold her. I think adults must represent all the little procedures that have been done to her over the last month.

Her 1st birthday was December 18th and we had a little party for her. She was a bit overwhelmed. The weather turned bad that evening with ice then thunderstorms (only in St Louis!) So me and the other kids spent the night at the hospital. On the intensive care floor they have things available for family that stays over so we were very comfortable in a small waiting room with cots that we had just to ourselves. It was like a slumber party!

I need to get back to work now. I will write more later with hopefully some pictures!

Dannity may be coming home this week! Yeah!!

Till later.. Ü
