Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Anniversary Sweetie! I love you!

Happy Birthday Debbie! I love you too!

Bailey had a fairly uneventful weekend, but yesterday she continued to struggle with her fever and this time Tylenol didn't break it. The surgeon visited last night and ordered some ibuprofin, and that finally broke it and she slept all night - even snored! That's the first good night sleep she's had since her surgery. She really didn't eat anything yesterday but drank quite a bit. I'm hoping today will be much better since she slept good. She's been taking her daily walks, but not getting as far as McD's - she's got some sore muscles in her left leg and hip and they think it's from the "marathon" walk she took Friday.

Still hoping to move out of ICU today, but not sure that's going to happen since she had a fever all day yesterday. They swabbed her nose to check for RSV last night - haven't heard the results of that yet. They're really baffled about this fever. They've done pretty much every test and everything's showing up negative. There was some thought that she might be dehydrated which sometimes causes fevers so they took away her limit on liquids.

I need to get back - I slipped away to take a shower.

Have a great day, everyone, and I'll post another message tonight.

Love you, Angie

Happy Valentine's Day Bailey!
You have been in all of our thoughts and prayers!! Cassie asks me at least twice a day "Any news on Bailey???" or "When can I send her a card??" Four weeks ago, she put in a prayer request card at church for you & made sure that the Pastor would not take you off until she allows it.
Keep up with the progress!!
Love, Karen, Jeff, Cassie & Troy

Happy Valentine's Day, Bailey! So glad to know that you were able to get a really good nights sleep. No doubt that will make you feel much better! I was reading some comments and saw where our friends, Pat and Lester, wrote you a note. He's probably serious about having a Mug Root Beer with you one day, so get ready! You will have to hire someone to take care of scheduling all your dates from the sounds of things...or maybe the hospital already has someone assigned to that task in the entrouage you seem to have?! Hope you have a fantastic day! Love and prayers to you from all of us(hugs and kisses, too!).

Happy Valentine's Day Bailey,

I know prayer works, since a lot of people here in PA and a few other states have been praying for you and all your family. I am glad to hear you are improving and hope to hear soon that you are out of ICU.

It was nice spending time with you at Thanksgiving.

Keep up the good work and follow all the doctors and nurses orders.

Love you dearly, Auntie Jean

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, BAILEY!!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, ANGIE AND TOM!!

Bails, Did you get our surprise we left on your ICU cart yesterday? It's big and pink and has lots of goodies in it. You didn't look like you felt too good yesterday. God love your little bones! I can't wait until we can give you luvins' in the flesh. Until then, we'll keep blowing kisses through the glass. We love you! Hope today brings a little extra cheer. Every little heart I see today will remind me of you!! Mmmuuuaaahhhh!
(That's how you spell a great big smooch!)

Ang,
Did you find your ham salad sandwiches in the fridge? We left more raddishes and fruit too! I hope Bails got her Valentine Box full of goodies today. If not, look for the nurses with rings of chocolate around their mouths! They're the ones that stole from you! ha ha There's a little "token" in there for you and the girls too! : ) I love you!

Hi there our Baileygirl! Hoping and praying today is a good day for you. Happy Valentines day to you! I'll bet you have all of your special valentines lined up at the door waiting to give you a smooch! Did you watch any of the Grammy Awards last night? Your boy Keith was on there singing his heart out! He is cute...I've never paid attention...what's the matter with me?! ha

Happy Anniversary Angie and Tom! Mom was in Seaside this past saturday and said it was as fun as always. She thought about us when she was there.

Wishing you all love and peace on this day of Valentines.

Bailey, you hang in there sweet pea!
