Another Good Day

Bailey had episodes of low blood pressure today, but no one seems to be too concerned. They seem to be thinking it might be a dehydration issue so they've given her some fluid. She had a small fever last night and now today she was pretty achy and has thrush (a sore throat and white stuff on her tongue). Dr. D came in and said, "So we gave you the crud on top of everything, huh?" Probably just something she picked up here. This afternoon and evening have been really good. She's felt so good, in fact, that she took 2 walks! Yeah!! She hasn't walked further than 6 feet in the last 4 weeks. And she did great. She said she felt so light. I can imagine! We walked down to the vending machines, and she purchased about $7.00 worth of snacks.

Rissy is spending the night with us tonight. We're so excited to have her here with us. Josie went home with Tom. They're coming back in the morning for Rissy and they're going to Aunt Vickie's to celebrate Thanksgiving. Bailey and I are going to watch the Macy's parade and just hang out - we'll take a few walks around the heart center, eat some snacks, take some naps, and just be thankful to God for all of our many, many blessings.

Hope your Thanksgiving is the best ever! Ours already is.

Angie

We've never met, Bailey, but I've known your mom and her family for years. I actually graduated high school with Scott, Aunt Cindy, Uncle David, Uncle Brian, and about 200 others. It's great hearing that you're doing better. I'm in Minnesota, so I can't bring you any plates of Thanksgiving food, so how about if I EAT a couple plates for you? (Please say okay).

From a total stranger: I have been following your blog since the beginning. Keep up the good work, Bailey. Attitude is 90% of the battle. And I think you have that battle won! May God continue to bless your recovery and your family.

It doesn't matter where we've giving our thanks this year. The hospital, Iraq, home, work, etc., we just need to remember to give thanks for our many blessings. Thank you, God, for love of family and friends and for our personal miracles.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Bailey and Angie. Love, CAROL

P.S. God, thank you for this Blog!

Happy Thanksgiving Bailey!
I'm so glad you are doing so good. At church last night we took turns giving thanks for things this past year. I was thankful for my church and people that help me pray, and I am thankful that God answers prayer. You are an answered prayer. I thank God for you too. Have a grate day.

Dear Bailey,
This is Nana! (Ryann and Grae's Nana) My Kindergarten class sent you books and cards back in 2004. I just found out about your recent surgery. I was so sorry to hear that you were having some problems again, but I am so happy to hear that your recovery is improving. We will continue to pray for a miracle healing from God. Everyone is so proud of your positive attitude and strength in this battle. Keep up the good work! You are real inspiration to many other children. Love, Nana
