Abby's lungs are worse today than they were on Friday. They are filling with fluid and making things tough on her. Since she is still making a lot of white blood cells, we were allowed to go home. Fortunately, she is not contagious to others.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Abby is supposed to be at dance camp. Abby is very excited about going. She longs to do things that healthy children take for granted. I am planning on taking her but will be staying at the studio "just in case" Abby needs help.
Last year we got a call, after Abby was dressed for dance camp, saying there was a bacteria growing in her blood and we needed to take her to the hospital immediately. I am praying that this year Abby will be able to have fun and learn a little.
Thank you for continuing to pray for Abby and asking others to pray as well. We are weary but blessed.
Abby is back at home. She feels awful. All she does is sleep and is just kind of a ghost of herself nowadays. I hate to see her this way.
We went out into our yard to watch some fireworks going off around us but were ATTACKED by swarms of mosquitoes. We are 3 days into a predicted 14 day stretch of rain coming from the hurricane/storm that landed in Mexico and swept north. I felt dozens of them on me. When I got in the house, I killed a dozen of them still feasting on my legs (my blood is very sweet; made mostly of sugar...).
By the time another solid week of rain ends we are going to have a bonafide epidemic of mosquitoes. Abby and Hannah are particularly affected by them. They get huge bumps and welts with every bite.
Thanks for your kind comments and love for our family.
