  3. A facebook friend asked her facebook friends to pray for your little girl, and I immediately fell in love with your family and especially your little girl. May God bless you and may she come out of this the little girl you have known her to be. Thank you for sharing her progress. Everyday I check your blog several times for her progress...you and your family seems so amazingly wonderful. I have faith that everything will be okay, unfortunately sometimes the bumps in the road dont seem like it will. But with a lot of faith and prayers, please trust it will be.

  7. The more you understand, the more the fear starts to fade away. Little by little that knowledge can help you to feel more confident about the medical care and decisions. I highly recommend reading about and watching the documentary on Bob Woodruff, the reporter that suffered a traumatic brain injury while imbedded in Iraq. His recovery has been nothing short of miraculous. It was an inspiration to me when I watching it awhile back. He had trouble with words, so his kids would sit on his hospital bed with flash cards and quiz him. He still has some difficulty, but has made a remarkable recovery...so much so that you wouldn't realize it now unless you knew the back story. I can get my hands on the documentary if you'd like, just send an email.

    I've dealth with my own health problems for a long time, tried to adopt another child for a couple years, and now we're looking for a new agency. I've found several innovative doctors to help with my care. If you need help, are frustrated, or just want to get some coffee I'm here for you. (and so is the rest of my family!) We love you all and pray several times a day for all of you.

    Btw, I was supposed to pass on a message from Emma. Peanut butter chocolate face. She said you'd know what it meant. They say the goofiest things. :) She's waiting patiently until Avi is out of the PICU and in a regular ward so that she can see her. She wants to give her a hug and kiss.

  8. I cried tears of joy this morning when I read that she was being transfered out of PICU. All of the prayers must be working.
