Mission accomplished

Today after the nurses took the Bard g-tube out and replaced it with a Mic-key button they said, "Wow--Annie did really well--we do this all the time, and she didn't kick, hit or scream!" (They wait until AFTER they're done before they tell you all the war stories.) I thought she did well, too, and I have to tell you, we felt your prayers. The whole thing was said and done in about a minute, and her tears dried up in about 2 minutes. Thank You, Lord. The Mic-Key is much less of a bother to change--and virtually painless. So glad we made the change.

I knew you'd love the Mic-key. Annie will, too. Praying that one day you won't need it anymore! One day SOON.

hugs to all,

Annie,

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!! It is so good to hear about how you are doing!!!! Way to Go!! You are such a special little girl. I am so happy for your mom and dad, and family. Someimes it is hard to wait on God's healing plan. Our concept of time and His are not the same, I have found. But you are doing it little one. You have made my day!

Annie kisses and giggles. What a blessing to see her continuing to progress and rediscover her abilities and the world around her. We'll continue to pray for her speech and daily tasks. What a testimony she will have someday- she is so blessed to be surrounded by such love and it's a blessing for us to witness God's grace and strength through Annie and your family. Thank you for letting us be a part of it. Always in prayer- Maurita
