After the pain of the last few days, we needed some good news. I'm sure that you can understand our joy when we heard that little Annabel was going to be released from the hospital. This little darling arrived two months ago. Her story is an amazing one indeed, one that will soon be on the website! To make a long story short... we weren't sure that she would make the trip, but she did; we met her at the hospital where she was immediately admitted into ICU... and now two months and a dozen miracles later... Annabel is home.
She is tiny and weak, but also so strong. We can't wait to see the difference love and nutrition make in this precious child. (IV nutrition for the first 3 1/2 months of your life is a great way to stay tiny, as you can see)
Above is Wendy, the nanny who stayed with Dale in the hospital for nearly a week before he was admitted into PICU. She is grieving, as are all of Dale's nannies, and we know that watching and holding the miracle of Annabel is going to do beautiful healing on all of our hearts.
