Party Girl

Today, Abbie went to her first birthday party since she was injured — a gathering of very beautiful princesses and ballerinas. She was quite pleased when Katrina, one of the birthday girls, put a pretty necklace around her neck, and she used her switch fairly often while we were there. It was frustrating but good for her to be around girls her age doing girly things.

The party was for Katrina and Christa Cheshire, who turned 8 and 5 respectively. Many of you joined me in praying for their daddy, Walt and their mom, Katie while Walt was in Iraq. He is back now, and it was wonderful to see him taking video of his daughters blowing out their candles…another confirmation of God’s goodness and protection.

By the time we arrived home Abbie was one pooped-out princess, and slept for the rest of the afternoon. She awoke with smiles and is back to her normal self after our rough day yesterday. I got a message from her neurologist that all the blood tests taken last night came back normal – praise God! So, the source of the puffiness is still unknown, but we haven’t seen it return today.

I’d hoped to post a picture of Abbie at the party, but by the time I got the camera out her fatigue and frustration were climaxing and the whining had commenced. So, we’ll just keep the crown for another day and get a shot of her smiling.

  4. Hi,

    Love the new site! And the frequent updates. Glad to hear Abbie’s tests were all normal. Praise God! God is good! Hopefully, they’ll be able to figure out what is causing the swelling in her feet.
