are not with her and that is a new challenge for her and those that care
for her. She is trying a tiny bit of nourishment in her ng tube and
we are told there are faint bowel sounds so we are back on poop patrol!
We need to send resting vibes to my Carrie as she struggles with a
sadder little one when she is so tired herself. I hope she can get back
her sleeping chair as it got appropriated by others last might! Too
many sick kiddos at the PICU!
Julia was getting her Mona Lisa smile this am and hopefully tomorrow a smile will appear!
I was blessed to have a lovely time with Kevin and Kelly and her
family. They did a phenomenal job on their first Thanksgiving dinner! I
almost felt guilty for having such a lovely time while Carrie and my
Julia were in the PICU! I look forward to having them both with us at

so lucky! If you do go out for madness tonight I hope you are careful
and have a joyful non stressful time. I will be happily esconsed in
