Happy B-Day PBJ!!!!

I keep losing my wireless signal and it is causing me great grief! I will be e-mailing or trying to upload pix to this blog and POOF, it's all gone. I will keep trying. If there is one thing about me, I am stubborn!!!

Paula Z - Help! I lost Jeremy and Melissa's info. I don't know where my brain is. Can you help me out? Thanks!!! Send them this e-mail address and have them e-mail me waitingforahren@yahoo.com

Now that I have had some time to spend with PBJ I have a better idea of her condition. She is on 3 medicines, one which I have to inject her with (Yikes!). She is on anti-seizure meds that she will be on for years, maybe life. She is on a med to keep the swelling in her brain down, and she is on a powerful antibiotic. In reading thru the medical reports I also found out she had a serious urinary tract infection which did not respond to the normal antibiotics, therefore, she gets the heavy duty stuff now.

She is very thin. I can see every one of her ribs. She had some fat on her in July. A little chub on her thighs. Now she is so thin. She is making up for it though. Yesterday she ate 6 ounces at 5 pm, 5 ounces at 6:30 pm and 6 punces at 9pm. Then she passed out and slept until 6am when she ate 8 oz. She then conked back out and is snoozing away. Each ounce and eaxh ZZZ she catches is helping her to heal. Today I am going to concentrate on just pumping her full of good nutrition and lots of love.

Candy - I don't have access to my regular e-mail. I would LOVE te info from your friend. e-mail me at waitingforahren.yahoo.com

Kimberly - Samantha is our guiding light. A beacon of hope. She is gorgeous and obviously thriving. I keep telling Peri Brynn about her and hoping a little girly jealousy kicks in and gets her in a competitve frame of mind. hah!

Wendy, contacted Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison for you. Check your email since they need to talk to your personally. I also put a call into my lawmaker, Jerry Costello.

On to my next phone call for help.

Praying that God will heal PBJ's little body! Can't wait to see pictures of her.
Hope you both have a miracle filled birthday.

Wendy, I am a total stranger (but I do read your blog regularly). I had a dream last night that you were able to take PBJ home with you. Here's hoping my dream comes true!

You go, Girl! Praying for compassion on PBJ at the embassy.

Happy Birthday to your little darling!
