Yep! We got to hold our daughter today...not once but twice!!! We went in to see Annabelle this morning and much to our surprise the nurse asked if we would like to hold her. OF COURSE!!! So, we counted it a tremendous blessing since we were told that it would probably be the night before surgery before we could hold her. She immediately knew she was in Mommy's arms and settled right in to snuggling. Then again this evening, we were told we could hold her again! This time Daddy got in on the action and held his daughter for quite a while. There was some definite love going on between those two! She has been making little grunting and squealing sounds but didn't make a peep when she was in our arms. Today was a blessing!
Surgery has been scheduled for Friday...please be in prayer for this big day in our lives. There is an outside chance that Annabelle's surgery may be bumped to Monday if another child needs surgery immediately but as long as nothing changes we face our next giant then.
