we are back in the hospital again. *sigh* clinic visit was ok… but given her cruddy labs yesterday, and a desat episode this morning on top of her not-great-night…. they felt better admitting us.They also informed us they wanted to do a heart cath asap to make sure they wernt missing anything. They bumped someone else in cath lab tomorrow to fit her in so we are first case. they are going to do a  heart biopsy at the same time which should tell us better if she is in rejection or not. I am a wee bit overwhelmed…. it is happening all so fast. She looks good this afternoon though… playing with her cords. She isnt happy about getting another iv. Please be praying for our baby….that they can fix whatever isgoing on so we can go home for good!!!!



  1. Praying for some answers from the cath. I am so sorry that you are back in the hospital so soon. I wanted to share a quick thought that just came to my mind. One time when Jacob got readmitted and I was so upset there was someone up at the children's hospital from our church and he said a prayer with me and he told me "If He brings you to it, He will bring you through it." All these years later that has stuck with me. Some nights I just stare out the hospital window when I feel so overwhelmed and just repeat it to myself over and over. No matter how alone we may feel at times or how helpless we get, God is always there with his loving arms wrapped around us. He will never abandon us, though at times we may feel like he has. God will bring you through this, and I know you and your precious baby are in so many people's prayers right now.

  2. Tears fall as I read this update. You are on our minds and in our prayers. May God grant the doctors wisdom and bring healing to Annabelle along with an extra measure of peace for you.

  3. Lifting sweet Annabelle up in prayers!

  4. Praying for sweet Annabelle, for you and your family as well. This has been quite the year. You know, you should get in touch with Julie (Jim and Tracie Peterson's daughter). Her daughter has had brain surgery several times since birth, was given a rather low chance of survival and has made it past her 6th birthday. But Julie has a story to tell! Let me know if you'd like me to connect you two.

  5. God is bigger than this! We know he can turn things around quicker than how quickly she ended up back in the hospital. You are not alone! Isaiah 41:10 We are praying!

  6. I'm so sorry! Praying for you all, and remembering that God's favorite word is "impossible."

  7. Hugs, Krista, cuz it sounds like you could use some. Prayers, too.

  8. George Schroeder

    Still praying persistently (Luke 11), being shamelessly bold and banging at heaven's door for Annabelle and the entire family.

    He is good.

  9. Krista, Please let Michael and me know if there is anything we can do to help you or the family. We are always just right next door. Praying for Annabelle and for the rest of you. She needs to get better so we can have play dates!

  10. Praying for you Krista, Annabelle and family.

  11. I am so sorry Krista! I will be carrying you in prayers…which I could actually carry you! Love you so (even though we have never met!)

  15. I've been out of town the past 4 days and am just now catching up on Annabelle. Krista, I know it must be just so hard having to take steps backward, when you are just now making progress. I am praying. So many are praying. We love you. (((hugs)))

  16. Girl, I'm praying. Hope this is just a little bump in the road. Hugs from Texas!

  17. Oh, Krista, we've re-upped the prayers here in WNY… Precious baby girl…
