Anna - Worry and Gratitude

Monday morning update - Anna did get to go home late yesterday afternoon. She will remain on antibiotics to finish out that course of treatment and should be able to return to her normal routine in a few days.

We're a thankful family this morning. We had a scare with my granddaughter Anna yesterday but all seems to be better now. She ended up being transported to a hospital in the Tampa area. She had been listless and non-responsive all day according to her nurse who called both Anna's mom and emergency services. I won't go into specifics, but it appears she received too much of a new medication from the nurse on duty the night before. Anna vomited and then aspirated requiring further treatment for aspiration pneumonia. Once my daughter Jamie got home, thankfully just before they had Anna loaded up to leave, she managed to secure Kayla with a friend, then she and Anna headed out to the hospital together via medical transport.

Anna, taken about a year and half ago. It gets harder and harder to get good photographs of her. I just wish I could photograph her amazing spirit as well.


After a night in a hospital, she seems to be recovering and may possibly come home today. There are so many daily concerns with Anna that I sometimes forget what a high risk child she is. What I never forget is the miracle of her being.

I am just very grateful this morning that she is okay and that for Anna, it is all just another day.
