So far...okay


Well..Grace was really good last night...but when 7am rolled around...not so happy. Her thoughts were probably something along the lins of "I ate over an hour ago you guys!!! It's time to eat again!!! What's going on?!!". Now that she hasn't eaten in 5 hours...she is reminding us every 5 seconds by wailing, screaming, kicking and rooting at EVERYTHING, that she is starving, and she will not stop pouting at us, and will definitely NOT smile at us, until she is given some food!! She is definitely not a happy camper. On top of being starving, her IV Line came out, so IV team is here, poking her, trying to get another IV in. I'm pretty sure she is never going to smile at me again. Hopefully after she is sedated and her sedation has worn off...she'll forget how mean we are and like us again. ;)
Other than her extremely upset, angry and hungry disposition, she is doing well. She hasn't really had another fever, so thats good news, and I haven't heard about anymore test results. She is on oxygen again because the elevation here is about 600 ft. higher than at home. It's actually really funny, because she's not used to having a nasal cannula in her nose, she is constantly snorting. It is really funny. She has a slight snort in her breathing, and then when she gets angry she really gets going. She she also is in her own little crib which is much cooler than her previous room-in bed. Its no fun to have her attached to a ton of wires and such again, but hey, if they make her more comfortable, than all the better. :)
Her Echo is sceduled for 11:45...so in about 30 minutes. It'll probably be about an hour or more in length because they're going to try and get it extremely detailed. Hopefully we'll find what is making Grace so uncomfortable and unhappy, and we'll be able to go home much more happy and hopefully healthy. :)
Oh...and for those of you with interest...primarily my family I'm sure...this was my special delivery. Topher bought it for me because he loves me...and I'm spoiled. hehe It's beautiful and I LOVE it. :)

I had to post this picture to show you her new adorable outfit from Grandma and Grandpa Andersen. They bought it from an Asian boutique in the Mall of America. Isn't she so cute?? Maybe she looks like a boy...but a darn cute boy for sure. ;) Thank you for all your prayers and support! We are so grateful for our amazing family and friends that are constantly praying for us and always offering help to us. Thank you thank you!!

Grace looks darling in that outfit! And I'm really excited for you and your new piano. You deserve it because I know you'll play it often!! Call me after the echo and let me know how it goes. I love you!

Well...darn it. I am so sorry she isn't feeling well. Hopefully they can find what is bothering her. It is so hard with little babies who can't just tell you what the matter is. Good luck.

And the piano is gorgeous!!! Yay!!! I might have to pick all of the Johnson's brains about pianos as I'm trying to convince Jason to let us get one. Where did you get it? What brands are nice? Yada yada.... I love it! Happy day for you!

That is good to hear that all is well at this point. We are still praying for you all and hope you can come home soon with a much happier little Gracey.

Wow, awesome piano!! :)

And an awesome baby, too. Glad to know she doesn't seem to be getting worse. I'm waiting on pins and needles to hear how the echo went.

Thanks for the update--I only check about every 20 minutes or so :>) The outfit is great--a little Gracey ninja karate kid. Gracey has the best smile! Rachel used her play phone today to call Grace--her end of the conversation went like this, "Are you asleep or awake? Oh! Did you have a nice nap? Are you feeling better?" Rachel would also update me on what Grace said--for example, she put the phone aside after the first question and said to me, "She's awake." So cute.

I'm glad it seems she's doing alright right now. Hopefully she continues to feel better. I like your new present. We need to come over some time and have you perform a recital with all your new music.

Wow! That is an awesome piano. I am happy you got it. If anyone appreciates a new piano it would be you. Toph is a good hubby to buy you that.
Grace doesn't look like a boy in that cute outfit. She looks like a very pretty little girl. I am glad her grandparents are able to buy cute outfits for her. I hope she is doing better now. I am on the edge of my seat waiting to hear how the echo went.

I know I've told you before but your little girl is so incredibly cute! I love hearing about your family. And I'm so glad you got a piano, I've heard you play and it is amazing.
