Dear Daddy

Dear Daddy, 
since you are far away mommy took these pictures of me 
so you could see.  
I'm getting much better. 
They moved my bed out of the ICU about 11:30 last night.
Now I'm in the regular children's hall. 
My doctor said yesterday I was still very sick.  
It was hard for me to breath and I was coughing.
Today, my doctor said I am much much better.  
They have almost taken all the extra oxygen away 
so I can breath just the room air.  
They are only giving me one antibiotic but no more IV fluids.  
You know I'm such a good eater.  
My doctor said that mommy's milk is making me very healthy again.
I love you, Baby Brynlee
Princess Brynlee and her Seahorse 
They have these really neat pacies.  They smell good.
The nurses make me little nests in the blankets to help me feel secure.
They did have this wrapped around my big toe!  
For some reason it kept slipping off!
This tells them the amount of oxygen inside me....amazing.
My little arm is wrapped up like a cast.
This holds my IV straight and helps me from messing with it.

Praying for Brynlee! She is such a beautiful little princess! What a blessing! I have 4 girls and 2 of mind were in neonatal units for awhile and these little pictures remind me so much of that. She's just absolutely a living doll baby!

Hugs, Cass

I'm {very!} behind on my blog reading, so just now came across this post!
So sorry to hear your baby was sick! I really hate having sick children! Glad to see she's doing better now. :)

I think I remember meeting you in Lancaster -- didn't you give a testimony there before leaving for the field, at a Ladies Tea thing? We must have left for the field about the same time (I'm in Estonia, land of SNOW and MORE SNOW -- NO flip flops for us!). Glad to have stumbled upon your blog, can't for the life of me remember how, even thought it was just five minutes ago, and very sorry to hear about the valley you are going through. Brynlee is a beautiful girl, and we will be praying that she recovers and that you will enjoy many many years of joy with her!
