The Queen of 8-East

Tonight's update will be short because we have a testy web connection here in the room and I have a little princess watching me like a hawk to see if I'm going to change my mind about bedtime and invite her to get up and play Dora. But it's 10:00 and I'm pooped, so to bed we go!

We're doing really well up here on 8 East. Elizabeth is settling in and today spent quite a bit of time on her feet coloring, playing board games with her little people. She loses so much strength when she's in the hospital so the more activity we can encourage the better. Even standing is great and tiaras are heavy so she logged a few hours today. There's nothing new to report except she seems to be feeling great and bouncing back quite nicely. The one outstanding issue is, she's got a half a dozen "funny" test results that have 6 different teams scratching their heads...Nephrology, Hematology, Infectious Disease, Immunology, Gastroenterology are all baffled by some recent findings and don't know what to make of them. They could be really serious or nothing at all. They'll draw more labs and consider further tests tomorrow, but
in the mean time, will you pray that each and every thing that is out of whack in that little body of hers will be made right? and soon?? We'd like to leave here on schedule please. We've got a zoo train to catch!

The pics above are of our day today. Ruby spent the day with a friend and then came up for dinner. Matt finally made a make-shift high chair for her so she'd at least sit still while eating Elizabeth's dinner. After dinner the girls dissolved into giggles while playing hide and seek in the curtains. Too cute.

Thanks so much for your prayers and emails and meals. We are shored up, and feeling encouraged and strengthened as we go to sleep tonight. To God be the Glory.
