Sometimes...

Forgiveness is easier to get than permission around here. Hope you understand.

As I watched that I didnt know whether I should laugh or cry, and when you sighed in the video it was just what I felt. This was a precious video. I can see so clearly how much she is LOVED. This was so precious Trish and I am smiling at how much our Lord is taking care of Ashley and you.
Thanks for the Blessing of this today, I needed it!

This video made me giggle. I love that she kept trying to drink from that cup even though she had ice all down her shirt. LOL! Thanks for sharing Trish!

Hey Trish,

You are so right. We did the same thing with water, and a few bites of the outside crunchy part with chicken nuggets. Your highly attuned sense of balance and priorities is not lost on me. You are right on target -- and she is lucky to have you.

Good Night. And remember, you are another day closer to home -- all together.

Oh my gosh, that is SO FUNNY (I was laughing out loud!) and Ashley looks SO good and happy! Too bad the machines started beeping or she may not have gotten caught! Praying to read those words "Moving on up(stairs)" and "Going Home!" soon. So happy you had some smiles today :o) and thanks for making me smile.

Precious. She has earned a little comfort, and so have you. Wish I was near to keep you company, or let you out into the sunlight. You sound great.
Ivey got her first set of prosthetic eyes this week. She looks great.

Oh my goodness that seemed like the best ice water that sweet thing had ever had! The sigh just about killed me! TOO MUCH!

You go momma! Dr's know what they're doing but so do us momma's sometimes! Keep it up!

Thank you God for the miracle of Ashley!

That was so cute and made my heart laugh just to watch her working that cup. And that "Mommys sigh" says it all. I hope the CT scan showed some great improvement to her bowel today, and I am praying for the lung to stop draining and return to normal. She looks great here and I hope you both get some fantastic rest tonight.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Ah, the things we take for granted like a drink of water. I laughed and cried at the same time while I watched this video and it was so wonderful to see a livelier side of little Ashley.

This video is the best! Still praying for you all....

What a great video -- I smiled and giggled all the way through it! It's wonderful to see Ashley enjoying that drink with such abandon!

Praying for a peaceful night for both of you!

Oh I just loved this video. I too watched it a couple of times. She is so determined to get that drink! She is so strong in her spirit and I just love that about her. She is a fighter and she gets what she wants and nothing is going to stop her! She is not giving up on life!!!
You are such an intuitive mother and tend to her so lovingly Trish. Down to just every little detail to make her the most comfortable that she can possibly be.
This was just a delight to watch this tonight. It brings big smiles to our faces. How precious she is and YOU TOO!!!!!!!!
Goodnight girls. We sure do love you,
Cheryl

This computer won't allow the video, I'll have to watch it upstairs later, but the comments made by others kinda filled in the blanks. Glad she got to have some enjoyment today! I bet that felt sooooooooooo good to her. You're a great mom. Can't wait to hear the results from her test today, pray that it shoes good progress. Praying you have a great night's sleep.......

How much fun are life's little blessings?!?! She is absolutely amazing. It was so much fun to watch her enjoy that ice. What a cutie!!!! My 5 year old daughter asks everyday if there is a new baby Ashley video. She LOVES to watch them. If there isn't a new one, we watch the old ones. She asks about and prays for Ashley every day. You all have an amazing story and I feel very blessed and honored that you are allowing me to be a part of it through your blog. God Bless you and keep up the good work. Trish~you are an inspiration!
Because He lives we CAN face tomorrow!
Prayers from GA!

That has got to be the funniest video I've seen in a long time. She is just so adament (sp?) about getting all that is in that cup. Such personality. What a doll. She looked like she was having so much fun. Love it.

Oh Trish-I am giggling, but crying at the same time. I did the same thing for my son when he was craving a drink. Sometimes, you just have to. I am so glad you let her do that. The look on her face and the looks with her eyes were funny and determined. Thank you for sharing this. She is beautiful! And I love how you dress her. To make her look beautiful even in the time of not feeling great! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers always.

Loving you from afar!

Shari

P.S. I would have "cringed" at ice down my shirt. She didn't even budge. :-)
