Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

Too Sweet


I sure am hoping to take this little bundle home to her daddy for Christmas. She just looks SO good! Those rosy cheeks are too much. She is feeling better today. Still coughing pretty deep, but happy and rosy. We got all dressed up and went out to grab a camera. Her dad was having withdrawals.

I don't expect to hear from the team until late tomorrow afternoon. Unfortunately we are not on the top of their priority list. If I haven't heard from them by 2 or 3 then I will call and get the word. I think they are going to want to remove her central line before we leave town and that may keep us here until they can find the time in their schedules to do it. If that is not the case and we are told all is well with her labs then I am loading the car tomorrow afternoon and taking off. I am going to get our laundry tonight, but I won't allow myself to begin packing just yet. It would be too discouraging to have to unpack those bags if we don't get to leave. So as badly as I would like to have our things waiting by the door I will not.

Allie wants to be the first to know if we are coming home tomorrow. I promised to call her as soon as she gets out of school. If I find out before then I just might place a call to the school and ask to speak with her. She is hoping with everything she has that Ash and I will be on our way tomorrow.


Well, I just wanted to share a picture of our sweet baby with you guys since it has been so long. Thank you so much for your prayers. We sure hope to share good news with you all tomorrow. Take care my friends. Trish

Wow, Trish she looks great! Id like to get up to see you tomorrow before you go, but Caleb's running a high temp, so that probably wont happen. So I will have to mail your Christmas gifts!

I hope and pray that you all make it home tomorrow.

She looks beautiful! So glad she is beginning to feel better. What a sweet little girl. Can't wait to hear the news tomorrow. I will be on the computer all day! ;) Can just picture you now driving with her all snuggled up in her car seat and you both listening to Christmas music! How wonderful will that be! Praying...

Here's a question for you: If God grants your Christmas wish and you all leave for home tomorrow, would you mind taking a detour to Kentucky so I can squeeze those rosy little cheeks?!? Trying to squeeze them through the computer monitor just doesn't seem to work.... :-) Seriously, that picture just takes the cake! Couldn't be any cuter!

I've been praying and praying, and will continue more of the same until I hear some news! I'm especially praying for your peace as you await the decision. I know your own heart rate must be increasing hourly as you draw closer and closer to getting an answer, so I'm praying that tonight, you'll relax and rest in Him.

I just love those peachy cheeks. They are the sweetest ever. Trish, I know that when you get the word to go, you will throw together your things and hit the road with joy. Praying you will be put high on the list of priorities tomorrow as the Lord has a way of causing these things to be. I pray you sleep like a baby tonight so your mind can get some peace as you wait for the good news that I just know is coming your way. My best gift this Christmas will be knowing you are at home with family celebrating as I will be here with mine. Please kiss her cheeks for me.

Love you, Laurie in Ca.
