A Very Merry Christmas!

Luella followed up her crazy Tuesday with just one seizure on Wednesday morning.  She ended up sleeping really well Tuesday night. I woke her around 3 am for more ibuprofen but she went right back to sleep. Despite keeping her on a schedule of ibuprofen and acetaminophen she still spiked a fever about an hour after her morning dose of ibuprofen which resulted in a seizure around 10 am Wednesday morning. After she slept most of the morning she started perking up around noon and was so chatty at lunchtime, she hardly ate anything! She hasn't had a fever or a seizure since! We were supposed to go to Christmas in South Dakota with my side of the family on Christmas Eve and since Luella seemed to be doing so much better, we decided to go! She had such a fun time! Santa even popped by grandma and grandpa's house! Thank you so much for keeping Luella in your thoughts and prayers - they got her through this so quickly!

The UTI has us wondering about her bladder reflux. Based on her last visit with the urologist we thought we were clear of any more issues. She is scheduled for a follow-up with her urologist in the spring. We will be contacting him to see if he wants to see her sooner.

Precious Ruby - the little girl I mentioned in my previous post, went to be with Jesus around 3am on Christmas Eve morning. I can't imagine the loss and heartache her family is experiencing. At this time when we should be celebrating the birth of our Savior, they are mourning the loss of their daughter. Please continue to keep the Hanson family in your prayers! http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/rubyeclipse

I want to leave you with a happy memory... While in Florida for Luella's Make-A-Wish trip we had a Christmas celebration at Give Kids the World Village. We got to meet Santa and Luella was mesmerized by his beard! Merry Christmas everyone!

Luella loved Santa's beard!
More memories from Florida on our Christmas card....
