I can tell you now that we came so close to losing her on Wednesday. It is unbelieveable how quickly dehydration can take someone down. When we walked into the peds unit, Brianna was white as a sheet and completely limp in my arms. They took one look and before I knew it there was a team of medical professionals there and they immediately took Brianna up to the ped. intensive care unit. Her heart was working overtime due to the dehydration and because of that and her petite size, it was next to impossible to get an iv in. Thanks be to God, it was not her time to go and we have her for a little while longer. Makes me smile with such gratitude.
Tomorrow we will celebrate two years of life. Might not sound like much but when told initially it would be less than 24 hours....her life has been an eternity. We have been so blessed. So, tomorrow, please say a prayer of thank you for this little life that has been such a blessing to so many.

oh, and our new little puppy dog, Belina. Pics to follow.
