Abbagale Carson's Journal
Written Apr 22, 2010 6:49pmHope this update finds everyone well:)
Abbie has been doing great and I have not took the time to update in 3 months???? Where does the time go? Well, Abbie has a new little brother and his name is Brody, I think she likes him and we are super blessed:):)
She weighs 20lb 11oz now and is 33.5 inches long. This is GREAT news and I am very excited for Abbie and all she can do. She CAN pull and hold her head up for a moment! She CAN walk 10 steps in her gaittrainer! She CAN say mama, i love you, and yea! She CAN grow and develop! She HAS lost 5 baby teeth just like any other child would do! She DID outgrow her stander and braces and have to get a new one that she loves! She DID outgrow her chair for school and got a new one also that she loves, is much more supportive, and helps her be the big girl she is!
I do need some prayer warriors at work. Abbies plasmalogen levels, long chain fatty acids, and DHA levels have been consistent with RCDP diagnosis since birth, BUT last year they were changed and almost at a normal level:):) We did redraw them on April 5, 2010 and got the results today, and her levels are back down??? Now everyone is stumped and we WILL find the answers!! This is bad news, but I know things could be worse, Abbie IS happy and healthy, so all numbers aside I AM VERY THANKFULL!!!!! I spoke with Dr. Braverman this evening and she along with her collegues are very curious as to what is going on. I know you moms understand this was devstating and unexpected news, so I had a good cry, got really mad, then decided I better pray. I feel like I may have an answer, her formula, I will be working on this tomorrow and getting her swapped back to a differant one to see what happens.
PLEASE PRAY for us to find the answer!!! Not only would this help Abbagale, but could also help her Rhizofriends all over the world. I pray that GOD is using Abbagale in a MIGHTY way, and I will be quick to listen to all instructions from GOD and know without a doubt when he speaks to me.
Also, please keep the Thomas family in your prayers, you can go to resources and click on JacksonThomas for up to date info on him.
Thank you so much for checking on us and all your prayers for Abbie and all her Rhizofriends.....

She is perfect, wonderful, and the most beautiful girl in the world:):):)
Abbie is growing up sooo fast and is definately a little girl now. She doesnt act like a baby or want to be treated like one. She has her own preferences and has for a long time, but now seems much more ademate for things to be her way. She weighs 19 lb and 9 oz and is 33 inches long:)
Abbie's favorite thing to do is say LOV, LOV to get your attention. If this doesn't work she throws a screaming, crying tantrum with REAL tears:( She really knows how to work people and her beautiful smile can get her anything.
SHe has had a fever, pneumonia and MRSA. All that is better and we pray for her to have a great rest of the winter. We miss our friends and church, but home is the best place for her. Please keep her and all our RHIZOKIDS in your prayers as it gets colder and yuckier.
The baby is growing fine with no signs of any problems:):):) We still do not know boy or girl and Keith doesn;t want us to find out???????
THANKS fopr checking on Abbie and check out her new pictures. Yes, an update and pictures:):) HAPPY NEW YEAR
Written Oct 28, 2009 10:26pmHello !!!
Finally a happy update:)
Abbie is doing great:) She lost her 3rd tooth, and she has two!! permanent teeth that are through the skin and one is almost all the way in:):):)
She is such a big girl and she is always so happy. She is my awesome little big girl and a MIRACLE from GOD!!! I think she loves getting up and going to school everyday and I know her teachers and friends love her being there(she is the only girl in her class). She is eating good and we do not use her tube at all in the day anymore:):) She tries so hard to "talk", rollover and hold her head up. Abbie will get her gaittrainer tomorrow and we are so excited. This will help her learn to walk:):)
Please keep us in your prayers. The holidays are coming up and it is way hard to make a family picture and do all the family activities normally without Jake. I will do it for the other children, but seems like part of our family is missing. If you could see through us he is definately in our hearts.
Please also dont forget the other families thats children have already earned thier wings. THIS STINKS!!!! No matter how long I just don't think you ever really feel complete again.....
Winter is coming quickly, so please pray health and peace over all of our Rhizokids.......
