Linda!! first what a picture...she is changing right before our eyes.

Secondly, I don't have the words to express how sorry I am for this set back..1 tiny step forward, 30 back it might seem this time..(doc says normal). however, I will pray and pray that she come off the vent..and Chasity, keep the faith!!

Glad to see you here, Sunnie! Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers. Yes, Ally is changing. I watched a slide show of all my pictures of her yesterday. It was quite touching. Here is the update I received today:


August 12, 2003


Edwin and I went to visit today and she was up and down on her oxygen. She went down pretty low at times but brought herself back up. She let Edwin and I touch her head and rub on her face. I have attached a pic of Edwin while rubbing Ally's head. You can tell how small she is from the size of his hand.

We talked with the Doctor again today to see about Ally and he said they were going to try and start weaning her again tomorrow. They went down to 20 bpm's today from 30 bpm's.

The doctor said Ally would be at LSU till at least the middle of October if not longer. We asked about long term effects from the lung disease and he said she would probable be sick the first several years of her life. She will catch colds, viruses, RSV,etc. very easily. They way he put it is, "she will never run in an Olympic Marathon." (we also know, God is the healer, and Ally is just the one to prove doctors wrong) Of course, no smoking and she is not to be around someone smoking. Her lungs are very immature and have lots of developing to do.

I got some really cute pics of her today, hope you enjoy them as much as i do. One pic she is yawning, too cute.... She even sneezed today.

i am sorry to hear she is sick.

BUT, i pray to god that she gets better.

i am not too familiar with her story. but was she born premature? or what? because she looks incredibly small.

she will be in my prayers.

Oh gosh everytime I see one of her pics it brings back a flood of memories of my Son.. he was born weighing 3 lbs and it was sooooo hard leaving the hospital without him!

Thank you for keeping us updated! Continuing to pray for Ally! She is such a little angel~

lovingbilly4ever,

Ally and her identical twin sister Alicia were taken by C-section at only 24 weeks. They had developed a heart condition which also went to their Mother, my niece, Chastiy. Alicia weighed 15 oz. and lived only a week. Ally weighed 1.46 lb. and continues to fight for her life. Please continue to uplift her in your prayers.

To everyone else, we thank you for your continued prayers.

Default PARENTS GET TO HOLD ALLY!!!!!

Weekend update! God is Good!! Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers.......Linda

From Chastity:
Praise God, Praise God.....Ally is off her ventilator. Friday night she decided to pull her tube out, so they let her try and breathe on her on. She took a couple small breathes and one big one and started breathing on her own. She has done great ever since. She requires only 29% of oxygen pumped into her bed. Which is only 8% more than what we breathe daily.

She is on 21 cc's of formula and tolerating it. She is able to move around and do as she pleases. She is so beautiful. It is nice to see her without all the tape. She only has tape for her food line.

The other good news is that Ed and I got to hold her Saturday. It was wonderful. I did not want to put her down. She is so tiny to hold, her dad was a little scared but it was so worth it.

The doctors said don't be surprised if she has to go back on the ventilator if she gets tired and can't breathe on her own anymore, but we have claimed it in Jesus's name and we are believing for a full healing. They had also told me Friday she would be on the ventilator for several more weeks and she showed them.

I could go on all day, but I won't. I have attached some pics. Hope you enjoy.

She weighs 2 lbs. 10.8 oz. She has lost some but it's because her tubing from the ventilator is gone.

Please continue to pray for strength for Ally.

Chaz

My computer is even allowing me to see Ally and her daddy. I am happy. I love those hospital baby blankets. And a matching Bonnet. Sweet baby girl. Strong surving baby girl. Thank you God.
