Thanks for the continued prayers for our little angel. Your prayers are working!!! Avery is doing well. I continue to take her to Hermann Hospital every week for blood work. We sit up there for 6-8 hours, it's a long day but she loves going to see Dr. Azam and Ms. Jenny (her transplant cordinator).
She is still off of most of her anti rejection medication until we get her EBV virus under control. Since she has a chance of rejecting her new kidney without her full dose of medication, Dr. Azam is really keeping a close eye on her blood levels. As much as we don't want Avery to lose kidney, they'd rather her lose her kidney then risk her life to cancer which is what this virus that she has causes.
Avery is soooooooooooooooooo hyper!!!! She rarely sits in one spot for more than 15 seconds. Since I've been home with her, she is very attached to me and I LOVE it!!! She loves coloring, singing and watching "BABY" Shrek and Strawberry Shortcake. She thinks its the funniest thing to dump all of Alexa's toys out of the box after she has cleaned her room.
Cute Story: If you know me, you know I do not like ANY kind of bugs, insects, rodants, etc. I am extremely scared and honestly have a REAL fear. Well my poor Alexa is the same way. Yesterday I was in our room and I looked over at my clock and there was a LIZARD chilling on top. So of course the chicken I am was freaking out because I didn't know what to do because Raul was working. I didn't want to leave it there because then I wouldn't know where it would go, etc. Well after I calmed down, I decided to call Raul but I knew he would laugh at me like he always does and wouldn't believe me so I took a picture with my camera phone. The girls walked in the room and I was on top of my bed talking to Raul. Alexa started screaming and asking for her Dadd to just come home and get it. Avery got on the bed with me and was looking at the lizard. Avery started saying.... "wait, wait, I want to touch the big DINOSAUR" lol. It was the funniest thing. Now, every time I see a lizard I will always remember my sweet brave little 2 year old thinking it was a DINOSAUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
