We found out that Tess is doing a little backsliding. Because she hasn't eaten in over a week, acid is eating away at her stomach lining. My little girl needed her first blood transfusion today. That transfusion was four hour process, which meant that we couldn't hold her all day.

Of course, the new "stomach problem" means that we're even further from starting to feed her and then take her home.

I joked with Jon that next time I'll think twice about naming a daughter after a saint who PRAYED to have the grace of sickness and then was happily paralyzed for over three years.

St. Teresa of Avila, we pray for Baby Teresa's speedy healing. Please send her home in less than three weeks.
