The best news

We just found out that if I start eating more I will go home the weekend of the 26 so that is great news. Also found out that I will be unhooked from the wires so no beeping for 4 hours but they will hook me back up at around 3 so I better enjoy it now. For some reason I feel tired but I have gotten better. I have realized that ever since my mom got her cancer it has been down hill people in the hospital and people passing away so it has been sad. But hopefully we will all get better. But everyone is having fun and helping me feel better so thank you everyone for getting me better. I can not wait till I go home I almost did a dance. Hope everyone has a good day today and enjoy.

Let's all do the go-home happy dance!! And keep eating.
Yes, life can be sad sometimes, especially when people around you are sick. That is one reason why we all need to be thankful for the friends and family who sustain us and for everything we have. Now that the sun is shining and flowers are blooming, I'm hopeful things will get better for everyone!

Hello from PA. Glad to hear that you will be going home soon. Being in a hospital will make you truly appreciate every thing at home - a newly painted room, spring flowers,home cooked meals etc. Jody told us that she had a great time with you. Happier days are coming.

hi brie--

try to eat everything you can put your hands on so that you can get home as soon as possible--i'm sure you will feel better when you are in your own bed in your own room--

stay positive--remember everything happens for a reason--that is what your grandmother always tells me when i am feeling down--

tell your mom and brother i said hello--love to all from your cousin loretta

I guess it is a little late now to leave a comment. But it won't hurt. I remember the first day of school. We had tech ed together. I remember you became my friend, and we both failed that stupid tech ed quiz together. Than, Justin. Ha, that was good times. I'm sorry I didn't come visit you. I didn't really get the message that you were in the hospital. I cried when I found out the awful news. You are probably happier now. You can get full night sleeps. I will never ever forget you. I am actually going to vote for you. You see, at school there is this survey where different people win different awards. So I am going to vote for you for most unforgettable. I have a feeling your going to win. I remember Monday morning Me, Tasha, Jenny, and Annie found out that your heart stopped and you almost died, but they brought you back. I remember how sad we were and we were crying. It's crazy. I was reading your blogs, and you sounded so happy, even though you weren't. I think you did wonderful under your conditions. I am going to miss you emmensily. I will never forget you. I hope to see you up in heavan some day. Rest in peace Gabby.

Love,
Meg

I miss you everyday, every minute. I know you are with us all, however I miss your shining smile and beautiful eyes. I write you letters everyday as this makes me feel close to you. I know you are with me, guiding me, but I still miss you all the time. I can not wait to see you again one day. You were the most special gift I ever experience. I love you forever.

Blue Against Blue

This heavenly blue butterfly
will fly high in the sky,
higher and higher.
The sunlight will touch
the blue on its wings
until it seems to disappear.
We think it’s gone
because the blue of the butterfly
is the exact same blue of the sky.
We think it’s gone because our
eyes are too weak to see-
and it’s difficult
to believe what we cannot see.
But the blue butterfly is not gone
it is still flying higher and higher,
near the sun.
Blue against blue
for now and forever.

Hi baby girl, it's been a year since you wrote on your blog. I remember in the hospital, trying to get you to write but you didn't want to anymore. You just wanted to get back home. Just so you know, I never had a hero in my life, now I do. It is you. You are so brave to go what you went through. If I could be half as brave as you are, that would be amazing. I don't understand it, but God needed you with him, and I have to accept that. I hope that one day I can look into your beautiful green eyes and see your smile again and give you the biggest hug ever! All the things you warned me about, I should have listened to you. You are wise beyond your years. I am finally out of the bad relationship that you really wanted me to end a long time ago. So that is one good thing that has happened. I think of you all the time and will always keep you close to my heart. I love you sweetiepie!
Daddy

One day things just change, we never realize how quickly they can and tend to take things for granted. It has almost been a year since you have made your journey and I think of you often. Your story inspired me to change my life, to embrace the beauty of simple things and to cast away the ugly. You were a sweet girl, always seeing the best in everyone. I hope you can look upon your family and guide them in the direction of peace, love, forgiveness and harmony. You are an inspiration to many, one of love and courage, one to always be remembered.

Your smile makes everybody light up. You are so peaceful, smart, and a beautiful nice person. I remember when we met in 4thgrade in band. We talked about you going to Ireland and being safety patrols together. And everyday i still think about you.
We love you Gabby

Tomorrow it will be a year since we said goodbye to you. I still think about you everyday and wish that you could be here with your family and friends. You changed my life in so many ways and all for the best. I would never have ended the abusive relationship I was in if it hadn't been for you and the courage that you taught me. You were the epitomy of love, peace and hope that lives in so many every day. I will miss you everyday for the rest of my days, I will think of you often and know that you are with those that need you. I know you look over your sweet brother everyday guiding him, as well as your dear mother, and father. You will never be forgotten and live in all that you touched. I will forever cherish you and your memory.

I miss you and know that will never change. Good things can happen to people after sadness and grief. I am happier now than I ever have been; actually getting married in the Fall. You will be there in my heart, always.

Your award was given at the county fair today. It reminded me of all the silly goofy times we had at the fairgrounds, and how we would talk about sitting under the tree when you got out of the hospital. Well, I sat under the tree today for you. Save a space for me where you are, baby girl!

Merry Christmas! Thinking of you and wishing you were here! I know you are always with us, in everything we do. This has been an amazing year and I know you see how happy I am with my new husband. I hope your mom and brother are doing well and I know you are with them this holiday.
