Gi is back at CHOP

I have seemed to pick up a cold. I am congested, and need oxygen to help me breathe.
Saturday night the nurse came to take care of me, saw a lot of white mucous, and I was put on oxygen because my stats would drop into the 60s when they took me off of it.
Mom and Dad took me to the ED at CHOP on Sunday, hoping they could fix the problem and send us all back home. Well mom and dad went back home at 10pm, but they kept me....because I only do well when I am on the oxygen. Its Tuesday, and I am in the Neurology wing at CHOP. Mom comes, everyday, to be with me and holds me through my seizures. She has to get my brothers to camp in the mornings, and then reschedules her work shift before she can be with me.
Today my friend and old roomate, Liam from Long Island, left the hospital. Liam was my roomate a month ago when I came in for having too many intense seizures. Liam has been at CHOP for months, he is 9 months old, and there is nothing else the doctors can do for Liam. Please pray for my friend, Liam, and his family.
Thank you for all your prayers.

Prayer Day for Gianna

My Big brother's class had a "prayer day" for me on Friday. When we arrived at Henry's school I was excited, and all the children in the classroom wanted to hold me. I didn't mean to make such a first impression, but I went into having my seizures. After about 10 mins I came through and started to enjoy the festivities. Lots of children and their parents in the 3rd grades were there lead by the teachers. Pink table cloths, pink roses, and flowers covered all the tables. My brother's teacher lead the celebration. The children sang a song to me. My Dad got up in front of everyone and Thanked them for such a nice celebration. All the kids in the 3rd grade wrote a little prayer for me.

Their parents put it in this beautiful book. They also made me a picture frame with all their finger prints on it.

This is what they wrote:

Dear God, Help Gianna through her life. Thank you for giving her to us. I Love You Gianna, Henry.

My running Aunts

This is my Aunt Kate (dad's sis) and my Aunt Sue Anne (mom's sis), they like to run. And they like to run on muddy trails where you have to hop big logs, cross rivers, dodge boulders, run through the woods, cross pasteurs, up hills, down hills, and to cross a finish line. They are crazy fun!
