Gabrielle - I will never underestimate what you are capable of.  In fact, I make sure to never, ever put any limits on what you will or will not achieve in your life.

Today, you did something amazing.

After meeting with the Respirologist at Children's on Friday he suggested playing around with your oxygen levels by taking off your prongs for short periods during the day.

Today you went without any O2 for two and a half hours.

What a wonderful sense of freedom we experienced together today!

Now you sleep deeply with your oxygen at only 1/8th and you're saturating at 98%.

You are one. amazing. girl.  I can't wait for tomorrow to take those prongs off again and let you breath in that fresh, ocean air.

Sweet dreams baby girl.


  1. Hallelujah!! Love you sweet cheeks!

  3. I feel special for being there on this special weekend. She is such a beautiful little spirit. Thanks for having me and I can't wait to be out again this summer to visit again.

  4. Amazing little peanut. You know what's really weird? I had a dream about this exact thing, except in the dream she was off oxygen for four hours. She'll get there, I have 'seen' it!! xox
