March 25, 2011

The day began with my awaking to Anaya sleeping peacefully with her head over my heart. She felt hot to the touch and I took her temperature - 39.5 - That's hot! We got up and gave her some medicine and her antibiotics. Nurse got here and took over so that I could work on organizing some milk donations. Right now they are cuddling in the rocking chair and reading stories.

I've had an idea to start "Anaya's Library of Hope". People can send Anaya books and stories that we can read to her, as she is blind - but she can hear and she loves to be read to. The intention is that we will put a sticker inside each book that says who it was donated from. Then if or when Anaya passes away we will donate all the books to the local Nelson Library for children to enjoy in memory of Anaya. Every time one of the books is read to a child it will be a loving moment for Anaya's soul. You can get more information about Anaya's Care Drive and Library of Hope on our Facebook page "The Anaya Initiative" under the discussions tab.

We are so incredibly happy to report that several women from all over Canada have offered to send milk to Anaya! We still need milk donations and I'm asking that anyone who wants to donate please e-mail me at We really need to get another freezer for breastmilk. We are having a breastmilk-freezer fundraiser this week - so if you can contribute even 5 or 10 bucks that would sure help out.
