One day Anni was twirling and singing one of her original compositions.
"It's my gift!" she declared.
Dizzy, she fell with spectacular gracelessness.
Laying on her back on the tile floor she began flapping her arms and legs
as if she were making a snow angel.
"Falling down is also a gift!" says she.

back to surgery

Annika is back in the O.R. right now. After the fluid tap in interventional radiology yesterday, it was discovered that she has yet another type of bacteria (not yet identified, but different than the earlier discovered E. coli) infecting her abdomen. So they are going to open her abdomen and attempt to clear out all the infected fluid. We are nervous about her going back into surgery again, as it is never very easy for the surgeons. The surgeon called this "rebooting the computer."

Fingers crossed, and all kinds of good thoughts heading your way. I'm thinking about you, and will be checking back frequently to see when she gets out of the OR.
